This word, with the French, is generally used to express the methodical application of rollers, compresses, &c., Bandaging, Syndesis, to fix an apparatus upon any part,-corresponding to the words deligatio, fasciatio, fasciarum applicatio, epidssis. With us the noun is usually applied to the result of the application, or to the bandage itself ;-a sense in which the French employ the word Bande. Bandages are simple or compound. The simple bandage is equal, if the turns are applied circularly above each other; unequal, if the turns are not accurately applied upon each other. If each turn of the bandage be only covered one-third, it forms the doloire of the French; if the edges touch only slightly, it is the mousse; if the turns are very oblique and separated, it is the spiral or creeping, (F.) rampant; if folded upon each other, it is termed the reversed, (F.) renverse. By uniting various kinds of bandaging, we have the compound; and these compound bandages have received various names expressive of their figure, or of the parts to which they are applied, as capistrum, spica, &c. Bandages are divided, also, as regards their uses, into uniting, dividing, retaining, expelling, compressing.
It may be made of linen, flannel, or other stuff capable of offering a certain resistance. The two extremities of a bandage are called tails, (F.) chefs, and the rolled part is termed its head, (F.) globe. If rolled at both extremities, it is called a double-headed roller or bandage, (F.) bande a deux globes.
