Biatain Silicone

Biatain Silicone

Coloplast

Description

A soft, conformable, absorbent polyurethane foam pad with a vapour-permeable film backing and a gentle silicone adhesive border. The dressing contains 3DFit technology which means the foam conforms to the wound bed to fill the gap and reduce pooling of exudate. 

Indications

Indicated for a wide range of low- to highly exuding wounds. This includes acute wounds such as donor sites, post-operative wounds and traumatic wounds; and chronic wounds such as leg ulcers, pressure ulcers and non-infected diabetic foot ulcers. May be used to prevent post-operative blistering. Can be used under compression therapy.

Contraindications

Should not be used on individuals who are sensitive to or have had an allergic reaction to the dressing or its compounds. Do not use with oxidising solutions such as hypochlorite and hydrogen peroxide solutions. Ensure that any other evaporating solution is completely dried off before dressing application.
