GeriGentle Waterproof Composite Dressing is a sterile, multi-layered foam dressing that provides a warm moist healing environment. The waterproof top layer acts as a bacterial barrier, protecting the wound from any outside liquids that can cause infection. The inner foam layer absorbs drainage, while the low-adherent contact layer and adhesive non-woven fabric border provide protection to the wound bed and are gentle on the skin.
Composite dressings can be used as a primary or secondary dressing to help treat patients with acute or chronic wounds such as pressure sores, leg ulcers, and withdrawn I.V. sites of partial to full thickness at wound stages 2, 3, and 4.
