Essimed superabsorbent is a sterile, superabsorbent wound dressing for use on wounds with high to excessive amounts of exudate. The dressing consists of a superabsorbent core, a clear perforated polyethylene wound contact layer, and a hydrophobic backing.
Essimed superabsorbent absorbs exudate, this reduces the risk of maceration and damage to the periwound while helping maintain a moist wound environment. Fluids are absorbed and retained within the dressing. As a result of its high absorbency Essimed superabsorbent helps decrease dressing change intervals.
The perforated wound contact layer does not adhere to the wound and the non-woven backing layer forms a protective barrier preventing exudate leakage. The dressing is also effective under pressure.
Essimed superabsorbent is indicated for chronic or secondary healing wounds with high to excessive exudate levels, e.g. venous leg ulcers, arterial leg ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers and similar types of wounds.
- Highly absorbent under pressure
- Retains fluid
- Minimal trauma at dressing change
