This dressing has four distinct layers designed to cover all stages of wound care. Layer 1, a non-adherent contact layer, protects the wound site and will not stick to granulation tissue. Layer 2, a soft pad, absorbs drainage. Layer 3, a non-woven backing with an adhesive border, securely holds the contact pad in place. Layer 4, a semi-occlusive, polyurethane film, helps deter external contaminants and maintains an optimal wound environment. The vapor permeable film coating allows showering and protects the wound from water and contamination. It also protects clothing and bed linens from blood or exudate strike-through. Sterile.
