before it makes contact with the ring.
To make contact between the rotating blade and the ring, use ONLY GENTLE

It is often the case that you can remove the ring after a single cut
because the cut releases a tension in the ring, and the ring spreads apart

the opposite side of the ring.
Lift the ring off the patient's finger.
Wear protective eyewear and prevent particles from entering the nose and
mouth with a mask.
