Essity (T/A BSN medical)


Very high absorption capacity with Hydration Response Technology (HRT); this dressing combines a hypoallergenic polypropylene outer sheath with an inner core consisting of superabsorbent polymers and cellulose. Can be used under compression. Suitable for wounds that require a longer wear time.


Management of wounds with high to very high exudate levels


No contraindications are currently known, but avoid using on wounds with very little or no fluids (risk of drying and adhesion). Only apply to tunnel cavities under appropriate monitoring conditions as the product expands as it absorbs fluids.
