Tie-over bandage: Photo 4


Photo 4: The tie-over bandage is a simple, inexpensive, versatile bandage that is especially useful for covering areas that are otherwise challenging, such as the shoulder, neck, trunk, hip, inguinal region, perineum and caudal thigh.

Tie-over bandages can be used to hold a variety of primary dressings in place. The most common primary dressings include wet-to-dry dressings and nonadherent dressings. Wet-to-dry dressings typically include saline-soaked (isotonic or hypertonic) gauze sponges or laparotomy pads.

Nonadherent dressings usually consist of Telfa or Vaseline-impregnated gauze. The protective layer of the tie-over bandage should consist of a layer of sterile gauze sponges, towels or laparotomy pads. A water-resistant paper surgical drape can be cut to size and placed over the protective layer to prevent contamination if desired.
