Faulding Finger Injuries Wallet 9 Pack
What are Finger Injuries?
Finger injuries are common and range from minor cuts and scrapes to wounds with major damage to bone, tendons and ligaments. If not treated properly, serious finger injuries can lead to permanent deformity and loss of function.
The main types of common finger injuries include: Laceration, avulsion (skin tear), amputation, fingernail injuries, fractures, ligament, tendon and nerve injuries.
How to treat Finger Injuries?
Control bleeding by direct, continuous pressure for at least several minutes; elevate the hand above the level of the heart to help slow the bleeding. Remove dirt or foreign objects; do not remove objects that are deeply or firmly embedded. Run your hand under plain tap water for several minutes, scrubbing gently with a washcloth if needed to remove dirt.
Always ask your pharmacist for advice before applying ointments or creams. If the finger is obviously deformed, painful, swollen, broken, severely cut, seek immediate medical attention.
For minor, superficial finger injuries (cuts and scrapes), cover with soft silicone wound dressing for gentle, pain-free adhesion and fix with textile Finger Bob® dressing to protect.
