In hospitals and other medical environments, why do doctors choose to use medical elastic bandages
or ordinary bandages according to different situations? What are the differences between the two?
Ordinary bandages are fixed bandages with certain elasticity and are medical supplies; there are 3 differences between ordinary medical bandages and elastic bandages:
1. Elastic bandage is soft in texture and high in elasticity;
2. Elastic bandage has good air permeability;
3. Ordinary medical bandages are mainly used for gauze bandages, which are mainly used for wound dressing and fixation;
Elastic bandages are mainly used for retention and bandaging of patients with varicose veins of the lower extremities and orthopedics to improve blood circulation and prevent swelling of the limbs. It can also replace the multi-head abdominal band after surgery, and is used for compression bandaging of different parts of the human body or general wound bandaging.
Strictly speaking, the difference between ordinary medical bandages and medical elastic bandages is not very big. In terms of usage, elastic bandages can also be used as ordinary medical cotton gauze bandages, but gauze bandages generally cannot be used as elastic bandages.
When choosing a medical bandage, pay attention to the appearance of the product. Never choose a product with contamination or defects. Pay attention to the product's shelf life. If the medical bandage is used for wound dressing, be careful not to directly touch the wound. It should be isolated with a dressing product, which is really good for the wound.
