MORE ABOUT THIS ITEM

 

Quick Wicking for Draining Wounds

Exudate from chronic wounds can be detrimental to wound healing. Too much exudate can damage the surrounding skin, leading to periwound maceration and skin breakdown. Managing excess exudate is key to achieving positive clinical outcomes in wound healing (1).

Qwick Wound Dressing with Aquaconductive Technology: Medline Qwick wound dressing is intended for use on moderate to heavily draining wounds. The dressing’s fast wicking and super absorbent layers absorb and retain wound exudate that contains harmful Matrix metalloproteinase (MMPs), bacteria, and necrotic debris. Its flexible material makes it versatile for use on any wound with exudate.

Features and Benefits

quick1

Wicking & super-absorbent: Helps protect skin from maceration and achieve better clinical outcomes.

 

quick2

quick4

7-day wear time: Fewer dressing changes and less disturbance to the wound.

Aquaconductive Technology

Aquaconductive Technology is the mechanism by which the three layers of Qwick wound dressing pull exudate away or out of the wound to help create an optimal, moist wound healing environment.

The blue layer is the top layer, which faces away from the wound and helps serve as an indicator of how the dressing should be applied. This layer is not occlusive, and exudate can pass through it into a secondary dressing.

quick7

The wound contact layer is composed of a blend of hydrophobic and hydrophilic fibers. Hydrophilic fibers attract the exudate, resulting in fast wicking. Hydrophobic fibers regulate and channel absorption to facilitate vertical transfer of the exudate from the wound into the storage layer of Qwick.

quick8

The storage layer consists of super absorbent polyacrylate fibers designed to absorb and retain large amounts of exudate.

CONTRAINDICATIONS: Third degree burns.

NOTE: Use a dressing large enough to cover the wound and surrounding skin.

CHANGE FREQUENCY: Qwick should be changed when drainage is visible to the edges of the dressing. It may be left in place for up to 7 days depending on the amount of drainage.
