In the supportive treatment of varicose veins, it is also very important to tie the elastic bandage properly. If the operation method of the elastic bandage is wrong, not only will it not be able to treat the varicose veins very well, it will continue to cause some unnecessary side effects. So how to use elastic bandage correctly?
1. Choose gauze with different total widths according to different positions. Generally, new elastic bandages (width 7.5X450cm) are used for upper limbs, medium-sized elastic bandages (width 10X450cm) are used for knees, and small elastic bandages (wide) are used for knees. 15*450cm); The way of strapping depends on the purpose of application. The elastic bandage used to tie the circulatory system should have a venous working pressure that is compatible with the increase, and the working pressure must not be too high to limit the venous return or aortic blood supply as the standard.
2. After the elastic bandage is tied, it must be leveled without wrinkles, especially at the joints. For example, after the kneecap is moved, the gauze is easy to wrinkle, causing the popliteal socket to be stressed, like a tourniquet. The level of tightness and looseness of the coil should be moderate, which should be based on personal comfort after strapping. Bandage bandages should be carried out every morning before getting up. If the patient has woken up, the patient should be placed in bed again, and the body should be stretched to drain the venous blood, and then banded.
3. When strapping, you need to start from the foot, slowly coil up, and strap it to the required aspect ratio. In the whole process of strapping, the adjacent double-layer elastic bandage should be overlapped two-thirds up and down, otherwise it is not easy to level after strapping, and go to sleep every night.
4. During the period of using elastic bandages, you should observe the color of the body skin and the swelling of the affected side every day to facilitate the observation of its actual effects. Patients with conservative treatment of varicose veins of the lower extremities should apply elastic bandages daily for a long period of time; patients with deep vein thrombosis must apply elastic bandages regardless of the limited active period or just after the beginning of activities, at least 3 months, or even for life Application to maintain the function of the superficial vein and the heart valve of the traffic vein, reduce or clear the disease.
