The structure of medical transparent dressing is composed of breathable PU film (polyurethane film), medical pressure-sensitive adhesive, superabsorbent cotton pad and protective paper. It is suitable for aseptic care of postoperative wounds, acute and chronic wounds, small cuts and abrasions.
Clinically, medical transparent dressings are easy to operate, convenient, comfortable and soft, and can be used in various parts of the body. Good waterproofness ensures that patients can perform basic life activities such as bathing. The transparent, breathable PU film prevents wound infection and facilitates observation of the surrounding wound.
The transparent wound dressing adopts ultra-thin PU film, which makes the dressing have ultra-high moisture permeability, avoids the accumulation of water vapor between the PU film and the skin, prolongs the use time, reduces the sensitivity rate, and prevents the occurrence of infection.
The absorbent pad has good liquid absorption performance, which greatly reduces the occurrence of wound maceration and provides a good healing environment for the wound. The diversion mesh surface on the surface of the absorbent pad makes the dressing not stick to the wound, and it is easy to peel off when changing the dressing, which will not cause secondary damage to the wound.
Correct use method and steps:
1. Clean the wound;
2. Select the appropriate size of wound dressing;
3. Tear off the outer packaging, then peel off the release paper on the back, align the dressing core at the wound, and gently press the surrounding edges of the dressing to make it tightly adhered to the surrounding skin;
4. According to the arrow instructions, peel off the transparent protective film above, leaving only the dressing film.
It should be noted that the skin should be washed or disinfected according to the hospital’s operating specifications before use, and the dressing should be applied after the skin is dry. When choosing a dressing, ensure that the area is large enough, at least 2.5cm wide, on the dry, healthy skin around the puncture site or wound.
When the dressing is found to be damaged or peeled off. It should be replaced in time to ensure the barrier and fixation of the dressing. When the wound exudates a lot, the dressing should be changed in time. The presence of cleansers, protectants, or antibacterial ointments on the skin can affect the adhesion of the dressing. Stretching the puncture and fixing the dressing and then sticking it will cause tension damage to the skin.
When erythema or infection is found in the used part, the dressing should be removed and necessary treatment should be done. The frequency of dressing changes should be increased or the use of dressings should be discontinued while taking appropriate medical measures.
