These all-in-one type dressings can be used as either primary or secondary dressings. They are considered a lower cost-per-unit alternative for when absorptive dressings are required. The product is comprised of a non-adherent, absoprtive central pad, with a soft conformable layer of gauze as a backing. There is a skin friendly adhesive border around the perimeter. The dressing has an outer film layer over the soft gauze. This allows the barrier dressing to be waterproof, while also acting as a barrier to external contaminants. Latex Free.
