PRO ADVANTAGE Skin & Wound Care NON-ADHESIVE FOAM DRESINGS WITH BARIER The outer, pink layer used on non-adherent dressing is a breathable film layer. This allows the formation and maintenance of a moist wound healing environment at the wound surface, preventing eschar formation. The pink film is also waterproof and assists in preventing bacterial strike-through, Non-adherent dressings are non-adhesive and are therefore recommended for wounds surrounded by sensitive skin, such as venous ulcers. The lack of adhesive allows the use of the most suitable retention method, for example, tape onto intact skin, appropriate bandaging or a film dressing such as transparent film dressing. Non-adherent dressings are comfortable and can be cut to suit various wound shapes and locations. Non-adherent dressings absorb exudate, they may swell slightly, but do not leave debris in the wound. Dressing changes are therefore easier for the nurse and less traumatic for the patient; wound irrigation can be kept to a minimum. The progression of exudate through the dressing is visible through the pink top film. Sterile, Polyurethane. P157512 2" x 2.125", 10/bx P157514 4" x 4 1/4", 10/bx HYDROCOLOID DRESINGS This integrated hydrocolloid formula provides world-class wound healing effectiveness. We offer an ultra-thin hydrocolloid at 15mm. Our standard hydrocolloid is capable of besting the competition wear time while reducing profile and weight by 25%. The outer polyurethane layer provides a barrier to water and bacteria, while maintaining a moist environment. The semi-occlusive properties allow for oxygen and moisture vapor transmission creating the optimal conditions for wound healing. Sterile. P157602 Thin, 2" x 2.125", 20/bx P157604 Thin, 4" x 4 1/4", 10/bx P157614 Regular Thickness, 4" x 4 1/4", 5/bx CALCIUM ALGINATE DRESINGS Calcium alginate is a wound exudate absorber for moderately to heavily draining wounds. It may be appropriately used for Stage II and IV pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, arterial and diabetic ulcers, donor sites, superficial burn wounds, surgical incisions, abrasions, lacerations and traumatic wounds. Available in flat dressings or wound packing rope. P157702 2" x 2", 10/bx P157704 4 1/4" x 4 1/4", 10/bx P157712 12" Ribbon, 5/bx TRANSPARENT FRAME-STYLE FILM DRESINGS This multipurpose, transparent film dressing provides a thin flexible covering to help protect the wound surface or secure catheters and IVs. The dressings are water-resistant to enable patient bathing and transparent to permit observation without removing the dressing. Their moisture vapor permeability allows excess moisture to vent while maintaining a moist wound environment conducive to healing. The latex-free adhesive is gentle on the skin. Sterile. P157402 2.375" x 2 3/4", 100/bx P157404 4" x 4 3/4", 50/bx BORDERED ISLAND GAUZE DRESINGS An absorbent island dressing constructed with a heavy-duty absorbent pad and conformable, non-woven fabric adhesive backing. The porous structure of the Sontara® non-woven fabric ensures air and water vapor permeability. The fabric is stretchable, conforms well to body contours and allows body movements when in place. The adhesive has been designed to be gentle to the skin but at the same time provide secure fixation. The wound pad can absorb moderate amounts of wound fluids and the low-adherent surface reduces the risk of adherence to the wounds. P157204 4" x 4", 2" x 2" Pad, 25/bx P157206 6" x 6", 4" x 4" Pad, 25/bx WATER PROF COMPOSITE ISLAND DRESINGS This dressing has four distinct layers designed to cover all stages of wound care. Layer 1, a non-adherent contact layer, protects the wound site and will not stick to granulation tissue. Layer 2, a soft pad, absorbs drainage. Layer 3, a non-woven backing with an adhesive border, securely holds the contact pad in place. Layer 4, a semi-occlusive, polyurethane film, helps deter external contaminants and maintains an optimal wound environment. The vapor permeable film coating allows showering and protects the wound from water and contamination. It also protects clothing and bed linens from blood or exudate strike-through. Sterile. P157304 4" x 4", 2" x 2" Pad, 10/bx P157306 6" x 6", 4" x 4" Pad, 10/bx NON-ADHESIVE FOAM DRESINGS This dressing is designed with cost-effectiveness in mind, yet will provide a clinically effective dressing for management of exudating wounds. It is made of a non-adherent, highly absorbent, lint free polyurethane foam. Featuring a thick and very soft construction, it is extremely conformable and comfortable, especially for painful wounds where some protection and cushioning are desirable. Conformability makes this dressing ideal for difficult to dress areas of the body. Sterile, Polyurethane. P157502 2" x 2.125", 10/bx P157504 4" x 4 1/4", 10/bx Healthcare Products 7
