Israeli battle field dressing,
Israeli dressings have maybe 3 distinct advantages over the traditional field dressing.
First- instead of having 2 muslin tails that need to be wrapped in opposite directions to affix the bandage, the israeli has 1 tail that is elastic, and can be applied much like an ace bandage, roller style, so you can hold the dressing pad in place with one hand and wrap with the other. MUCH better than having to juggle multiple tails that are flopping around and so on.
Second- The tail of the dressing incorporates a plastic locking bar, which serves as an anchor point for the wrapping. By looping the tail through the locking bar and pulling tension, a VERY effective pressure dressing is created. Without the need to scrounge cravats, sticks, and stuff.
Third- Instead of having to tie off the tails with a square knot, the end is fastened with a velcro fastener.
So all-in-all it is really a souped-up, faster, simpler pressure dressing.
