What are Medical Tapes and Bandages?

Medical tapes and bandages are essential components of healthcare, widely utilized in various medical settings. They play a critical role in wound management, supporting the healing process by holding dressings in place, stabilizing injuries, and protecting wounds from infection. Medical tapes are adhesive strips often used to secure bandages or other medical devices. They come in different materials such as cloth, paper, or plastic, and are chosen based on need, skin type, and medical condition. Their adhesive quality ensures that the dressing stays in place, thus aiding in quicker recovery. Bandages, on the other hand, are flexible strips or rolls made from materials like cotton, gauze, or synthetic blends. They are employed to cover wounds, provide compression to reduce swelling, or immobilize injured limbs. Some bandages are impregnated with antiseptics to further aid in infection prevention.
