The Convatec SurePress High Compression Bandage is a high compressive band used for many medical needs. Your caretaker may use a high compressive band for wounds that require a tight wrap for a fitted wound such as those that are packed.
The SurePress 4 Inches x 3.2 Yards Compression Band (Convatec 650947) is able to be wrapped around the wound or infected area numerous times to get that tight fitment and benefit from its intended purpose. The unna boot band is lined with a visual indicator for the entire length of the band so you can see the amount of stretching being achieved when applying the wrap. It is important to follow proper protocol when applying the compression band. If your nurse or caretaker has given you the option to apply the bandage on your own at home, make sure you clean the wound or infected area as per guidance from your medical professional - most recommendations may include for you to use a cleanser such as the SafeWash Sterile Saline Wound Cleanser to wash away bacteria.
Once you have the band wrapped around the wounded area, you can maintain a comfortable high compression band setting for up to 7 days before needing to be readjusted, most wound dressings can last this long so it is likely your nurse will replace the wound dressing and tighten your band right back up. If your band gets dirty, it can be washed and reused. The durable elasticity of the compression band can withstand up to about 20 washing cycles before it loses its elasticity.
The great benefit of the high compression band is the rated ability to be used for stages of venous leg ulcers; reducing the need of buying specialized compression bandages.
