Gauze, Roller Bandages are made from cloth specially woven for the purpose and can be obtained at any drug store.
These bandages are very absorbent, soft, and at the same time firm and strong. They are intended to be used as a direct covering for the wound, and where their absorbency is useful to hold and retain wound discharges. They are also useful in binding and holding other dressings and for the application of solutions, lotions, etc., to the wound. The gauze bandages are wrapped separately, thoroughly sterilized and sealed. They can be applied without danger of infection.
Where a stronger bandage is required, or one for an outer covering, either the ribbon roller bandage or the triangular bandage should be applied.
Cotton Roller Bandages. These are ribbon like strips of cotton cloth, wound into a roll like tape. They are strong and may therefore be used for binding up injuries in all parts of the body. (See page 674.)
