1. The essential of bandaging casting tape well is neither too tight nor too loose. Otherwise, it can cause poor blood circulation or too loose to fix the gauze. If you have no experience, you can check the far part of the body to see whether it become cold or swollen after bandaging;
2. Do not knot at the top of the wound or at the back of the body in order to avoiding comfortlessness while sleeping;
3. When first aid is needed in the absence of casting tape, we can use towels, handkerchiefs, sheets (torn into narrow pieces), and long nylon socks instead.
