sorry for being late
great answer aichoucha! not romantic but correct

About Allen's test:
Citation:
Allen's test, also Allen test, is used to test blood supply to the hand. It is performed prior to radial arterial blood sampling or cannulation. It is named for Edgar Van Nuys Allen.


Testing for collateral circulation to the hand by evaluating the patency of the radial and ulnar arteries.

1) The hand is elevated and the patient/person is asked to make a fist for about 30 seconds.


2) Pressure is applied over the ulnar and the radial arteries so as to occlude both of them.







3) Still elevated, the hand is then opened. It should appear blanched (pallor can be observed at the finger nails).


4) Ulnar pressure is released and the color should return in 7 seconds.
Inference: Ulnar artery supply to the hand is sufficient and it is safe to cannulate/prick the radial









If color does not return or returns after 7 seconds, then the ulnar artery supply to the hand is not sufficient and the radial artery therefore cannot be safely pricked/cannulated.



------
Anatomical basis:
The hand is normally supplied by blood from the ulnar and radial arteries. The arteries undergo anastomosis in the hand. Thus, if the blood supply from one of the arteries is cut off, the other artery can supply adequate blood to the hand. A minority of people lack this dual blood supply. (wiki)






Please check Nejm's video called Arterial Line placement, for a visual demonstartion..

thank you for your participation ;-)

Hi everybody.

Here is a definition and alternative words for lightheadedness:

"a vague sensation, giddiness, swimming or floating. Usually a psychiatric cause or contributor".

DASSS= Depressive/Anxiety/Somatoform d/o /Substance abuse/Stress, panic d/o, hyperventilation syndrome

Note: ~ 80% of mental health problems in primary care setting (hysteric faints, malingering, Munchausen syndrome)

Dont hesitate to add any comments.

Peace be with u.
