What is an Israeli compression bandage?
To stop a hemorrhage in a simple and effective way, the use of an Israeli compression bandage can be very useful.
The Israeli compression bandage combines a non-adherent compress (pad) on an elastic bandage with a tightening pressure applicator (ring) and a closing clip (closure bar). It is also a sterile single-use product, which is also easy to handle. It can be placed with just one hand.
Steps to apply an Israeli compression bandage
Step 1: Put on the gloves and place the pad on the wound in such a way the pressure applicator (pressure ring) is offset of the side of the wound, then wrap one revolution of the bandage around of the limb.
Step 2: Twist the bandage and pass it through the pressure ring.
Step 3: Tight the bandage to apply pressure and begin wrapping in the opposite direction by covering the pressure ring.
Step 4: Once you complete the wrap, insert one side of the closure bar in 1 or 2 fabric folds to secure the wrap.
