cleaning with isopropyl alcohol x3

My comment:

ROH is a recognised abbreviation for alcohol...quite right. An invasive procdure such as deployment of a locl anaesthetic, say lidocaine, through the skin should generally be preceded by cleansing with a wipe (eg a Steret or an Alcowipe).

personaal experience.

disinfection ROH x 3

My comment:

i.e. preparation of skin with alcohol prior to infiltration: it serves to prevent infections due to bacteria on the skin

[here] "disinfection with/by alcohol three times" --> sterility/asepsis

ROH = chemical formula for alcohol

My comment:

Not one of my fields of expertise, but the entire alcohol detox process seems to be carried out in 3 steps.
