5 Things You Didn’t Know Surgeons Do With Your Body

#5. Surgery Can Be Way More Primitive Than You Think
You probably think of leeches as an old-timey medical anomaly. But after some plastic surgeries, reconstructed areas of the body get incompetent veins. The function of veins is to bring blood back to the heart, so if they’re not working, the arteries bring blood away from the heart and to the desired location, then the veins say fuck it and toss it wherever, like some lazy teenager home from school. The arteries don’t really have an “off” option, so blood piles up in that one spot, until the pressure of it kills all the cells it’s trying to bring nutrients and oxygen to. One way to alleviate this is bloodletting, and the best way we have to do that is to stick a handy medical-grade leech onto you.

Arrow, Seeing Red

Hey I’m looking for screencaps of the scene with Felicity and Oliver in “Seeing Red”/Season 2, where Oliver asks for Lidocaine and takes it from her and injects it himself and Felicity cringes…

And Super-Savvy peeps have it or can make it???
