Product Information

Contact layer dressings are thin, non-adherent sheets placed on the entire wound to prevent adhesion of the overlying dressing to the wound. They are porous and allow the fluid that comes from the wound to be absorbed by the overlying dressing. They are not meant to be changed with every dressing change and can be left in place for a week.  Because they are designed to be non-adherent and skin-friendly, a wound contact layer is ideally suited for wounds where the skin tissue surrounding the wound bed is fragile. They are indicated for moderate to heavily exuding wounds.
