Most first aid kits will include a triangular bandage, whether non-woven or calico. It’s a highly-versatile piece of first aid equipment. The bandage is unlike other rolled bandages, its triangular shape gives it many applications. In an emergency situation, it can step in for other equipment that you may not have.
The standard purpose is for creating a sling and immobilising an arm in place until treatment can be given. However, it can also be used for treating head injuries, bracing sprained ankles, as a makeshift tourniquet, to splint broken legs, immobilise a fractured jaw, as a hip wrap, and the sterile options can be used to treat bleeding wounds.
So, as you can see, the triangular bandage is surprisingly versatile tool for all sports first aiders and medics.
