Petrolium Gauze Impregnated Non-Adhering Dressings
Petrolatum impregnated dressings are designed to provide non-adherent packing for full-thickness wounds, providing a moist environment that is conducive to wound healing. They are made of fine, soft, conformable gauze impregnated with white petrolatum. Being non-adherent, removal of these dressings causes minimal trauma to the wound bed and patient. Indicated for use of management of full-thickness chronic wounds such as stage II-IV pressure ulcers, tunneling wounds and non-infected wounds. The "overwrap" version of these dressings provides an additional layer of sterility for use in environments such as operating rooms. Does not contain natural rubber latex.
