Derma Sciences Foam Dressing Xtrasorb 4.5″ x 4.5″ Square Adhesive Sterile, 10EA/BX 4BX/CS
XTRASORB® Foam dressing is a highly absorbent hydrophilic foam dressing designed for use in the management of exuding wounds. The foam has a patented super absorbent copolymer gel laminated to its upper surface, and an integral PU film backing. The super absorbent layer converts wound fluids into a gel, absorbing and retaining fluid from the foam wound contact layer , therefore maintaining an optimally balanced moisture level in the wound contacting layer for an extended period.
The dressing helps to provide an environment for optimal wound healing by managing wound exudate levels and protecting against wound dehydration and external bacterial contamination. The super absorbent gel layer both provides additional cushioning and absorption.
XTRASORB® Foam is available with or without an adhesive border.
Under the supervision of a healthcare professional, XTRASORB® Foam dressing provides a moist environment conducive to wound healing and is indicated for lightly to heavily exuding wounds such as:
Since the dressings are able to absorb and retain fluid under pressure they are suitable for use under compression. The dressings may be used to provide moisture management and protection throughout the healing process.
While XTRASORB® Foam dressing can be used on highly exuding wounds. However, level of exudates will determine the effective wear time of the dressing, and the wound should be monitored accordingly.
XTRASORB® Foam dressing may be used on patients who are in treatment for a local or systemic infection under the discretion of a Physician.
