Conforming and Rolled Gauze

Conforming bandages, often called rolled gauze, stretch, and mold to otherwise difficult areas to cover. Rolled gauze can also work as a secondary bandage to hold another one in place.

Conforming Vs. Rolled Gauze

A gauze bandage roll most of the time refers to non-sterile conforming bandages. A conforming bandage is typically sterile, but can still be called rolled gauze, as the material and purpose of the two types of the bandage are nearly identical. For example, non-sterile rolled gauze and a conforming bandage often go together to cover wounds on areas like elbows, knees, and other places where flexing and movement could dislodge more conventual wound care.

Types of Conforming Bandages

Conforming bandages vary in thickness from 1-ply to 6-ply bandages. They can be either fluffy or flat. They are generally more expensive than non-sterile gauze rolls but will resist bacteria and clean open wounds. For closed wounds that still need to be protected, non-sterile conforming bandages may do the trick.

Conforming bandages and rolled gauze are usually used for wounds on limbs, specifically those near or on joints. If you are not sure which is the right choice, talk to your healthcare provider or opt for the sterile product if that is not possible. Just keep in mind that once the packaging of a sterile bandage has been opened, it may no longer be considered sterile unless it can be resealed.

You can also use a non-sterile gauze roll to cover a sterile bandage like a trauma bandage and hold it in place. This enables you to keep the wound sterile but can provide a less expensive wrap.

Understanding Plys

The higher the ply, the more absorbent and protective the bandage. A one-ply bandage is light and can absorb minor amounts of discharge from a wound. A six-ply bandage is much more absorbent for a wound with a higher amount of discharge.

Sizes of Gauze Rolls and Conforming Bandages

Gauze rolls and conforming bandages come in a number of sizes, including but not limited to:

  • 1 Inch X 4-1/10 Yard
  • 1 Inch X 1-7/10 Yard
  • 2 Inch X 4-1/10 Yard
  • 2 Inch X 5 Yard
  • 2-1/4 Inch X 3 Yard
  • 3 Inch X 4-1/10 Yard
  • 3 Inch X 4-1/2 Yard
  • 3 Inch X 5 Yard
  • 3-2/5 Inch X 3-3/5 Yard
  • 4 Inch X 4-1/10 Yard
  • 4-1/2 Inch X 4-1/10 Yard

  • Choose the size of conforming bandage you will use based on the size and shape of the wound. You’ll want sufficient coverage but not too much overlap.

    What Conforming Bandage or Rolled Gauze is Right for You?

    First, decide if you need a sterile or non-sterile gauze bandage and if you will be using some of each as a primary and secondary dressing. Then, determine the amount of fluid the injury will produce. After, you can choose the right size to cover the shape of the wound. This will determine the type of bandage you will need to purchase.

    When caring for any wound, be sure to consult your physician or wound care professional if you have any questions or before starting any treatment regimen.
