Fourteen nurses with experience in the use of high-compression bandaging were asked to bandage the same limb with two different bandaging systems: the ‘Charing Cross’ fourlayer regimen (System A), and a modified system incorporating two new bandages (System B). A sub-bandage pressure monitor was used to quantify the efficacy of the resulting bandaging for the two systems.

The results indicated that there was no significant difference between site sub-bandage pressures achieved using the two bandaging systems. Sub-bandage pressure profiles, however, fluctuated with patient posture, the best profiles being obtained with System B and the patient in the sitting position.
