Pressure Bandages are another very important piece of a first aid kit, or EMS response team. Pressure Bandages are used to compress a wound to prevent excessive blood loss. Used with gauze, pressure bandages are key to stemming blood loss until one can reach a medical facility. We have many different sizes and types of these bandages to make sure you are prepared to help save a life.
Pressure Bandages are not just applied to large, excessively bleeding wounds. They can also be applied to a variety of different kinds of wounds that cause bleeding. Small bandages, for example, can quickly stop bleeding from small cuts and other minor wounds, especially on fingers, toes, and other hard-to-reach areas. Another feature is after the bleeding has stopped, they protect the wounded area from exposure to the outside, which could lead to renewed bouts of bleeding and even lead to infection.
