Roll the bandage upwards, hold it with your right hand, unfold the bandage about 8cm, fix the head of the bandage with your left thumb to the part to be bandaged, and bandage the part in a continuous ring with your right hand. The number of rolls depends on your needs. Fix the end of the bandage with a twisted cloth.

Spiral dressing

Used for parts with approximately equal circumference, such as upper arms, fingers, etc. From the distal end, wrap the two rolls in a circular ring, and then spirally wind at a 30° angle toward the proximal end. Each roll overlaps the previous roll by 2/3, and the end tape is fixed. In the absence of bandages in first aid or temporary fixation of splints, the bandages do not cover each other weekly, which is called snake bandaging.
