Ear or Cheek Bandage Application

Posted on 10 Jan 2014 Comments Off on Ear or Cheek Bandage Application



The ear bandage application is similarly applied with the cheek bandage application. Only the location matters. The illustration below shows the ear application and notice that the center of the bandage is placed on the injured ear. Should the application be for the cheek, then place the center of the bandage over the cheek area.
