The wound dressing is a fast wicking, non-swelling polyurethane foam with a highly breathable film backing which prevents wound exudate strike-through and is a barrier to outside contamination while the dressing remains intact without leakage.
Heavily draining wounds often result in skin maceration, frequent dressing changes and patient discomfort. Tegaderm foam dressing (nonadhesive) provides total fluid management by a combination of fast wicking, high absorbency and breathability. The edges of the dressing must be bordered with 3M Tegaderm Transparent Dressing for barrier protection against bacteria and viruses.Benefits:
- Reduced skin maceration
- Ease of application
- Barrier to strike-through
- Variety of sizes and styles
