First Aid Bandages

The terms ‘dressing’ and ‘bandage’ are often used synonymously. In fact, the term ‘dressing’ refers more correctly to the primary layer in contact with the wound. A bandage is a piece of material used either to covering wounds, to keep dressings in place, to applying pressure controlling bleeding, to support a medical device such as a splint, or on its own to provide support to the body. It can also be used to restrict a part of the body. The Sterile Eye pad Dressing is secured in place on the eye, with the use of a length of stretch bandage which can be wrapped around the head of the patient preventing the pad from slipping off. The Low Adherent Large Dressing pads are suitable for abrasions, superficial cuts and lightly exuding wounds, also suitable for burns treatment. Film surface prevents pad sticking to the wound surface therefore minimising trauma for the casualty upon removal. See the complete range of first aid products.
