• Multilayer system simultaneously absorbs and protects, while providing graduated sustained compression
McKesson Compression Bandaging System, Four-Layer is for managing venous leg ulcers and related conditions. This system consists of four bandages that, when applied correctly, provide compression for seven days, depending on the amount of drainage.
Prior to use, determine the ankle-brachial index (ABI) using Doppler ultrasound. An ABI less than 0.8 may indicate the presence of significant arterial disease. Do not use this Bandaging System without direct medical supervision if the patient's ABI is less than 0.8 or if arterial disease is suspected. While using this product, if the patient develops pains, numbness, color changes, cool toes or foot, the patient should seek immediate medical attention. Do not use this Bandaging System on patients with an ankle circumference less than 18cm. Apply extra padding as needed over bony prominences of the ankle and/or tibia to avoid pressure necrosis.
