how to remove penis from zipper?

how to remove penis from zipper?

Entrapment of the penile foreskin in a zipper occurs  more often . 

 two  methods:

The Chomp and Squeeze Method:

The first method was reported in Indian Paediatrics  It involves using a wire-cutter or pair of heavy duty trauma scissors to make two transverse cuts along the margin of the zipper (figure 1)
 and then attaching a pair of pliers carefully over the faceplate of the zip fastener, and compressing firmly(figure 2).

 The pliers squeeze open the two faceplates “loosening the interdigitation of the teeth” allowing the prepuce to fall away. Hopefully still connected to the rest of the penis.

the Screw-This Method:

Reported in Pediatric Emergency Care. this method involves a common flat-head screwdriver inserted between the outer and inner faceplates of the zipper. The prepuce is usually only trapped on one side of the zipper so insert the screwdriver in the opposite side. The screwdriver is then twisted firmly to open up the faceplates and… Free Willy.

What Are Growing Pains?

Growing pains aren't a disease. Usually they happen when kids are between the ages of 3 and 5 or 8 and 12. Doctors don't believe that growing actually causes pain, but growing pains stop when kids stop growing. By the teen years, most kids don't get growing pains anymore.

Kids get growing pains in their legs. Most of the time they hurt in the front of the thighs (the upper part of your legs), in the calves (the back part of your legs below your knees), or behind the knees. Usually, both legs hurt.

Growing pains often start to ache right before bedtime. Sometimes you go to bed without any pain, but you might wake up in the middle of the night with your legs hurting. The best news about growing pains is that they go away by morning.

What Causes Growing Pains?

Growing pains don't hurt around the bones or joints (the flexible parts that connect bones and let them move) — only in the muscles. For this reason, some doctors believe that kids might get growing pains because they've tired out their muscles. When you run, climb, or jump a lot during the day, you might have aches and pains in your legs at night.

What Can I Do to Feel Better?

Your parent can help your growing pains feel better by giving you an over-the-counter pain medicine like acetaminophen or ibuprofen. Kids should not take aspirin because it can cause a rare but serious illness called Reye syndrome.

Here are three other things that might help you feel better:

1.placing a heating pad on the spot where your legs hurt

2.stretching your legs like you do in gym class

3.having your parent massage your legs

When to Go to the Doctor

If you have a fever, you're limping when you walk, or your leg looks red or is swollen (puffed up), your parent should take you to the doctor. Growing pains should not keep you from running, playing, and doing what you normally do. If the pain is bothering you during the day, talk to your parent about it.

You might never feel any growing pains, but if you do, remember that before you know it, you will outgrow them!

“cheaper” and “painless” solution against the virus --

Pune’s Serum Institute of India (SII) launched its much awaited “cheaper” and “painless” solution against the virus -- a ready-to-sniff intra-nasal vaccine, Nasovac, on Wednesday across the country.

At the launch, Adar Poonawalla, owner and executive director, Serum Institute of India Ltd. stated, “The public’s fear at the height of the pandemic last year was a challenge for India’s healthcare sector.

"Right from the time we started work on the vaccine, we were clear that apart from developing indigenous capability for tackling pandemics, we wanted to provide a painless prevention option for the masses.

“We now have capabilities, in collaboration with global healthcare agencies, to respond with affordable preventive vaccines for pandemic healthcare emergencies anywhere around the world.”

A little about NasovacNasovac, meant for the H1N1 pandemic strain, is a nasal spray in powder form, which has to be reconstituted by adding water.

A single dose of 0.5ml of the vaccine is delivered directly to the nasal cavity
through a device fitted at the top of the syringe.

A quick spray in each nostril and the body develops antibodies to protect against the deadly virus for a period of over a year or even more.

According to experts, the nasal spray may prove to be effective as it takes the same respiratory route as the H1N1 virus. It has the efficiency to fight H1N1 infection even if small changes occur in the virus.

After vaccination, some negligible or very mild reactions may be experienced for two to three days.

Safety and efficacy assessedThe safety and efficacy of the vaccine was assessed through clinical trials on more than 300 human subjects in the country.

The vaccine has been approved by the Drug Controller of India (DCGI) and can be safely administered to any individual above three years.

However, SII is not recommending the vaccine for pregnant women and lactating mothers.
Dr Cyrus Poonawalla, chairman, SII stated, "Our recommendation is that it (Nasovac) should not be administered to pregnant and lactating women, besides children below three years.

"But the medical fraternity says this decision should be left to them. They think that if the women are in a high-risk area, they should be vaccinated. So we have no objection, but it is better that if these vaccines are not given to them.”

Economically pricedIn order to increase its commercial use among the masses, Nasovac is economically priced.

SII has set a sale target of 20-25 million doses in first year.
In addition, SII donated vaccines worth Rs 10 crore to various hospitals, NGOs, and the underprivileged.

Mansoor Ahmed, marketing director, SII, said, “The product will be available across the country in the next few days. It is priced at Rs. 158 per dose and available in the 5-vial pack for Rs. 790.
“As of now, we have the capacity to make 50 million doses. But this can be scaled up in the coming months to 150 million or even 200 million doses if needed. As of now, we are only concentrating on the Indian market and will address the export market later."
