To begin making a hand dressing, place the injured hand around a cloth ball or other malleable (cushioned or padded) object, such as a tennis ball, balled-up sock, or rolled-up elastic bandage.
Indications, part 1
Use a cloth or rolled bandage to apply a circumferential wrap. Do not forget to place padding between the fingers.
Indications, part 2
Use adhesive tape or a cloth strip to anchor the bandage and separate the fingers, as shown above.
The complete wrap leaves the fingertips exposed, so that they can be checked for adequate circulation.
