“Clawed by tiger” is not something you get much in the ER, and meeting the tiger never happens. However, Pre-R is a different game. I was called to visit someone whose bengal tiger punctured his face, and following the repair Vanessa, Max and I got to meet the cuddly assailant. Every day’s different.
As for the handling of puncture wounds, the buzz words are a combo of what you’d consider for lacerations and animal bites, with even greater fear for trapped foreign matter and infection.
