The right dressing can make a big difference.
The AQUACEL® Burn Hydrofiber® dressing reinforced with nylon, is an absorbent, soft, sterile, non-woven hydroentangled dressing.
This conformable dressing is highly absorbent of wound fluid and creates a soft gel which maintains a moist environment, supporting the body’s natural healing process and aids in the removal of unnecessary material from the wound, without damaging newly formed tissue.
Building on Hydrofiber® Technology, AQUACEL® Burn dressings:
- Minimize dressing changes and related pain1-5
- Customize the dressing to patient needs and are flexible with sizing and design, including a variety of glove sizes
- Offer wear times of up to 21 days (or until change is clinically indicated) and gently detach from the burn wound as it dries and heals.
- Promotes patient mobility and satisfaction.
