Israeli bandage
 n.— «Cpl. Fevens explained how Cpl. Robertson should cut his pants off to look for arterial bleeding that could kill him in minutes. After they determined there was none, Cpl. Robertson used something soldiers call Israeli bandages to wrap both legs. “They’re kind of like self-tightening when you wrap them.”» —“One step at a time” by Chris Lambie Chronicle Herald (Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada) Feb. 23, 2008.
