Gelling Fibre Dressing
Manufacturer: Smith & Nephew
DURAFIBER is a highly absorbent, non-woven, gelling filler dressing.The dressing is soft and conformable, designed to rapidly form a clear, cool gel on contact with wound fluid. This gel absorbs excess fluid, locking exudate away from the wound while providing a moist environment to support autolytic debridement for up to 7 days.DURAFIBER is indicated for chronic and acute, full or partial thickness, or shallow granulating exuding wounds including leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers, surgical wounds, wounds left to heal by secondary intent, donor sites, tunneling and fistula wounds, partial thickness burns, traumatic wounds, and wounds that are prone to bleeding such as wounds that have been surgically or mechanically debrided.
