Hand Surgeons Urge Parents to Review Hand Safety Tips Before Carving Pumpkins this Halloween
Date:10/21/2008

out the other side of the pumpkin where a hand may be holding it steady.

4. Use a Pumpkin Carving Kit

According to research done by hand surgeons, pumpkin carving saws require less force to pierce the pumpkins than a serrated or a plain kitchen knife. Therefore, the carving saws may be less likely to cause injury(1). Injuries may still occur so families must exercise caution with any carving tool.

5. Use a Pumpkin Decorating Kit

The safest option is pumpkin painting or decorating. Kids can express their creativity with paint and other items that can be glued or attached to the pumpkin.

If an Injury Occurs

If an injury occurs such as a cut on the finger or hand, applying pressure to the wound with a clean cloth will often stop the bleeding. If continuous pressure does not slow or stop the bleeding after 15 minutes, or if the sensation, color or function of the finger(s) is otherwise diminished, an emergency room visit may be required.

For More Information

To identify a local hand surgeon spokesperson in your market, please call Jennifer Gremmels, ASSH, at 847-384-1437. Please also visit http://www.handcare.org for pumpkin safety photos and more information on hand safety.

About Hand Surgeons

Hand surgeons have received specialized additional training in the treatment of hand problems in addition to their board certified specialty training in orthopedic surgery, plastic surgery, or general surgery. To become members of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand, hand surgeons must have completed a full year of such additional training and must pass a rigorous certifying examination.

Many hand surgeons also have expertise with problems of the elbow, arm, and shoulder. Some hand surgeons treat only children, some treat only adults, and some treat both. Common problems treated include carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, wrist pain, sports
