Highly absorbent and low-adherent pad. The wound contact layer enables the passage of blood or exudate into the highly absorbent pad whilst maintaining a good healing environment and minimal pain on dressing removal. The low allergy acrylic adhesive is evenly spread onto the non-woven backing surface providing a safe and secure dressing fixation over the wound site. Ensures patient comfort and conformability to all wound sites even the more difficult areas like shoulders and axillae. The protector paper, which is slit across the width of the dressing, enables quick application without the risk of touching the absorbent pad or adhesive area with fingers or forceps. The easily opened packaging facilitates aseptic dressing technique. The thick pad minimises fluid strike-through and helps to protect the wound from trauma.
