How to Cauterize Using Silver Nitrate Stick?

Answer

To cauterize using silver nitrate stick, you will require silver nitrate stick (applicator stick) made up of 75% silver nitrate and the remaining percentage (25%) being for potassium nitrate. As the silver nitrate and water in the blood come into contact, the silver nitrate solubilizes forming nitric acid which brings about the burn (cautery) effect.
