Wound Care & Dressings
Wound Dressings are products that are applied to a wound to help it heal as well as keep it protected from infections. Wound Dressings are similar to bandages, which are used to secure the dressings. They are designed to be in direct contact with the wound making them different from a tape or bandage which are used to keep the dressing in place. Popular products in this category include Rolled Bandage, Gauze Swab, Surgical Tape, Crepe Bandage, Adhesive Bandage, Composite Dressing, Transparent Dressing, Silver Dressing, Cohesive Bandage, Hot Cold Pack, Absorbent Dressing, Antiseptic Dressing, Silicone Gel Sheet, Dental Dressing, Mesh Dressing, among several others.
Functions of Wound Dressings:
Depending on the severity and location of the wound, wound dressings help to stem bleeding, absorb exudate, ease pain and debride wounds. It is very important to choose the right kind of dressing for a wound since that determines how comfortable the patient will be during the period of healing as well as how quickly the wound will heal. A doctor or a care giver will usually check the wound and determine the most appropriate dressing depending on the size and location of the wound as well as a few other factors. Dressings can modify the chemical environment around a wound to prevent infection. Some dressings come impregnated with antiseptics. Some come with analgesics to reduce pain.
