How to make a bandage

  1. Make the first round slightly oblique; then bend the end that protrudes under the second turn (Figure 1A).
  2. Wrap the spiral bandage around the limb, making sure that each turn overlaps the previous one by 2/3 of its width (Figure 2).
  3. Complete the operation by cutting the last stretch of bandage for the length so as to obtain two ends, to be stopped with a double knot or by fixing the ends with two strips of plaster (Figure 3).

For dressings it is advisable to use sterile gauze, stored individually in sealed packages; these, if intact, guarantee their sterility for the period indicated on the label. The sterile gauze must be touched as little as possible, exclusively at the edges and always with hands thoroughly washed with soap and water. In emergency situations, pieces of clean cloth can be used instead of sterile gauze.

On the contrary, it is necessary to avoid the use of cotton wool in direct contact with the wound, to prevent its fibers from being harnessed in the clot: this would favor the onset of infections.
