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.
