What is the design of an adhesive bandage?
An adhesive bandage is a small, flexible sheet of material which is sticky on one side, with a smaller, non-sticky, absorbent pad stuck to the sticky side. The pad is placed against the wound, and overlapping edges of the sticky material are smoothed down so they stick to the surrounding skin. Adhesive bandages are generally packaged in a sealed, sterile bag, with a backing covering the sticky side; the backing is removed as the bandage is applied. They come in a variety of sizes and shapes.
What is the function of an adhesive Coverlet bandage?
The adhesive bandage protects the wound and scab from friction, bacteria, damage, and dirt. Thus, the healing process of the body is less disturbed. Some of the dressings have antiseptic properties. An additional function is to hold the two cut ends of the skin together to make the healing process faster.
Are there any allergies concerned?
There are a few common allergy concerns that may come with the use of adhesive bandages. The most common allergic reaction is that of the latex, which may cause further inflammation of the wound. Some allergies can also arise from the adhesives used on the bandage, which can cause redness and itchiness to sensitive skin. To avoid these allergies, bandages are produced using a variety of materials and adhesives.
How are adhesive Coverlet bandages applied?
First, the packaging of bandage need be removed, as well as the film coverings on the adhesive part of bandage. These bandages have a small piece of gauze centered in on the adhesive tape. The gauze pad should be placed directly over the wound. Once the wound is adequately covered with the pad, gently stretch the adhesive part of the bandage and attach it firmly to the skin surrounding the wound.
