Luscious Lips

Posted by Clark Venable on 10/16/2004

For longer general anesthetics, anesthesiologists often place a lubricant on the eyes before taping them closed. We tape them closed to avoid corneal abrasions and prevent drying. Lacrilube is the product most commonly used and it contains white soft paraffin, liquid paraffin and lanolin alcohols. Here's the hint: it works great as a lip balm, too! Just a dab on the lips and your patients will roll into the recovery room with shiny, luscious smackers and you'll earn yourself five easy style points, too.
