Comfeel Plus Ulcer Dressing consists of a semipermeable polyurethane film coated with a flexible, cross-linked adhesive mass containing sodium carboxymethylcellulose and calcium alginate as the principal absorbent and gel forming agents. The dressing is permeable to water vapour but impermeable to exudate and microorganisms. In the presence of exudate, the absorbent components absorb liquid and swell to form a cohesive gel. The dressing is waterproof and the patient may bathe or shower with it in place.
Comfeel Plus Ulcer Dressing can be used in the management of low to moderate exuding venous leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, superficial burns, superficial partial - thickness burns, donor sites, postoperative wounds and skin abrasions. It can also be used to rehydrate necrotic tissue, which is then removed by autolysis.
