Keep it clean. If its just a local burn, you should be fine, depending on your body's healing time.

Next time, think, then act.

If it does get infected...do the same thing again and just hold it there for about 4 minutes. Then cleanly snap off the offending finger, and tie a string around it!. Then use it to scare young children and older ladies!! :ninja:

But thats just my advise, not actually what I would do myself!

Ions can run on Co2 as long as they have an anti-siphon. However, its not reccommended as just a TINY bit of liquit Co2 in there, and it'll fry the solenoid.
Back on topic. The best thing to do when I get burned is to just forget about it. Sometimes by friend would dip his finger in cold water and he says it felt better, but just pay attention to the game, and don't think about it, and you'll be fine. Besides, Co2 burns dont last a while.

Like stated before, dont pop the blister if one forms other than that you shouldnt need a doctor visit.

anti-syphon tubes can be added to the CO2 tanks to make them work with an ion...
I wouldnt wanna risk it especially if they dont know what there doin plus CO2 is expensive after a while

I just burned two of my fingers trying to connect my remote line to a now half empty 16 oz CO2 tank. I've been having problems with my remote line but this is the first time I've given myself frostbite. Some of the advice here is good, such as don't pop the blisters and see a doctor if it's a serious frostbite or if you get infected. But I wouldn't put it in water. The thing is you want to reheat the area slowly. Fast reheating will cause more tissue damage. I'd recommend using body heat to rewarm the area. When I burned my hand, I put my hand in a glove and bunched my fingers together. It's a slow and painful warming, but it helps reduce thermal damage.
Some people do recommend placing the fingers in cold to lukewarm water and warming them that way...it works too, but runs the risk of causing worse problems (such as reheating too quickly, or the water being too cold and causing more damage).
For small burns, it'll heal quickly, so suck it up and game on :angry:
