Heister Tab. III

The bandaged figure on the left shows (in alphabetical order): the “couvre-chef” bandage used after trepanations and for head wounds, the bandage called serviette for chest and stomach wounds and the “scapular” to hold it in place, bloodletting using a tourniquet, the “stirrup” foot bandage placed after bloodletting, a cutting wound on the thigh that requires suture, using a tourniquet (on image 2) to stop arm and leg bleeding, and finally, a large stomach wound with protruding intestines and tools for suturing it. Bullet removal instruments are pictured in the center: from the left, the crane, duck and goose beak, a small hook and the drill according to B. Maggi. On the right side, we see various cauteries for cauterizing wounds.
