What are the methods of using bandages?

Ring bandaging

It is used for small or cylindrical parts of the limbs, such as hands, feet, wrists and forehead. It is also used at the beginning of various dressings. Roll the bandage upwards, hold it with your right hand, unfold the bandage about 8cm, fix the head end of the bandage with your left thumb, and wrap the part in a continuous ring with your right hand. The number of rolls depends on your needs. Use a twisted cloth to fix the end of the bandage.

Spiral dressing

Used for parts with approximately equal circumferences, such as upper arms, fingers, etc. From the distal end, wrap the two rolls in a circular ring, and then spirally wind at a 30° angle toward the proximal end. Each roll overlaps the previous roll by 2/3, and the end tape is fixed. In the absence of bandages or temporary fixation of splints, the bandages do not cover each other every week, which is called snake bandaging.

Spiral reflex bandaging

Used on parts with different circumferences, such as forearms, calves, thighs, etc., start with two rounds of circular bandaging, then spiral bandaging, and then press the middle of the tape with one thumb, and reverse the tape from that point with the other hand Fold down to cover 1/3 or 2/3 of the previous week. Each reflex must be neatly arranged in a straight line, but each reflex should not be at the wound and bone protuberance.

"8" shape bandaging method

It is used for bandaging and fixing clavicle fractures in the shoulder, elbow, wrist, ankle, and other joints. Take the elbow joint as an example. First, wrap 2 rolls in the middle of the joint. The bandage is first wound above the joint, then under the joint through the flexion side, and then through the back of the limb to the flexion side of the limb and then over the joint. Wrap up and down the joints continuously in the shape of "8", each roll overlaps the previous roll by 2/3, and finally wrap 2 rolls above the joint in a ring shape, fixed with tape

Reverse bandaging

For the top of the head, finger ends and limb stumps, it is a series of left-right or front-to-back bandaging. After all the bandaged parts are covered, make a ring bandage for two more weeks).

6. Master the bandage roll when dressing to avoid falling. The bandage should be rolled and placed flat on the bandaged area.
