Bandage dressing method
- Aug 16, 2018 -

The wound is wrapped with a bandage to fix the gauze covering the wound, to fix the fracture or contusion, and to have the effect of stopping bleeding and protecting the affected area.

Operation method 1. Ring method: This method is mostly used for wrists and parts with equal limb thickness. The bandages are first wound in a loop. The first circle is slightly inclined; the second and third rings are ring-shaped, and the first circle is bent at a corner to be pressed into the annular ring. Finally, the tail is fixed with a paste, or the tail can be cut into two ends. And then knotted.

2. Serpentine method: This method is mostly used for the fixation of splints. First, wrap the bandage a few times in a circular motion. Wrap or wrap around the width of the bandage.

3. Spiral method; this method is mostly used for the same thickness of limbs. First, wind a few turns in a circular motion. One-third or two-thirds of the front ring is spirally wrapped around each circle.

4. Spiral reflex method: This method applies the thickness of the limbs. First wrapped in a ring method. To be wrapped around the thickening, fold each bandage back and cover one third or two thirds of the front ring. According to this, it is wound up from the bottom up.


1. The essentials of bandages are not too tight or too loose. Otherwise it will cause poor blood circulation or loose to hold the gauze. If you have no experience, take a bandage and see if the body is cold or not.

2. When knotting, don't be above the wound, and don't be behind the body, lest you feel uncomfortable while sleeping.

3. In the absence of a bandage and must be first aid, towels, handkerchiefs, sheets (tear into narrow strips), long nylon socks, etc. can be used instead of bandages.
