Application of a pressure bandage

This lesson plan details the lesson on pressure bandage application. We apply a pressure bandage to stop severe bleeding (not catastrophic bleeding) and to protect and put pressure on a wound that has been packed with hemostatic gauze. 

A pressure bandage can be applied to arms and legs, the head and other ereas of the body that allow the bandage to be wrapped with sufficient pressure.
