Fitting the Abdominal Belt

■ In addition to a Tensoplast bandage, an abdominal belt is also used until the Redon drains are removed. This ensures good compression on the detached wound surfaces, which prevents serous swellings and bleeding. During this time, the patient should have bed rest in a slightly angled supine position with the upper body raised.

Abdomen Belt

■ The abdominal belt should be fitted with traction. It should be loosened if the patient has difficulty breathing. Thrombosis and infection prophylaxis must be carried out during the patient's stay in the hospital.
