Application and Advantages Methods of Foam Dressings

Foam wound dressing is a medical polyurethane material, similar to a "sponge" texture, and can be used in conjunction with ointments and other dressings. It is an outer dressing used to replace gauze. Like other dressings such as medical surgical dressing, the foam wound dressing is also a popular choice for customers.

1. Wound types applicable to foam wound dressing

(1) Burns and trauma wounds with more early exudation;

(2) Wounds that are prone to pressure, such as bedsores on the sacrococcyx and pressure ulcers on the heel;

(3) Wounds that are not easy to bandage, such as the sacrococcygeal area, joint parts, and head;

(4) Later wounds after the formation of granulation tissue.

2. The advantages of foam wound dressing

The foam dressing has good air permeability, good moisture absorption and anti-infection characteristics. It can absorb wound exudate and reduce wound secretions.

It can form a moist environment on the wound surface, reduce the adhesion between the dressing and the wound granulation tissue, and is beneficial to tissue proliferation and wound repair.

It cleans and keeps the skin of the compressed area, isolates external pollution, protects the exposed nerve endings on the wound, and relieves pain.

The foam wound dressing is moderately hard and soft, which can effectively relieve wound pressure and reduce the incidence of bedsores in bedridden patients.

3. How to use foam wound dressing

The foam dressing can be used independently without adding any drugs, or can be combined with other drugs for better anti-infection or moisturizing effects.

Specific method:

(1) Disinfect the wound first, and then spray growth factors;

(2) Apply ointment to the inner layer of the foam dressing, and then cover the wound with the foam wound dressing;

(3) When necessary, the outer layer can be fixed with tape or bandaged under pressure.
