4 Tips to ease medical tape removal

April 19, 2018
/ / /

The most painful part of your recovery shouldn’t be removing your medical tape. The stickiness and persistent adhesiveness is what makes it so effective when it comes to protecting an injury, but it’s also what makes it kind of a pain in the butt to remove once it’s done its job.

Before trying any of these tricks it is important to understand your injury and what is and isn’t an option for you. If you have an unhealed wound, use extra caution when removing the tape so as to not cause any more pain or damage.

4 Tips for removing medical tape as painlessly as possible:

  1. Put baby oil around the edges, and let it soak in. The tape will be easier to peel off without and won’t stick to the skin nearly as much.
  2. Rubbing alcohol is another great way to reduce pain when removing medical tape. Unless you have an open wound, then stay away from this one as it will likely burn if it gets into the wound.
  3. Take a warm wet washcloth and place it over the tape for 10-15 minutes, and slowly peel the tape back. If it is still to sticky, rewarm to cloth and try again.
  4. Take a long bath, effectively soaking the taped area. It should be a bit soggy and less adhesive, making it easier to peel off.

May your wounds heal well, and your bandages come off painlessly!

Use it as a sweatband

When you’re tearing up the court or the course, you may find that your sweaty palms have a hard time gripping the racket/club. Don’t let that affect your game, wrap the handle in cohesive bandage for a sweat resistant grip. Along with the functionality comes the possibility of spicing up your game with fun colors and patterns.

For pet injuries

The bandage won’t stick to skin or fur, but will stay secure for as long as needed. There’s so much room for creativity and innovation, make your pet the coolest at the park with fun colors and cool designs. Ideal for dogs, cats, and horses.

Dog calmer

Believe it or not, cohesive bandage can be used to create a calming harness for your dog. Does your dog get nervous around fireworks, or new people? This wrapping style hits key pressure points that relieve anxiety and calm the nerves. It’s super simple and your pet will likely be thankful for the comforting stress reliever.

Sweatband

As long as you aren’t prone to embarrassment, cohesive bandage work great as a sweatband. They won’t stick to your hair and they’re sweat resistant. As an added bonus, if you’re playing against someone they may be distracted by how stupid you look, giving you the upper hand.

Tattoo care

Cohesive bandage can be used to protect new tattoos. Since it won’t stick to the skin, it won’t irritate or damage the new tattoo, but it will stay secure and keep dirt and sunlight off.

Keep shin-guards up

Have you ever been trying to enjoy your child’s soccer game but the poor kid keeps fiddling with their shin guards? They just won’t stay up! Come to the rescue with cohesive bandage. Wrap the shin-guard against the calf a few times with the bandage. It is helpful to do a few wraps on the top and a few on the bottom for best results. As a seasoned soccer player myself, I can say that this trick came in handy for many, many games.

Artwork for kids

CoEase can be used to create cool designs and pictures. It’s a unique and cost effective way to spark your child’s creativity in a way that isn’t messy or hard to clean up. A little canvas can easily be made, and shapes and objects can be cut out and stuck right to the canvas itself. With the variety of unique colors that Tempo offers, the possibilities are endless!

Brass vs aluminum

The stethoscope is carefully designed to amplify the sounds of the inner body, usually the lungs or the heart in order to detect any irregularities. Due to the functions of the stethoscope, it is clear that optimal clarity is of the utmost importance. The majority of stethoscope chest-pieces are made of either aluminum, stainless steel, or chrome plated brass, but today, we’re here to talk about brass specifically.

What makes brass so special?

Well, think about it, what are the majority of orchestra instruments made of? Brass. There has to be a reason for this, but why? Brass is the product of mixing together zinc and copper, which produces the most genuine sound, rich tones, and generates an acoustically superior sound to other materials. Brass picks up low frequencies, since brass instruments sound comes from differing vibrations of the player’s lips. Centuries of using brass sections for instruments has proven to deliver the most reliable and vibrant sounds of any other medium. Orchestras are revered for their brilliant, vivid music played by their brass instruments. So, the question really shouldn’t be “why brass?” But “why not brass?”
