REMOVAL OF ADHESIVE BANDAGE

REMOVAL OF ADHESIVE BANDAGE Medicated tape or adhesive bandage can readily and painlessly be removed from the patient by moistening the bandage with a little pure ethyl acetate held in absorbent cotton, by sopping lightly over the entire surface of the bandage or tape. In a few seconds the adhesive surface is killed and the bandage can be pulled free from the skin or hairy surface without the least "pull" to the patient. The ethyl acetate possesses a rather penetrating odor, but, because of its high vapor pressure, it evaporates entirely in a few minutes, leaving neither odor nor ill effect. When the adhesive tape or bandage covers areas or surface which may become infected, a few drops of tincture of iodin or a few crystals of pure iodin may be added to the ethyl acetate (the latter is an excellent solvent for iodin) for purposes of disinfection. The solution may then be used http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
