Specialty Absorbent Dressings
Manufacturer: Smith & Nephew
PRIMAPORE is a conformable adhesive dressing consisting of a breathable non-woven top layer and a low-adherent absorbent pad. PRIMAPORE is indicated for post-operative wounds, minor cuts, abrasions, lacerations and puncture sites.
Features and Benefits
The dressing is soft and conformable ensuring patient comfort.
The flexible non-woven layer will not restrict bodily movements when in place and helps to ensure conformability to all wound sites.
- Highly absorbent pad
The dressing consists of a highly absorbent pad, maximizing the
passage of blood and exudate into the dressings helping to maintain
a good healing environment whilst at the same time minimizing the
risk of fluid strike-through.
- Low adherent wound contact layer
The pad has a low adherent wound contact layer which helps to
minimize disruption or trauma to the underlying tissue on removal of
the dressing, which helps to reduce the risk of pain on removal.
