Default I need a little help, Tube stuck on finger

I swear I am not not making this up.

My wife and kids are on their way home from CPR class, and my 14 year old has managed to get the breathing tube stuck on her pinky. about three inches long, hard plastic.


Any thoughts on how I get this thing off?

Plan in starting with olive oil and syringe (no needle -use for fiberglass).

Lol.... sorry. Haven’t you ever gotten a ring stuck on your finger? Cold water for a minute and then lots of dish detergent. Should come right off.

This is what I am thinking, but I want to line up a couple options for when they get home. From the initial text from my wife (sans picture) was that she got it stuck in the CPR dummy. I really wanted no part of that one.

This is way different than a ring, a ring you have access to both sides and there are tricks:

As others have said, ice cold water for 3-5 minutes first, then a syringe with dish soap and try to twist while your doing it second, or immediately after cold water.

The garden hose is a great idea. tape it together really well and turn it on.

Ice pack around her hand and a oxygen/acetalyne torch on the breathing tube. Easy peasy.

Squeeze with plyers. Try to crack it without crushing it. Using wire cutters make two cuts at the open end. Best bet to split it long ways.

You can probably even get by with oxygen and propane vs acetylene. Either that or tie one hand to the back porch, tie the tube that is stuck to your hitch, should come right off.

Dish soap
Ice it

Hand hacksaw cut through most of it then try and crack that piece off. Start at the open end a little at a time.

Is it off???...........A flat File along the length of the tube would eventually get the sidewall thin enough to tear it open...... File along the side of the finger so you will not accidentally scrape the Knuckle....... Post up Rescue photos in case one of us do the same ...............................Oh, nevermind... Just Post the photos,,,,,,lol
