When we have an accident, it is easy to cause physical injury. If it is a minor injury and the wound is relatively small, we can use band-aids, alcohol or Iodophor for simple disinfection and dressing. But if our wound area is relatively large, we need debridement and then dress with medical gauze fabric.
Now let Winner introduce how to use medical gauze fabric to dress the wound for you:
This method is mostly used in the wrist and limb parts with equal thickness. Firstly, overlap and wind the medical gauze fabric in a loop. The first circle is slightly oblique. The second and third circles are made into a ring, and an inclined angle of the first ring is pressed into the ring. Finally, the belt tail is fixed with adhesive paste, or the belt tail can be cut into two heads, and then knotted.
This method is mostly used for limb parts with the same thickness. First, wind several circles according to the ring dressing. Wrap each circle up to cover one-third or two-thirds of the front circle in a spiral shape.
Wind the bandage from bottom to top above and below the joint bending. Then it is wound back and forth in an 8-shape from top to bottom.
This method is mostly used for the head and amputated limb. The medical gauze fabric has been folded back and forth many times. The first circle usually starts from the center, and then each circle is left and then right until the wound is completely wrapped. Wind as a ring to fix the folded ends. This method often requires an assistant to press the folding end of the medical gauze fabric when folding back. The tightness should be moderate.
In addition, we also need to pay attention to the fact that the wound must be cleaned before dressing, and alcohol can be used for disinfection. The key to wrap medical gauze fabric is not to be too tight or too loose. Otherwise, it will cause poor blood circulation or loose gauze. If you are inexperienced, see if the distal end of the body becomes cold and swollen after dressing.
The above is the method of wound dressing with medical gauze fabric summarized by Winner for you. If you are interested in our medical gauze fabric, you can consult us online and we will provide you with high-quality services!
