Mastoid Bandage:How to do it?
It is customary to apply a pressure dressing over the head after any ear surgery.This is called Mastoid bandage.It is kept for a day or two only and the purpose is to reduce local swelling and haematoma. The bandage is usually secured in such a way as to lift it away from the eye, sometimes with a length of ribbon gauze tied in a knot over the temporal region. Pressure from the knot should be tied carefully not to any cause injury to the underlying tissues.
