Foot.-rationale: an elastic bandage should be applied from the distal area to the proximal area. this method promotes venous return. in this case, the nurse should begin applying the bandage at the clients foot. beginning at the ankle, lower thigh, or knee wont promote venous return.client needs category: physiological integrityclient needs subcategory: basic care and comfortcognitive level: applicationreference: ellis, j.r., and bentz, p.m. modules for basic nursing skills, 7th ed. philadelphia: lippincott williams & wilkins, 2007, p. 696.
