Composite wound dressings combine different types of dressings with several functions in one single dressing that can address different needs. They can be used directly on the wound or on top of a dressing that is in direct contact with the wound. They can have a layer that absorbs fluid from the wound and another that works as a waterproof barrier. Their waterproof nature makes them a popular choice for areas exposed to excessive moist due to incontinence. These versatile dressings protect against bacteria and other contaminants, and are easy to apply and to remove.

What are composite dressings used for? 

Composite dressings can be used as a dressing for wounds and/or ulcers that are shallow (only part of the superficial layer of the skin is lost) or deep (fat layer below the skin is involved). The wound typically will have small or moderate amounts of liquid coming out of the wound (drainage). It can be used both on infected or non-infected wounds, if under the care of a healthcare professional. If your healthcare professional thinks the wound is infected, composite dressings may be used, but with caution and frequent inspection.
