1. The ingredients of foam silicone dressings
Foam silicone dressings are disposable sterile polyurethane foam dressings, and contain silicone adhesives, which have water absorption and self-adhesion. They are composed of the following parts: porous soft silicon glue wounds contact layer, water absorption polyurethane foam layer, and the water lock layer with cellulose fiber matrix containing water-absorbing particles, and the outer film of the thermoplastic polyurethane that allows water vapor to pass through, and they can block bacteria and are waterproof. They are sterilized by ethylene oxide and can be disposable used.
2. The indication of foam silicone dressings
The foam silicone dressing is suitable for wet wound healing and the treatment of exudates, which is suitable for a variety of exudate wounds. According to the judgment of medical staff, it can be used for patients who are receiving topical or systemic anti-infective therapy; It is suitable to be used in conjunction with pressure therapy; It can be used together with debridement glue for autolytic debridement of necrotic tissue; It can be applied in the same location for up to 7 days, the length of the time depends on the amount of exudates, the condition of the dressing, and the type of wounds. And you could buy medical dressing supplies online, which is quite safe and convenient.
3. The structure and composition of foam silicone dressings
Foam silicone dressings are composed of back lining, medical foam pads, medical silicone layers, and separated membranes. The back lining is made of polyurethane film, the medical foam pad is made by polyurethane prepolymer foaming, the medical silicone layer is composed of perforated silicone gel film, and the membrane is composed of PE or PET membrane.
No edge thin type, no edge thick type: It is composed of a layer of waterproof and breathable film coated with polyurethane, a polyurethane foam absorption layer, a silicone gel reticular wounds contact layer and a membrane protective layer. It is sterilized by ethylene oxide and provided aseptically.
Edge thin type: It is composed of a layer of waterproof and breathable film coated with polyurethane, a core layer having a two-layer structure, a non-woven layer and polyurethane foam absorption layer, a silicone gel reticular wounds contact layer and a membrane protective layer. It is sterilized by ethylene oxide and provided aseptically.
Edge type: It is composed of a layer of waterproof and breathable film coated with polyurethane, a core layer having three layers of structure, superabsorbent non-woven fabric layer, non-woven fabric layer and polyurethane foam absorption layer, a silicone gel reticular wounds contact layer and a membrane protective layer. It is sterilized by ethylene oxide and provided aseptically.
4. Product properties of foam silicone dressings
The back lining is transparent or brownish yellow, the foam pad is white or light yellow, the surface is smooth, the edge is cut neatly, and the appearance is clean, there should be no damage and foreign matters; The medical silica gel layer is porous and evenly distributed.
The foam silicone dressing, one of the foam dressing products, adopts vertical foaming technology with mature technology. The foam dressing is vertically foamed and its pores are smaller, so the foam is softer and it is not easy to deform under pressure at the same time. In the prevention of pressure ulcers, silicone foam not only can play a good decompression and protection role in the pressure point, but also can provide better protection for the surrounding skin. The special adhesive technology of silicone layer has a good protective effect on the adhesion and peeling of dry skin and fragile skin, which can avoid the skin damage.
Silicone has an irreplaceable advantage as the skin contact layer and can be pasted repeatedly. In the prevention of pressure sores, the silicone foam can be opened at any time to facilitate the timely observation of the skin condition, and it will not affect the continued use of the foam silicone dressing after opening.
