Triangular Bandage

Updated on July 22, 2016

Triangular Bandage

A triangular Bandage is a piece of clothing material that can be utilized in an emergency. Among all the bandages, it practically is the most readily available since you can convert any clothing material into a triangular bandage in the event of an emergency.

Among the many purposes of the triangular bandages are the following:

  • to hold the dressing in place
  • to prevent infection
  • for direct pressure
  • for armsling
  • to hold splints together

Types of Bandages

There are different types of bandages. These can be applied to different areas. Some of them are utilized for specific reasons. Some of these are the following:

  • Elastic Bandage
  • Roller Bandage
  • Self Adhering Roller Bandage
  • Roller Bandage
  • Gauze Rollers
  • Adhesive Tapes
  • Triangular Bandage

From among the different types of bandages available, the triangular bandage is widely use considering that these type of bandages can easily be secured out of any clothing material. May it be at home, or in the office or practically anywhere.

If you can recall during the scouting days, our scarf was in a form of a triangle. This is because our scarf has a double purpose. It can also be utlized as a bandage.

The different types of bandages above are of course very useful. However, this could not be available all the time considering that an accident or emergency may happen anytime even on the most unexpected places. This is therefore the reason why the triangular bandages are the most popular among them.

Aside from its availability, the triangular bandages can be applied to almost all areas. From head to foot, you can always maneuver the bandage in such a way that it can be useful.

There is also no problem in so far as sizes considering that the triangular bandage can easily be folded into differents sizes in order to apply to different areas of the body. May the patient be an adult a child or an infant, triangular bandages can always be applied.

Watch out for my hubs on the different applications of the triangular bandages.

      Hi DDE, thanks for the appreciation and for the comment. I believe that this is also important to know. That is why this knowledge is even incorporated during scouting days.
