How to use medical bandages correctly?
The correct use of medical bandages is:
1. Put a cotton sleeve or cotton roll on the action pad of the bandage. In the thin and boney place, you can wrap more cotton sleeves or cotton rolls and wear protective gloves.
2. Unpack the bandage, take it out and place it in the water at 68-77 ° F, 20-25 ° C for 1-2 seconds, and gently squeeze the bandage to remove the excessive moisture contained in it.
3. The bandage needs to be wound into a spiral. Each band overlaps 1/2 or 1/3 of the bandage width. Tighten it but don't push too hard. At this time, the shaping will end. The polymer bandage should be fixed for 30 seconds at the end of the curing.
4. The polymer (orthopedic synthesis) bandage curing process takes about 3-5 minutes (depending on the bandaging time and temperature). After 20 minutes you can feel the support.
