Bandaging

 

Bandages have three key uses: applying pressure to bleeding wounds; covering wounds and burns; and providing support and immobilization for broken bones, sprains, and strains. The three main types are triangular, Ace, and tubular.

Although bandaging is a basic procedure, at Akl Pharmacy we ensure to carry it correctly. Otherwise, it has the potential to cause considerable harm, for example by restricting movement or blood flow.

And when working with bandages, we always apply the following general principles:
• We work with the injured person, explaining what we are doing.
• We work in front of the injured person where possible and from the injured side if we can.
• We bandage firmly over bleeding and securely over broken bones, but not so tight as to compromise circulation below the site of the injury.
• When wrapping bandages around an injured person, we use the body’s natural hollows such as the knees, ankles, neck, and small of the back to slide the bandages gently into place.
• We check regularly to ensure that the bandage is still comfortable. We also check that the bandage remains firmly secured, particularly if the injured person has to move, as movement can loosen the bandage.
• We secure bandages with tape, clips, a bow, or a square knot.
• We make sure that bandages, especially knots, do not press into the skin. We place padding between the bandaging and the skin as necessary. The practice of ear piercing dates back to thousands of years ago. From jungle tribes to desert nomads to royalty, pierced ears were indicators of both beauty and social standing.
