Triangular Bandage – Non woven-Our highly adaptable triangular bandages can conform to various areas of the body to treat a variety of injuries. The multi-talented bandage can be modified into a variety of configurations to provide support and protection for dislocations, fractures and superficial wounds.
Made from flexible, breathable fabric, the triangular bandage can be implemented as a standard or elevated sling to support an arm, shoulder, wrist or hand, or even as a wrap-around bandage for a head injury. It can also be used to apply compression to bleeding wounds, immobilise the legs or ankles and provide additional support to secure a splint in place.
The tightly compacted triangular dressing can fit neatly into any first aid kit, with both non-woven and calico fabric available.
Triangular bandages can be used as large dressings, as slings to support a limb, or to secure a dressing in place.
If you are using a triangular bandage as a sling on an arm, you use it opened out. You should:
ask the person to hold their arm across their chest and support the arm while you work
put the bandage under the arm and around the back of the neck
put the other half of the bandage over the arm to meet at the shoulder and tie into a knot
tuck the loose ends of the bandage in at the elbow, or use a pin
If you are using a triangular bandage to support a lower limb or large dressing, fold it in half horizontally, so the point of the triangle touches the middle of the long edge. Then fold it in half again in the same direction to make a broad strip.
Facilitating quick and easy application, our versatile dressing comprises of a long conforming bandage to securely hold the dressing in place, with a highly absorbent wound pad - thicker than most standard dressing bandages.
Thicker wound pad than the standard (Steropax) dressings.
Perfect on severe wounds where heavy blood loss occurs.
