How do you use a Gauze Sponge?
- Before touching a dressing or wound, wash your hands and put on disposable, non-latex gloves.
- Next, check your sponge and make sure the pad covers beyond the edge of the wound.
- Then hold the pad by the edges and place it directly on top of the wound.
- Be careful to never touch the part of the pad that will be in contact with the wound.
- Finally, secure the pad with adhesive tape or a roller bandage.
- Note: Never wrap tape all the way around the injured part as this could reduce the blood flow. If you need to maintain pressure to control bleeding, use a roller bandage.
- If you have no pad or gauze available, you can use a clean, non-fluffy material such as a cloth.
Cleaning and changing wound dressings at regular intervals can speed up your loved one’s healing process and ensure they remain healthy.
