Default Ace bandages ?

What the heck, are these some kind of antiquated Medieval medical torture? When my elbow developed a bursitis. That same Guatemalan doctor had a nurse put one of these on my arm and told me I would have
to wear it for two weeks. That's all he did. No joke, the next day my hand turned nearly white, swollen up, and my arm a bright red.

It was very uncomfortable pinching the skin and coming unwrapped all the time. Try putting one of those on with one arm. So I took it off and the CNP I went to drained it, and put a neoprene Velcro cuff on it. Problem solved, neoprene and Velcro, a modern American technology.

But he was a doctor, so he must know what's right. CNP said you don't put those there like that. That could have also caused nerve damage.

those yo-yo's !

you can put those elastic bandages on just
barely tight, or tight enough to work as a
nearly-tourniquet that will cut off all the circulation
and kill tissue.

The United States doesn't have a gun control problem.
We have a people control problem.

I noticed just barely tight it would come unraveled. But as tight as they showed me how to do it was like a tourniquet. Ranger that crap is no match for the medical neoprene, as soft as it is it still holds things together but alows blood circulation. I saw where the NFL only uses it. I don't know about our military.

The CNP only recomended it, and with the Velcro it's much easier to apply.
