Bladder bandage

It's not a wrap

One of my cats cut her lower leg badly and the vet did a half-assery job of applying a "compression bandage" which my cat shook off in seconds.

Shouldn't there be a small sheaf you can slip on and autoinflate to a reasonable psi? I am thinking of those inflatable "wings" you put on the arms of toddlers so they can go swimming.

The link provided doesn't seem quite as easy to apply.

Better - but would your cat still be able to shake it off? https://theindexpro...g/award/nominees/77
UFlex all-in-one self-inflating compress and gauze for bleeding emergency. [a1, Mar 08 2024]


       One difficulty you may have in realizing your version will be automatically inflating to a "reasonable pressure." That may vary by patient and circumstance.

       [+] There can be a pressure setting and a booklet of the best pressures to use. Channeling [8th]: This is brilliant! how many PSI can it go up to? I would like to place a bulk order immediately.

       [a1]'s link is much closer. On the plus side, it self-inflates with foam, not air, so claws would be less of a problem, but 1) you have to wrap it around an active cat 2) it's still too loose.   

       As an aside, that compress is much better as a splint than a tourniquet. A tourniquet is supposed to tighten until there is no pulse detected (distal) and I don't see the compress accomplishing that.
