XTRASORB® Classic Super Absorbent Dressing is a wound dressing.
INTENDED USES: May be used for: pressure, venous, arterial and neuropathic ulcers, post-operative and traumatic wounds and donor sites.
CLAIMED FEATURES: It is a novel super-absorbent wound dressing. At its core is a super-absorbent polymer that allows the dressing to absorb significantly increased amounts of fluid as compared to that of typical highly absorbent dressings. Whereas other absorbent dressings (including foams, ABD pads, and other cellulose based dressings) rely on spaces or cavities within the dressings to fill with fluid, XTRASORB's super absorbent polymer converts fluid within the dressing into a gel. This keeps the fluid bound within the dressing, and away from the patient's skin. As such, the dressing is designed to decrease dressing change frequency, to reduce the risk of maceration, and to protect the patient's skin from harmful components within wound fluid that can impede wound healing. Does not contain natural rubber latex.
OPTIONS: 4" x 5" Non-Adhesive, Pack of 100

Specialty absorptive dressings are those that do not fit into other absorptive surgical dressing categories. They often contain a novel or proprietary material or a combination of cotton, rayon, or cellulose, which acts as a super-absorbent wicking dressing. These dressings are often employed as secondary dressings over highly exudative wounds which require frequent dressing changes due to dressing saturation. Many are designed to allow for change of the specialty absorptive layer only, without disruption or the primary dressing or wound bed. These dressings are convenient for placement outside the primary layer of lower extremity compression wraps to allow the compression to remain in place longer, while still adequately managing wound exudate
