How to use "Plaster bandage" in context?
A plaster dressing for an injury or wound is a soft piece of plaster-of-Paris or other plaster compound that is placed over a wound to hold it in place and help to stop the bleeding. It is usually held in place by a bandage.
Paste plaster may be injected into a wound through a small needle, knitting or crochet needle, or ultrasound probe. The material is then worked into a thick cream or paste, and the wound is covered. The paste is said to set in about three hours, and should be reapplied after every four hours of activity.
