PEARLS

These videos are not intended to be comprehensive instructional videos but rather to give specific tips about performing procedures without the supplies you may be accustomed to using.  For more thorough and complete procedural instruction, please use additional resources such as textbooks or other online videos.

Most procedures have two videos for training:

1. A step-by-step Instructional Video describing how to make procedural modifications with supplies available to you
2. A Demonstration Video of the modified procedure being performed

Each video has a link to the right of the title - use these links to save the file to your computer if you would like to have them available when you do not have an internet coeection.
