Advanced Wound Care products are designed with wound care providers and their patients in mind. We offer a comprehensive advanced wound care dressings portfolio to protect and promote a moist wound healing environment.
Antimicrobial dressings are typical wound care products derived from agents such as silver, iodine, and polyhexethylen biguanide. These products combine active ingredients with a dressing to deliver an antimicrobial or antibacterial action to the wound.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. Wound healing studies have shown that collagen encourages the deposition and organization of newly formed tissue in the wound bed. It can stimulate new tissue development and wound debridement creating an environment conducive to healing. Collagen dressings are available in sheets, pads, and powder.
Composite dressings are produced as a single dressing with multiple functions. They are assembled from two or more physically distinct products such as a bacterial barrier, absorbent layer ( foam, super-absorbent, hydrocolloid) non-adherent pad and hydrogels which are all covered with an adhesive border and can be used as a primary or secondary dressing.
Foam dressings are non-linting and absorbent. They can be used as primary or secondary dressings for partial and full thickness wounds with minimal, moderate or heavy drainage, as a primary dressing for absorption and insulation, or as a secondary dressing. They are available in various thicknesses in pads, sheets or as border dressings with extended adhesive.
Hydrocolloids are occlusive and adhesive wafer dressings which combine absorbent colloidal materials with adhesive elastomers to manage light to moderate amounts of wound exudate. Most hydrocolloids react with wound exudate to form a gel-like covering which protects the wound bed and maintains a moist wound environment.
Hydrogel Dressings help with fast recovery of wounds and act as a wound filler. Foams are highly absorbent dressings generally made from a hydrophilic polyurethane foam. There are various absorption rates of the different foams on the market. Highly absorbent foams may allow the caregiver to change dressings less frequently.
