Conforming stretch gauze that is a highly flexible bandage useful for binding large wounds or wounds in highly contoured body areas. Useful when the healthcare professional does not want to restrict the patient’s range of motion, but nevertheless needs to securely protect and bind the injury.
Conforming stretch gauze is also useful as a secondary bandage that secures a primary bandage in place and protect the wound from invasion by foreign objects and especially by bacteria. Gauze is also useful when a small amount of compression is needed. Gauze dressings are also porous so that air can circulate freely around the wound. They also offer the advantage of not interfering with blood circulation, which allows healing to progress undisturbed.
