Excerpt: ...the roll of bandage in the right hand and turn this hand in the direction taken by the hands of a clock, unrolling the bandage and turning it around the part to be enclosed at the same time. Make the first turn with the right hand, after which the left hand, being freed by the overlapping, may alternate with it. Fia. 73--Method of applying Roller Bandage spirally. Fig. 74--Method of reversing or folding back turns of the spiral Boiler Bandage. The simplest form of application of a roller bandage is a direct circular turn around the part beginning at the end of the limb or part. Where the part is larger at one end than the other, for example, the forearm from the wrist to the elbow, circular turns would not lie smoothly. In such case begin at the small end, making a few turns each over the other, and then move the turns up the limb spirally, making the spirals overlap each other about one-third their width. When the bandage begins to pucker, turn the edge so as to make an inverted V and carry around the part overlapping the preceding turn, and so on repeating the process until the whole part is covered. (See Figs. 73 and 74). At joints--elbow, kni'e. ankle--roller bandage may bo applied, so as to form a figure 8, the bend of the joiut forms the crossing part or middle'of such a figure 8, with loops above and below the joint. In applying a roller bandage care must be used as to the amount of tension to be employed. The surgeons use the expressions " tight," " moderately tight" and "loose." These grades may be estinu ed by applying a bandage upon one's own person. A tight bandage around the hand would cause it to throb; a moderately tight bandage around the fingers would give the support of a comfortable fitting glove; more
