Leydig, Voit & Osann ABSTRACT: A bandage includes a compress pad which is secured to an elongated bandage strip of gauzelike material by strips of tape sandwiched between the pad and the gauze strip and each having pressure-sensitive adhesive on both faces to stick the pad to the gauze strip.

BANDAGE WITII COMPRESS PAD BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION This invention relates to a bandage and, more particularly, to a bandage with a compress pad which is secured to one side of an elongated strip of gauzelike material intermediate the ends thereof. A bandage of this general type is disclosed in St. Clair US. Pat. No. 3,421,502.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The primary aim of the present invention is to provide a new and improved bandage of the above character in which the compress is secured to the gauze strip in a much simpler, less expensive and more trouble-free manner than has been possi ble heretofore.

A more detailed object is to achieve the foregoing by securing the compress to the strip with tape having pressure-sensitive adhesive on both sides so that, after application of the tape to the compress, the latter simply may be pressed onto the strip and automatically secured in place.

The invention also resides in the construction of the compress and in the placement of the tape to enable use of the compress in either a folded or extended condition.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent from the following detailed description when taken in connection with the accompanying drawings.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS FIG. I is a perspective view of a new and improved bandage embodying the novel features of the present invention.

FIG. 2 is an enlarged fragmentary cross section taken substantially along the line 22 of FIG. 1.

FIG. 3 is a fragmentary perspective view of the compress and showing the tape being applied to the compress.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT As shown in the drawings for purposes of illustration, the invention is embodied in a bandage of the type which usually is wrapped around an arm or a leg to protect and restrict bleeding of a wound or incision. I-Ierein, the bandage comprises an elongated strip 11 of gauzelike material which is pleated at spaced intervals along its length as indicated at 13 to enable folding of the bandage accordion fashion for purposes of packaging the bandage in an envelope (not shown).

Secured to one side of the strip 11 intermediate the ends thereof is a compress pad 15 which is positioned directly against the wound when the strip is wrapped around the limb of the victim In this instance, the compress comprises a relatively thick inner layer 16 of cotton or other absorbent material which is wrapped with a thin outer film 17 of Mylar or the like. The film prevents the cotton from sticking to the wound and is formed with tiny perforations that allow ventilation of the wound while permitting the absorption of blood or other fluid into the cotton.

As shown in FIG. 1, the compress 15 herein is divided into two foldable sections 19 and 20 by a hinge or fold line 21 extending transversely of the strip 11. The section I9 is secured to the strip while the section 20 is adapted to be selectively positioned either in an extended condition (as shown in FIG. I and in full lines in FIG. 2) in face-to-face relation with the strip to cover a large wound or in a folded condition (as shown in phantom in FIG. 2) doubled back over the fold 21 and positioned face-to-face with the section I9 to provide a double thickness of compress material for covering a smaller wound.

In accordance with the present invention, the compress I5 is simply taped to the gauze strip 11 to enable attachment of the compress to the strip in a simple and trouble-free manner. For these purposes, two transversely extending tape strips 24 and 25 each with a coating of pressure-sensitive adhesive on both faces are sandwiched between the compress and the gauze strip 11. One face of each tape strip sticks to the compress while the other face sticks to the gauze strip to firmly secure the compress to the auze strip.

The tape strips 24 and 2 herein are of the type sold under the trade designation DUBL-STIK" by Kleen-Stick Products of Chicago, Illinois, and each simply is formed by a film of backing material that is coated on each side with an adhesive adapted to stick to another material under applied pressure and without the need of being activated by heat. The compress 15 is attached to the gauze strip 11 by first pressing the strip 24 onto the compress adjacent the fold 21 and by pressing the strip 25 onto the compress along the edge portion thereof remote from the fold. Thereafter, the compress is simply pressed in place on the gauze strip with the inner faces of the tape strips sticking to the compress to anchor the latter securely. By virtue of the location of the tape strips, the compress section 20 is free to hinge about the fold 21 to either its extended or folded position. After attachment of the compress, the bandage may be folded, packaged in a glassine envelope, and then sterilized.

From the foregoing, it will be apparent that the tape strips 24 and 25 with the pressure-sensitive adhesive enable attachment of the compress 15 on the gauze strip 11 automatically as an incident to placement of the compress on the gauze strip. As a result, it is not necessary to sew the compress to the gauze strip and yet the two are securely attached to one another and form a completed unit prior to packaging of the bandage 10. The tape strips can be applied in an extremely simple manner thus helping to reduce the overall cost of the bandage.

I claim as my invention:

1. A bandage comprising an elongated strip of gauzelike material, a compress pad located on one side of said strip between the ends thereof, said pad having a transversely extending fold intermediate its ends dividing the pad into first and second hinged sections with the first section selectively being adapted to be extended and positioned face-to-face with said one side of said strip or to be doubled over said fold and positioned face-to-face with said second section, and at least one piece of pressure-sensitive tape sandwiched between said one side of said strip and the second section of said pad, opposite faces of said tape having pressure-sensitive adhesive stuck to said strip and said second section to anchor said second section to said strip while leaving said first section free to hinge about said fold.

2. A bandage as defined in claim I in which two pieces of tape each having adhesive on both faces thereof are sandwiched between said strip and the second section of said pad, one of said pieces of tape being stuck to said second section adjacent said fold, and the other piece of tape being spaced from said one piece lengthwise of said strip and being stuck to said second section adjacent the edge thereof remote from said fold.

Claims (2)

1. A bandage comprising an elongated strip of gauzelike material, a compress pad located on one side of said strip between the ends thereof, said pad having a transversely extending fold intermediate its ends dividing the pad into first and second hinged sections with the first section selectively being adapted to be extended and positioned face-to-face with said one side of said strip or to be doubled over said fold and positioned face-to-face with said second section, and at least one piece of pressure-sensitive tape sandwiched between said one side of said strip and the second section of said pad, opposite faces of said tape having pressure-sensitive adhesive stuck to said strip and said second section to anchor said second section to said strip while leaving said first section free to hinge about said fold.
2. A bandage as defined in claim 1 in which two pieces of tape each having adhesive on both faces thereof are sandwiched between said strip and the second section of said pad, one of said pieces of tape being stuck to said second section adjacent said fold, and the other piece of tape being spaced from said one piece lengthwise of said strip and being stuck to said second section adjacent the edge thereof remote from said fold.
