French term or phrase: Franchissement / ressaut ?????????
Le franchissement se traduit par un ressaut souvent bien perçu et l'aiguille n'est plus rejetée lorsqu'elle est lâchée.

This piece concerns the performing of nerve blocks. Having difficulty finding the correct words for both franchissement and ressaut.

Thanks for any info.

leapers & fall


Explanation:
ressaut means, \"projection; abrupt fall, dip; rise (in saddle).\"
franchissement looks like it comes from the verb franchir, which means, \"to leap, to jump over; to clear; to pass, to pass over or beyond, to overstep; to overcome, to surmount.\"
Perhaps it\'s leapers(franchissement) who fall (ressaut)

penetration... jump...


Explanation:
I assume this is talking about inserting a needle into a vein, in which case: "penetration is indicated by an often marked jump OR rebound OR recoil (or something along those lines...) [of the needle], and the needle is no longer pushed out when released..."

I'm NOT a medical expert, but this is the sense I get from it, hope you can make somehting from this.
