Use of Gauze Bandage Roll

What are gauze rolls used for?

Gauze is now used for many different things, including gauze pads and bandage for medical purposes.


Gauze bandages are common and very versatile thin, woven, and breathable fabricbandages that can be used to secure a dressing in place, or may be placed directly over a wound to keep it clean while allowing air to penetrate to improve the healing process.


Rolling it around a limb or abdomen will also help as a means of fixing the mediical dressing. Non-sterile gauze rolls could be used as a primary dressing for light wounds, using an anti-biotic ointment, but are primarily used as a secondary wound dressing to absorb any exudate that makes it through the first layer.
