One of the most popular first aid supplies found in almost any home is dressings – bandages, cotton wool, adhesive plasters, etc. At home, they are most often used to stop bleeding, but in general, the scope of their application is wider: dressings are needed during and after surgical operations, when working with the wound surface (draining wounds and protecting them from infection), to carry out various dressings, when fixing damaged parts of the body, etc.
Among the most commonly used dressings are medical bandages, gauze, napkins, cotton wool, plasters, etc. At the same time, depending on the area of application, the bandages can be either gauze or plaster – in traumatology, for long-term wearing when immobilizing an injured limb or a fracture zone. Medical gauze, as a material with high hygroscopicity, is used to make tampons, balls, napkins and bandages, which cleanse the wound surface from pus and blood. Sterile gauze, in turn, is relevant for minor burns – gauze is attached to the burn surface with a fixing or covering adhesive plaster.
A two-layer gauze of a certain size, produced in packages with different quantities, is called a gauze pad and is used to drain wounds from purulent contents or blood, as well as to disinfect the wound cavity or surface. Gauze wipes prevent direct contact of the wound with the bandage, and also prevent the wound from getting dirty.
The main characteristics of any dressing are wound safety, strong fixation, as well as sterility and elasticity. In addition, they must be air-permeable and microorganism-resistant. The dressing is performed strictly according to medical indications, but if the material is wet or dirty, then the dressing change is indicated. Before applying, you need to remove the old dressing material with clean hands, cleanse the skin of traces of drugs, treat the wound, then apply a bandage and fix it.
