It can also be folded as a broad-fold bandage to stop a limb from moving or made into a sling.

Application:

Triangular Bandages have a broad range of uses within a first aid kit- below are instructions on how to make 2 different types of slings.

How to make a Sling:

  • Ask the casualty to support their arm with their other hand
  • Gently slide the triangular bandage underneath the arm
  • The point of the triangle should be underneath the elbow of the injured arm
  • Bring the top end of the bandage around the back of the neck
  • Fold the lower end of the bandage up over the forearm to meet the top of the bandage at the shoulder of the injured side
  • Tie the two ends of the bandage together in a reef knot above their collar bone and tuck in the free ends
  • Adjust the sling so that it supports their arm all the way to the end of their little finger
  • Make sure that the edge of the bandage by the elbow is secured by twisting the fabric and tucking it in, or using a safety pin to fasten
  • Check the circulation in their fingertips every 10 minutes – press the casualty’s nail for 5 seconds until it turns pale, then release to see if the colour returns within 2 seconds

 

How to make an Elevation Sling:

  • Ask the casualty to support their injured arm, across the chest, with their fingers resting on the opposite shoulder
  • Lay the triangular bandage over their chest, on top of the injured arm, with one end over their uninjured shoulder
  • Hold the point of the bandage just below the elbow on the injured side
  • Tuck the lower part of the bandage underneath the injured arm
  • Bring it diagonally across their back to meet the other end of the bandage at their shoulder
  • Tie the two ends of the bandage together in a reef knot above their collar bone and tuck in the free ends
  • Make sure that the edge of the bandage by the elbow is secured by twisting the fabric and tucking it in or using a safety pin to fasten
  • Check the circulation in their thumb every 10 minutes. If it’s too tight, then loosen the sling and readjust.
