Derma Sciences Hydrogel Dressing Xtrasorb™ Colloidal 4.5 L” X 4.5 W”, 10EA/BX
XTRASORB® HCS Wound Dressing is a hybrid dressing combining hydrogel and hydrocolloid technology, with an additional super absorbent polymer for added fluid handling capability. The dressing consists of a water/glycerin component to help hydrate dry to lightly exuding wounds, and a sodium carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) / super absorbent polymer (SAP) component to help absorb moderate amounts of exudates. On dry to lightly exuding wounds, the hydrating dressing is cooling and soothing upon application. On moderately exuding wounds, the CMC/SAP forms a hydrophilic gel that locks exudates into the dressing.
XTRASORB® HCS is available in the form of both a borderless and a bordered “island” dressing, both backed by an integral PU film barrier that provides a barrier to external contaminants. On the bordered version, this PU film extends beyond the center wound pad, creating a skin-friendly adhesive border to aid fixation.
The dressing has been formulated and designed to encourage wound bed preparation, granulation and subsequent epithelialization of chronic wounds, while minimizing the risk of infection by acting as a bacterial barrier. The dressings help to provide an environment for optimally balanced moist wound healing by protecting against wound dehydration while also absorbing excess wound exudates. The unique gelling action of the CMC/SAP is designed to lock wound fluid within the dressing, helping to reduce the risk of maceration.
Under the supervision of a health care professional, XTRASORB® HCS dressing may be used for the management of acute and chronic, non-infected or mildly infected wounds. It may be used on dry, lightly exuding, and moderately exuding wounds including:
