I've never broken any bones before, so I don't know what setting them looks like. I'd like to find a video about setting a broken arm so I can write a scene where Sirius fixes Remus up, because you know, broken bones a regular occurrence, and my personal canon often includes Sirius learning how to do it. Not becoming a mediwizard or anything, but fixing recurring injuries?
I looked on youtube, and the problem isn't that it isn't there, but there's a zillion videos of bones being
broken, pins being pulled out, and casts coming off. Who commemorates this kind of stuff? Normally I have a pretty strong stomach, but after the second sensationalist bone-in-the-action-of-breaking video I tried to weed through in hopes of finding a bone being actually set, I nearly had to make a run for the toilet to commune with the porcelain god.
It's not that I'm being lazy and asking you all to do my research for me, but that the material I'm turning up along the way is making me just a little bit queasy. I have a feeling that the type of videos I'm looking for might be hard to find because putting how-to medical information in the hands of amateurs could be asking for a lawsuit. I'm kinda stuck here, and would like to avoid nightmares, if possible.
I found the University of Ottawa's page
about applying casts, but it features non-injured models, and doesn't cover how one makes sure the bone heals straight.
So... if any of you know where I might find such a video, could you kindly point me in the right direction? I'd normally take this sort of question to little_details
(and I did find their broken+bones
tag, which was informative), but this isn't a case of "can't find, exhausted all other options" yet, it's just me wimping out.
