The ReliaMed 4X4 Inch Fenestrated Split Gauze is a highly absorbent gauze sponge designed to keep the area around different drain tubes inserted in the body dry. The gauze is compatible with a variety of different surgical tubes like catheters, IVs, feeding tubes, tracheostomy tubes, etc.
The ReliaMed Drainage Split Gauze Sponge is designed with a slim split that ends in the center of the sponge. This split accommodates the drain tube and ensures a secure fit around it. The sponge is extra fenestrated to ensure that it remains flat around the tube to provide maximum absorption. The fenestration ensures that no air gets trapped during the application which may pucker the sponge and reduce its efficiency. The gauze sponge has a thick six ply non woven construction. This makes the dressing highly absorbent thereby preventing the pooling of fluids around the drain area. The gauze sponge helps eliminate the risk of infection and bacterial growth due to the collection of drainage fluids.
The Drainage Split Gauze by ReliaMed feels incredibly soft on the skin and does not cause any discomfort to the patient even if worn for long periods of time. The sponge is latex-free and hence suitable for people with latex allergies. The sponges are also sterilized and ready to be used right out of the package. The gauze is available individually or in boxes with multiple pieces.
