Bandaging a Limb
It may be necessary, under certain conditions, to bandage the limb, especially if one has to make a journey. By applying a roller bandage snugly about a sprained ankle, for instance, one may travel in comparative comfort for several miles. Of course, he will pay the penalty afterwards, but I am speaking now of cases where it is imperative that a man travel.
In applying any bandage be sure that it has no wrinkles in it. It must be laid perfectly smooth and drawn reasonably tight. A loose bandage or one that is placed unevenly is worse than useless.
