XTRASORB FOAM NON-ADHESIVE STERILE DRESSING
Xtrasorb foam provides a marked advancement to standard polyurethane foam dressings.
The difference is on the outer facing portion of the dressing. Bonded to this side is a patented super absorbent polymer sheet. Through a strong osmotic pull, this sheet takes fluid that enters the foam and wicks it to the back of the dressing, converting it into a gel. This locks the fluid away from the wound bed, decreasing the risk of maceration and decreasing the time that wound fluids are in contact with the wound and surrounding skin.
The dressing itself can absorb more than twice the fluid over other foam dressings and retains a significant amount of the fluid within the dressing, even under compression. Other polyurethane foams act like sponges, allowing fluid to push back into the wound under compression.
