- May 31, '12 by mommy.19What exactly is your question about repetitive injuries with compression wraps? The most frequently we have ever ordered compression wraps was daily, but this was upon the patient's first admit to the wound clinic when the edema/weeping was being aggressively managed. Once the edema was under control and the patient became compliant with diuretics and diet/elevation of extremities, the wrapping frequency was decreased to 3x per week. The frequency also depends on if the patient has a wound on their legs, what the drainage is, etc.
