Transcript

  • 1. EQUINE MEDICINE External Coaptation-Bandaging, Splints, Casts
  • 2. INDICATIONS  Compression of dead space or open wound space  Reduce motion  Minimize contamination  Medication application  Prevent mutilation  Protect limb  Control hemorrhage
  • 3. COMPLICATIONS  Pressure sores  Pressure necrosis  Tendon & ligament injury  Too much padding may cause: – Bandage slipping – Bandage bunching – Compromised blood flow
  • 4. BANDAGE MONITORING  Must be done daily – Placement/Tightness – Soiling/Strike-through – Swelling of limb – Damage of materials – Increased lameness – Patient monitoring  Tie/cross-tie horse  Neck cradle  Wrap safe/other liquids  Electronic strips
  • 5. Types of Bandages  Exercise – Polo wraps, splint boots – Bell boots – Support-Professional’s Choice  Shipping – Protection from self & trailer  May extend to cover carpus/tarsus & hoof  Bandages or boots
  • 6. Types of Bandages  Hoof – Uses  Cover hoof wounds  Protection – Types  EZ boots/Davis boots  Bandages – Considerations  Needs to be waterproof  No pressure at the coronary band  Weight bearing surface needs to be thick
  • 7. Types of Bandages  Distal Limb (Standing Bandage) – Uses  Inflammatory conditions  Protection  Support – Coverage  Top of metacarpus/metacarpus to coronary band – Application  Clean & medicate wounds  Bandage with limb weight bearing  All materials should be easily accessible before beginning
  • 8. Types of Bandages  Full Limb – Used when upper limb needs to be bandaged – Bony prominences  Extra padding  Relief incision
  • 9. Types of Bandages  Limb Splints – Immobilize joint, bone, soft tissue  Robert Jones  Strut  Kimsey
  • 10. Types of Bandages  Limb Casts – Better than splints for immobilization – Usually applied under anesthesia – Weight bearing surface must be reinforced – Types  Foot  Lower limb  Full limb  Tube (Sleeve)
  • 11. Cast Monitoring  Should be checked at least twice daily – TPR – Hot spots on cast – Odor, exudate, swelling – Wear, cast integrity – Opposite limb inflammation – Weight bearing  Complications – Cast sores – Opposite limb  Laminitis  Tendon/ligament damage
