General Knowledge for Gauze Bandage

Gauze bandage (common gauze roller bandage) The most common type of bandage is the gauze bandage, a simple woven strip of material, or a woven strip of material with a Telfa absorbent barrier to prevent adhering to wounds.

Adhesive bandages aren't always large enough to cover a wound, which is why it's crucial to have gauze pads in a first aid kit. Gauze pads can be fashioned into a bandage or used to absorb blood. Gauze pads come in many sizes and each kit should include an assortment.

Secure the outer gauze with medical tape, unless it is self-adhesive. If you need to cover a large wound with gauze, unroll a piece of gauze wrap and lay it flat. Cover the wound with a gauze pad and then use a thumb to hold one edge of the wrap on the edge of the gauze pad.
