Wound Dressing - 創傷包帯 -


Sue:  Hi, Juline.
Juline:  Hi Sue. Are you ready for the camping trip this weekend?
Sue:  We’re almost done with everything except our first aid kit. I’ve a short list of what’s lacking.                       
Juline: Alright what do you need?
Sue:  First on my list are wound dressings. 
Juline: We have non-medicated, sterile dressings that come individually wrapped in handy pack of 10.
Sue:  Are those the ones with a shiny side that reduce the adherence of the wound to the dressing? 
Juline:  Uh huh, and it can be secured with tape or bandages.
Sue:   I thought a bandage and sterile dressings are one and the same.
Juline: A bandage is designed to hold a sterile dressing in place while the sterile dressing is the antibacterial gauze itself.
Sue:  Then, I’ll take 2 packs of dressings. What would you recommend for the bandage?
Juline: One roll of 2-ply sterile bandages in a soft pouch should be good enough.
Sue:  OK. The last thing on my list are non-sterile alcohol prep pads for cleansing and scrubbing and also 10% Povidone-iodine swab sticks.
Juline: If I were you, I’d get a box of 25 dual  Povidone-iodine scrub and prep swab sticks. Each stick is saturated with  7.5% Povidone-iodine scrub solution and  10% Povidone-iodine prep solution. These are very common among  medical practitioners and first aid responders.
Sue:  Great, that’ll do. I’m so glad that I came by to ask your advice. 
Juline: No problem. I’ll go and get those for you.
