Importance of Wound Dressing

Wound dressing provides much more important protection than just protecting the bruised/affected part of the skin. Even the color, weight, odor, and fluid distribution through various stages of the wound dressing help to draw conclusions about the healing process. In many cases, wound dressing is also the only way to make sure that the treatment goes in the right direction. Depending upon the severity and type of wound, it is also important that the right kind of dressing products is chosen. While most of us are aware of traditional dressing in the form of gauze and absorbent / disinfecting ointment, modern hydroactive systems and super absorbers speed the healing process.

Advanced Bandages and Foams

At ActiveForever, this product line presents a variety of dressing alternatives depending on the type of injury/damage to the skin. The Ferris Polymen Quadrafoam for instance combines 4 types of healing properties including cleansing, filling, absorbing and moisturizing into one formula. This product can be used in all types of wound care treatment. However, depending on the position of the wound, many would prioritize adhesive property of the gauze for better protection against moisture, dust, and other elements. In this case, the 3M Tegaderm Foam Adhesive Dressing is a suitable alternative. For surgical wounds on the other hand, better protection is provided by products like SEAL-TIGHT Shield.

Specialty Products

Many nurses also administer special dressing gauzes like the Smith & Nephew Allevyn Composite Foam Dressing that protects the affected area when compression therapy is being used. Burns, on the other hand, will be better dealt with Hollister Restore Odor-Absorbent Dressing that soak up the continual infection and create a dry surface for better healing. However, if you are in favor of cotton gauzes, it is important that you add extra antibacterial agents like the ConvaTec S F-Gel. Dressings are an important part of post treatment care and it is essential that the administrator is thorough with the products they are using to make sure the wound is treated properly.
