The right hand continues to band  around the area. The number of rolls is determined as required, and the  end of the bandage is fixed with tape.

Spiral dressing

It is used for parts with a uniform circumference, such as arms and fingers. From  the distal end, the first ring was banded twice and the proximal end  was spirally wound at an angle of 30°. Each roll overlapped the previous  roll by 2/3 and the end tape was fixed. In  the absence of emergency bandages or temporary splints, the weekly  bandages do not cover each other and are called serpentine dressings.

Helical reflex bandage

For  peripheral areas, such as forearms, calves, thighs, etc., start with  two weeks of circular bandages, and then do spiral bandages, and then  use one thumb to hold down the center of the tape, and the other hand to  take the tape from that point. Fold down and cover over 1/3 or 2/3 of the previous week. Each reflex should be aligned in a straight line, but each reflex should not be in the wound and bone carina.

First, in the middle of the joint, two  rings are bandaged. The bandage is wound around the joint first, and  then the flexion is wound around the joint. The dorsal side of the limb  is wound around the flexion of the limb and then it is wound on the  upper part of the joint. The  "8" character was continuously wrapped up and down in the joints. Each  roll overlapped with the previous roll by 2/3. Finally, 2 rolls were  wrapped around the joint and the tape was fixed.

Back to dressing

For  the top of the head, the tip of the finger and the stump of the limb, a  series of right and left or front and back anti-return dressings, all  the parts to be covered are covered, and then the ring is wrapped twice.
