What is a Compression Bandage?

A compression bandage applies pressure to a specific area of the body in order to reduce swelling, inflammation, and pain. It provides compression and support to various body parts for quick healing. The compression provided by the bandage helps to reduce the amount of fluid that accumulates in the affected area by increasing pressure on the blood vessels and lymphatic vessels. This can help to reduce swelling and promote healing. They also provide compression for individuals with lymphedema or some other venous disorder. These compression wraps are also known as elastic bandages and are used extensively in hospitals and medical care facilities. Elastic Compression Bandages are designed to stretch and conform to the body. They are usually wrapped tightly around the affected area and are held in place with clips or Velcro fastenings.

Some Do's and Don'ts

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How long should you keep a compression bandage on?

    On average, these bandages are kept on for about 48-72 hrs. It is recommended to contact a family physician for further instructions.

  2. Should I keep a stretchable bandage on overnight?

    Please remove the pressure bandage wrap at night while sleeping for the best results. If the doctor has advised against it, it is mandatory to make sure the bandage provides a snug fit and does not restrict blood flow.

  3. How does compression help swelling?

    Applying pressure to an injury helps reduce swelling by restricting the flow of blood and other fluids.

  4. What to keep in mind while using a compression dressing?

    The bandage should be snug, but it must not cut off circulation. If the bandage is wrapped around your foot or ankle, check your toes, or if it's around your wrist, check your fingers. If they become purplish or blue, cool to the touch, or numb or tingly, then the wrap is too tight and should be loosened. Make sure to loosen the wrap at night before bedtime or remove it as prescribed.
