Figure-eight-rationale: the nurse uses a figure-eight technique to bandage a joint, such as an ankle, elbow, wrist, or knee. the nurse uses the circular bandaging technique to anchor a bandage; the recurrent technique to bandage a stump, hand, or scalp; and the spiral reverse bandaging technique to accommodate the increasing circumference of a body part such as when in a cast.client needs category: physiological integrityclient needs subcategory: basic care and comfortcognitive level: knowledgereference: taylor, c., et al. fundamentals of nursing: the art and science of nursing care, 6th ed. philadelphia: lippincott williams & wilkins, 2008, p. 1215.
