    Another question, if you don't mind:

    For teeth brushing skill (your skill #8), the book isn't clear on why 2 pairs of gloves are necessary.
    In your guide, you say to remove the gloves after drying the mouth, throw them in the trash, and then reapply gloves before basin and hand washing.

    I don't understand why you need a new pair of gloves just to wash the basin.

    Can you help clarify this?

    Oh, also... are they always people (students?) acting as the patient, or is there sometimes a manequin?

    For Brush Resident's Dentures skill, would you really have to remove the dentures? As I understand it (?), the resident is played by a fellow student, right? In this case, we will not be able to remove any dentures. Isn't the skill for Red Cross really going to involve just brushing a set of dentures? (This is all so confusing! I just don't know what to expect in this test.)
