Gauze bandage is a common medical dressing made of gauze material. It is usually used to fix wound dressings, wrap limbs, etc. Gauze bandages are available in a variety of different specifications and sizes. Commonly used specifications are 2.5 cm, 5 cm, 7.5 cm, 10 cm, etc. According to different use needs, gauze bandages can be divided into many types. For example, they can be divided into two types: self-adhesive and non-self-adhesive according to stickiness, and can be divided into elastic and non-elastic according to elasticity.

When using gauze bandages, you need to pay attention to the following points:Cleaning and disinfection should be carried out first: Before using gauze bandage, the affected area should be cleaned and disinfected to avoid cross-infection. Choose the appropriate specification and size: Choose the appropriate specification and size of the gauze bandage according to the patient's actual condition to ensure its fixation effect and comfort. Properly control the tightness of the bandage: When bandaging, pay attention to the tightness of the bandage. It should not be too tight or too loose, otherwise the bandaging effect will be affected. Pay attention to observation: For patients after bandaging, it is necessary to frequently observe whether there is swelling, leakage and other abnormalities in the bandaged area, and adjust and replace the bandage in a timely manner. Gauze bandage is a common medical dressing that is easy to use and low-cost, but you need to pay attention to the usage specifications and precautions to ensure the bandaging effect and avoid cross-infection.

How to use gauze bandage

Prepare the required materials: gauze bandage, breathable dressing, etc. Clean and disinfect the wound, and remove dirt and impurities around the wound. Take the gauze bandage out of the package, align the bandage with the wound, and fix it near the wound (not too tight or too loose). Place the bandage around the wound, keeping it close to the skin but not compressing it. Wrap the bandage over the bandage, covering the first third of the bandage. Continue wrapping the bandage, covering two-thirds of the previous circle, until the wound is completely covered and a certain length of bandage is left. Wrap the remaining bandage back in the opposite direction to secure the entire dressing. Protect the wound by covering it with a breathable dressing. Here are some things to note: Make sure the wound is completely clean and disinfected before dressing it. Do not wrap too tightly or too loosely to avoid affecting blood circulation. Long-term bandaging will affect skin ventilation and blood circulation and should be changed regularly. If you have any discomfort or abnormality, please seek medical treatment in time.

Gauze bandage function

Fixed wound dressing: After surgery or trauma, the wound needs to be bandaged and fixed to prevent wound infection and bleeding. Gauze bandage can play a good fixing role.

Bandage limbs: In cases of fractures, sprains, etc., the limbs need to be immobilized. Gauze bandages can wrap the limbs to provide fixed support, reduce pain and shorten healing time. 

Compression to stop bleeding: In the case of heavy bleeding, gauze bandages can apply pressure through bandaging to reduce the amount of bleeding and achieve hemostasis.

Clean the affected area: When cleaning wounds and affected areas, you can use gauze bandages to wipe and clean them for the purpose of disinfection and cleaning.


Make sure the wound is adequately clean and disinfected to avoid infection. Do not wrap too tightly or too loosely. Too tight will hinder blood circulation, and too loose will cause the wrap to loosen. The bandage should cover the entire wound, leaving a certain length of bandage for securement. Long-term bandaging will affect skin ventilation and blood circulation, and the bandage should be changed once a day. If pain, swelling, fever, oozing, etc. occur, seek medical treatment in time. If you have a history of sensitivity or allergies, you should avoid using gauze bandages. Gauze bandages are not suitable for large-area burns or severe trauma, and should be treated by a doctor in time. Do not reuse gauze bandages that have been used to avoid cross-infection. Proper use of gauze bandages can effectively promote wound healing, but you also need to pay attention to some details to maximize its effect.
