Friends in Simulation:

Does anyone have a wonderful way to moulage normal or delayed capillary refill that they can share?

I haven't found a way to do this. What I have done in put a small piece of paper tape (fingernail sized) on the mannequin with the cap refill result (i.e., <3, >3). The student does have to actually look at the fingernail to find the result. Using paper tape and keeping it fingernail shape/size, it is actually quite hidden unless they look!

Hope this helps!
