[IPp] How do you aply Emla cream?

Hey all, just wanted to comment on how Katie applies her Emla cream before an insertion.  She uses Sils, so puts a long squirt of cream about the size of a baby pickle on a Tegaderm patch, puts that on her belly where she's going to insert, puts an IV3000 patch over that so the cream doesn't squirt out while she's waiting, then we wait for an hour.
