Bandages, Retention, Elastic
Definition : Bandages designed with elastic properties. These bandages are usually made of mechanically crimped cotton and include some elastomer; they usually readily conform to body contour. The bandages usually extend in multiple directions (two-way stretch), imparting elasticity but little compression capability to the bandage. Elastic retention bandages may be covered with an adherent substance, and they are intended to retain dressings or other small devices (e.g., splints, intravenous catheters) in an appropriate position. They are not intended to support or compress a body part.
