ActivHeal Tracheostomy Foam

Advanced Medical Solutions

Description

A soft, conformable, absorbent two-layer dressing consisting of a polyurethane foam pad and a polyurethane membrane with an acrylic adhesive border. The foam pad absorbs wound exudate vertically into the dressing, where it is retained. The waterproof membrane allows transpiration of the exudate to aid the dressing's fluid handling capacity.

Indications

Moderate to heavily exudating wounds such as pressure ulcers, leg ulcers, diabetic ulcers, postoperative surgical wounds, cavity wounds (as a secondary dressing), lacerations, abrasions, graft and donor sites, and superficial- and partial-thickness burns.

Contraindications

Not indicated to control heavy bleeding.
