Its shape make it suitable for use with items such as catheters and drainage tubes, with the slit providing a good fit at the exit points of tubes. Management of moderate to highly exuding wounds.


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 activities under appropriate monitoring conditions as the product expands as it absorbs fluids.
