It’s happening more & more: though body modification has been practiced for thousands of years, seemingly only recently has it become an “epidemic,” especially among teens & young adults.  This presentation is given by an ER/transport nurse who has gained insights from piercers and tattoo artists around the world as to “what we really want to know” regarding body modification and its implications for emergency care.  Through real-life case studies, answers to questions involving airway management, resuscitation, trauma care, and obstetrics will be addressed.
