If it works it works, who gives a shit if people are squeamish.

My thoughts exactly. I'm squeamish about being cut open too but if you need to look under the hood knock me out and go for it

I listened to a radio program on the subject, not only remove the dead tissue but they have something anti inflammatory in their saliva which prevents infections taking hold.

And most importantly, they remove only dead tissue. Even the world’s best surgeon with the best equipment would have to cut away chunks of healthy tissue to make sure they’d got it all, but these guys can minimise the “collateral damage”, reducing the need for skin grafts to close the wound.
