A McKesson Dutex 2-Ply Cotton Bandage Roll provides moisture-wicking dressing retention simply and cheaply. Sometimes, there are situations where a patient needs a bandage for a wound. However, they can't have a bandage with adhesive. Either their wound is too large, their skin is too sensitive, or they have some kind of aversion to materials in a self-adherent bandage. In these situations, you need to use a retention dressing, something to hold down the primary dressing without the use of adhesives, regardless of wound size. A Mckesson Dutex 2-Ply Bandage typically cost half as much as elastic bandages of comparable lengths and widths so it can go home with patients with lowered overhead costs. McKesson Cotton Bandages consist of soft 2-ply woven cotton layers, ideal for secondary dressings for a product like McKesson Hydrocolloid Dressings. These bandages also have a bit of stretch to them to allow for comfortable fitting and light compression. Plus, these dressings are single-use products, reducing costs on laundering.
How to Apply Rolled Bandages
- Unwrap Old Bandage and Check Wound for Complications
- If Necessary, Clean Wound with a product like McKesson Dermal Wound Cleanser and Allow to Dry
- Keep Rolled Part of Bandage Above Injury and Unrolled Below Injury
- Wrap Twice Around Injury and Hold in Place
- Wrap Up Limb Covering 1/3 to 2/3 of Previous Layer
- Secure Bandage at the End
Traditional Wound Dressings
Traditional wound dressings include gauze, lint, plaster, cotton wool dressings to protect wounds from contaminating materials. These dressings have both sterile and non-sterile options and are used for absorbing fluids and exudates from open wounds. This means that these dressings need to be changed frequently. If used in wound absorption, they can be less cost-effective in situations where drainage is greater. Additionally, these dressings tend to adhere to wounds, making removal uncomfortable for patients. This is why these bandages have shifted primarily to retention rather than absorption. Sometimes these dressings are impregnated with additional materials like paraffin.
