Simon Carley (2013), on how to remove a ring without cutting it. He does provide a few word of guidance if you are planning this route of ring removal:
- Do not attempt this method if there is a wound to the finger;
- Compression only works on soft tissue injuries;
- Try this at your own risk, have an alternate means of removing the ring;
- This will likely inflict some degree of pain on the patient, have an alternate removal plan available.
