Is there a research article assessing the risk of sticking needles through Burkas in cultures that will not take off their clothing because of their beliefs? I've heard that one exists but cannot find it.
I have never seen an article about it but I've been a nurse for 50 yrs and the risk of infection doing that has got to be high. When I was a student nurse, we cultured peoples clothing for microbiology class, and we grew some really nasty bacteria on them. You can't cleanse the clothing or the skin so it would have to increase the risk of infection. Plus you can't see where you're sticking. That could be a really big problem depending on the med you're giving.
I know soldiers during WWII used morphine syrettes, often through clothing but that was usually after a traumatic injury when infection from the needle was the least of concerns. I'm not even sure where you could find information like that Seems strange they cant bare a small patch of skin for an injection, doesnt it?
