EXU-DRY is an Anti-Sheer Absorbent Dressing.
INTENDED USES: Indicated for exudate absorption and the management of partial to full-thickness wounds. Some typical wounds are: Ulcers (venous, arterial, diabetic), Pressure sores
Donor sites, Surgical incisions, Surgical excisions, Burns (1st and 2nd degree).
CLAIMED FEATURES: It is a one-piece wound dressing made up of multiple layers. Outer Layer - High density polyethylene. Inner Layers - Highly absorbent rayon/cellulose blend. Anti Shear Layer - High density polyethylene. Wound Contact Layer - High density polyethylene. It is a unique one-piece wound dressing designed to cover the wound with reduced friction, save nursing time and lower total dressing costs. EXU DRY replaces non-adherent dressings, gauze and abdominal pads. Non-adherent to the wound, EXU DRY is more comfortable for patients during and between dressing changes. EXU DRY's Anti Shear Layer helps reduce shearing thus may help protect fragile granulation tissue. EXU DRY's one-piece, multi-layer sealed construction eliminates frayed edges, loose threads and linting. EXU DRY minimizes disruption to new granulation tissue.Highly absorbent, EXU DRY helps reduce the risk of maceration and irritation to the wound and surrounding tissue. EXU DRY wicks away drainage from the wound into the entire dressing, reducing the frequency of dressing changes. Non-occlusive, soft and pliable, EXU DRY is available in a wide range of sizes and shapes to accommodate virtually any wound or body contour. Because EXU DRY is permeable and non-occlusive, it can be used as a wet or dry dressing on clean or contaminated wounds. EXU DRY is compatible with most topical agents, liquids and creams.
OPTIONS: 3 Disc, Medium Absorbency, Case 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
