Broken Ribs

Category: Accidents, Emergencies and Poisons

Put on a towel, about eight to twelve inches wide. This
should go around the body and be pinned tightly; or, if you have a roll of
adhesive plaster, two and one-half to three inches wide, use this. Start
at the backbone, at the lowest point necessary, about two ribs below the
broken one, and carry it straight across the chest to the breast bone; put
on about eight of such strips, lapping each about one-half inch. Fasten
the ends with a strip running up and down one-half on the flesh and the
other half on the strip. This is to keep the strips from slipping any. The
arms should be held up while the strips are being applied.
