The XTRASORB® Foam Dressing features highly absorptive polyurethane foam as the first wound contact layer. The foam pulls large amounts of fluid into the dressing. Unlike other foam dressings that act as a sponge, a super absorbent polymer sheet on the back of the dressing then quickly draws in the fluid.
The dressing is made from standard, highly absorptive, hydrophilic, polyurethane foam, with a patented, super absorbent polymer sheet fused to the backside of the foam. The dressing handles a considerably larger amount of fluid than most foam dressings. The wound is protected from the fluid since it is locked within the absorbent sheet, away from the wound and surrounding tissue. This reduces maceration and contact from hurtful components of wound fluid like bacteria and proteases.
The dressing also acts as a cushion and comfort to pressure points like heels, elbows, and other pressure sensitive areas. When the dressing absorbs wound fluid, the resulting gel acts to afford this comfort.
The dressing can be used on a variety of chronic and acute wounds including pressure ulcers, venous leg ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, arterial ulcers, postoperative wounds, donor sites, traumatic wounds.
