Foam wound dressing
- Easy to remove from the wound
- Very strong absorption
- Protective lining prevents moisture penetration
Foam dressing with adhesive border are designed to help treat moderate to highly drained wounds. The dressing absorbs wound exudate, promotes moist healing of the wound, protects the wound from contamination and allows water vapor exchange. The white side of the foam dressing is used for wounds. The coral-colored top of the foam dressing contains a moisture-permeable layer that is designed to prevent exudate from exuding, while acting as a protective barrier to external wound contaminants. The foam dressing with adhesive border is designed to be easily removed from the wound site. The non-adhesive structure of the foam dressing for wound care helps ensure that the skin around the wound is not damaged.
Foam dressing use for
• Third and fourth grade pressure ulcer wounds
• Leg ulcers
• Cavity injuries
• Used as a protective pad
• Third-degree burns
• Dry injury
• surgical implants
Foam dressings can be used on wounds with softened necrotic tissue. They are also flexible and can be cut to fit specific body parts such as toes, fingers or ears. Due to its thermal properties, foam dressings can be used on wounds that require thermal insulation to keep them warm. In addition, foam dressings can help protect the skin from bone protrusions or areas of high skin friction.
Undrained wounds and third-degree burns are usually not good choices for foam dressings. These dressings are also ineffective at focusing dry wounds because there is no exudate and the wound bed may be too dry for a dry wound healing environment (although in this case foam dressings can be used to keep the char char dry and prevent accidental removal). If the foam is quickly absorbed, excessive exudate may be a contraindication and may allow external bacteria to enter the wound. In addition, excessive exudate may require too many dressing changes and cause the area around the wound to become macerated. In this case, a more absorbent foam or other dressing type is needed.
