Sterile hydrocolloid dressing is a polyester lattice support (tulle), impregnated with hydrocolloid, packed in an individual sterile envelope.
Sterile hydrocolloid dressing is a polyester lattice support (tulle), impregnated with hydrocolloid dispersion particles in a paraffin base.
In contact with the wound exsudate, the hydrocolloid particles creates a gelifying contact layer which assure the favorable conditions for the cicatrization process (cicatrization in moist environment); Due to the impregnation base properties, the dressing not adhere to the wound, the removal is atraumatic and painless. Due to the physical characteristics, the dressing can be applied on the areas with difficult positioning (anatomical folds).
INDICATIONS Hydrocolloid dressing is indicated for the local treatment of acute wound (burns, skin abrasions, traumatic wounds) and chronic wounds (ulcers,bedsores) in the exudative, granulation and epithelization phases.
