Cohesive and adhesive bandages are ideal for protecting and facilitating the healing process of a cut, abrasion, blister, or other injury, especially one that requires a high level of compression and long-term adherence. Elastic cohesive and adhesive bandages protect injuries from friction, exposure, and further damage which may worsen the wound and consequently prolong the healing time.
To apply the bandage, ensure the wound is cleaned thoroughly to remove any debris or foreign bodies. Ensure the shape and size of the bandage is applicable to the area of the body that the bandage is being applied to. Place a dressing over the wound, and then apply the bandage with the adhesive pad over the wound. If a cohesive bandage is being used, it will not stick to the skin, and hence care must be taken to ensure the bandage adheres to itself whilst covering and protecting the wound. Take care not to touch the wound, as this may aggravate it. Changing the bandage and dressing daily is not necessary, as both cohesive and adhesive bandages are designed to retain their adherence capabilities over long periods of time. If the bandage gets wet or soiled, it should be replaced with a fresh bandage. Cohesive bandages are able to be removed and washed. If an adhesive bandage is removed, it cannot be re used again.
It is imperative that elastic cohesive and adhesive bandages are not used if the packaging or seal is compromised. Evidence of this may suggest tampering or loss of sterility. If one should come across bandages inside comprised packaging, the correct course of action is to dispose of it quickly and safely.
- It is important that adhesive bandages are not reused. Once used, the device is not fit to be salvaged for further used, as sterilization cannot be retained. Re-using bandages can result in infections being transmitted, and the bandage losing its adherence ability. Cohesive bandages are able to be removed and washed, however;
- Must prepare the bandages for use in a clean, sterile environment, absent of bodily fluids or other sources of contamination;
- Because this bandage is adhesive, a dressing should be laid over the wound first. Directly applying the adhesive bandage to the wound can result in further damage being inflicted upon the wound;
- Cohesive and adhesive bandages should be stored in a cool, dry location away from direct sunlight. Failure to do so may dry the bandage up, decreasing its healing and adherence properties;
- Promptly and safely dispose of any bandages that have touched a potentially contaminated surface;
- If bandages have blood or any other bodily substance on it, it must be handled as biohazard waste.
