1Introduction

Dressing

A generous length of tubular bandage is cut to dress the injured leg and a larger diameter tube for the torso. Sewing the two parts of the tubular bandage together prevents separation of the bandages as the child is moved.

The back support for the spica box is placed inside the torso tubular bandage, directly against the skin of the child's back.
