Abstract

The invention relates to a head dressing comprising a central portion (Ia, Ib) from which flaps (4a-12a, 4b-10b) extends. The flaps comprises a first set of side flaps (4a-b, 5a-b) extending from the central portion in a direction essentially opposite that of a second set of side flaps (6a-b, 7a-b), and set of longitudinal flaps (8a- 12a, 8b- 10b) extending essentially orthogonally to the direction of extension of the side flaps. In one embodiment of the invention, the head dressing comprises at least a first and a second layer (a, b), where a first set of flaps (4a- 12a) extends from the first layer and a second set of flaps (4a- 12a) extends from the second layer.

Description

HeadtJandage

The present invention relates to a head dressing according to the introductory portions of the independent claim.

Background of the invention

When bandages are wound around a patient's head after an operation, the head has to be lifted for every turn of the winding. As the dressing requires a large number of turns, the head has to be lifted repeatedly or held uplifted during the whole process. This Is undesirable, as head and neck injuries may result and it further puts a heavy load on the person applying the dressing.

US6086551 discloses a device for a dressing with flaps that extend from a central portion. Only flaps with a total width corresponding to the circumference of the central portion may extend from the central portion, which limits the usability of the device.

An object of the invention is therefore to provide a head dressing which allows better dressings to be applied.

These and other objects are attained by a head dressing according to the characterising portions of the independent claim.

Summary of the invention

The invention relates to a head dressing comprising a central portion Ia, Ib from which flaps 4a- 12a, 4b-10b extends. The flaps comprises a first set of side flaps 4a-b, 5a-b extending from the central portion in a direction essentially opposite that of a second set of side flaps 6a-b, 7a-b, and set of longitudinal flaps 8a-12a, 8b-10b extending essentially orthogonally to the direction of extension of the side flaps. With the flaps arranged in this fashion, an optimal coverage of the head is achieved.

In a particularly advantageous embodiment of the invention, the head dressing comprises at least a first and a second layer a, b, where a first set of flaps 4a-12a extends from the first layer and a second set of flaps 4a-12a extends from the second layer. By providing the head dressing with at least two layers a larger number of flaps may be attached to the central portion that otherwise would be possible. This makes it possible to apply a larger number of flaps to the head without having to lift the head more than once.

Description of a preferred embodiment

The head dressing comprises an upper layer a and a lower layer b, with essentially the same outer contours. Both layers has a rectangular central portion Ia, Ib with two opposite short sides and two opposite long sides. The two layers are joined at the central portion such that the upper layer exposes an upper surface that is placed against the head, while the lower layer exposes a lower surface that in use faces away from the head.

Fig. 1 shows the upper layer of the head dressing, where an absorbing compress 3 is arranged on the central portion Ia. The compress gives additional rigidity to the dressing such that it makes it easier to slide it under the patient's head. It obviously further absorbs liquid and improves the patients comfort level. From both short sides of the central portion extends two equally wide, rectangular side flaps, such that totally four upper side flaps 4a- 7a are provided. The lower side of the upper side flaps are provided with adhesive.

Five rectangular, longitudinal flaps 8a-12a are arranged on one of the long sides of the central portion. The upper longitudinal flaps are of equal width, but of different length. On top, a shortest upper longitudinal flap 12a is arranged in the middle of the central portion. Below this, a pair of longer, symmetrically arranged upper longitudinal flaps lOa-1 Ia are provided immediately adjacent each other. Below these, a pair of yet longer, symmetrically placed upper longitudinal flaps 8a-9a are provided, that extends to respective ends of the long side.

Fig. 2 shows the second layer of the head dressing which, in a fashion corresponding to that of the first layer, comprises a lower central portion Ib where from its short sides extend four lower side flaps 4b-7b and from one of its long sides extend three lower longitudinal flaps 8b- 10b. The four lower side flaps 4b-7b are shaped identically to the four upper side flaps 4a- 7a and are arranged immediately below corresponding flaps. Portions with adhesive under removable protective foil pieces 13 are provided on the four lower side flaps.

The three lower longitudinal flaps 8b-10b are all of the same length and width, and extends along the full length of the lower central portion Ib. They are somewhat shorter than the longest upper longitudinal flaps 8a-9a, so they are not visible in the following figures, until the upper flaps have been folded away.

Figures 3-9 shows, in seven steps, how the head dressing is applied to a patient's head. Fig. 3 shows a first step in the application of the head dressing, where the unbroken dressing has been placed on the patient's head, with the rear end of the head rests on the compress 3. Only the four upper side flaps 4a-7a and the five upper longitudinal flaps 8a- 12a are visible in the figure, as the lower flaps are hidden by the upper ones. The head dressing is arranged such that the side flaps extend approximately from the patient's ears and sideways, while the longitudinal flaps extend in the longitudinal direction of the patient's body's.

Fig. 4 shows a second step in the application of the head dressing, where a pair of opposite upper side flaps 5a, 7a has been folded over the forehead of the patient, one flap on top of the other. As the flaps are provided with adhesive on their lower side, which now faces upwards, one flap attaches to the other. Under the place where there the pair of upper side flaps 5a, 7a that has been folded up were positioned, a pair of opposite lower side flaps 5b, 7b are now revealed.

Fig. 5 shows a third step in the application of the head dressing, where the five upper longitudinal flaps 8a-12a have been folded over the patient's head on top of the pair of opposite upper side flaps 5a, 7a. Where the five upper longitudinal flaps 8a- 12a previously were positioned, the three lower longitudinal flaps 8b- 10b are now revealed.

Fig. 6 shows a fourth step in the application of the head dressing, where the remaining pair of opposite upper side flaps 4a, 6a have been folded over the patient's head on top of the previously placed flaps. Where the remaining pair of upper side flaps 4a, 6a previously was positioned, a pair of opposite lower side flaps 4b-6b positioned under these are now revealed.

Fig. 7 shows a fifth step in the application of the head dressing, where the three lower longitudinal flaps 8b- 10b have been folded over the previously applied flaps. In the figure, all the protective foil pieces 12 from the portions of the lower side flaps 4b- 7b provided with adhesive have been removed, such that the lower side flaps can be attached to each other and to other flaps. In fig. 8 a sixth step has been taken, where a first pair of opposite lower side flaps 4b, 6b has been folded over the others. In fig. 9 a seventh and last step has been taken, where the remaining pair of opposite lower side flaps 5b, 7b has been folded over the others.
