[IP] local anesthesia for inserting sets

1. Roxicaine Spray (numbs in 30-45 mins)

2. Ethyl Chloride (numbs immediately--insert set right away)

3. Ela-Max (numbs in 30 mins)

4. EMLA (numbs in 45-60 mins) --we use EMLA and it is great but it can be a
long wait when a set NEEDS to be changed...

Just a FYI post!

1, 3 and 4 are allergens. try not to use them. 2 freezes the skin. literally
as in ice. but works really well. YMMV. spot
