Description

The BSN Cutimed Siltec High Tech Foam Dressing is a sterile atraumatic, super-absorbent silicone foam dressing that is designed to adapt to low, medium and high exudate levels of varying viscosities, even highly viscous exudate. It has quick, vertical absorption that secures fluid retention, even under compression. It has exceptional breathability, and allows for a atraumatic, pain-free dressing change when needed.

The wound contact surface is a perforated silicone layer. This layer allows gentle adherence to the periwound skin but not to the moist wound bed or to the epidermis of the healing wound. The outer film is water-repellent, yet permeable to oxygen and vapour.

TheBSN Cutimed Siltec High Tech Foam Dressing has a foam dressing and an embedded superabsorber that is designed to absorb and to lock away excess wound fluid inside the dressing, promoting a moist wound environment and minimising the risk of maceration of the wound environment. The BSN Cutimed Siltec High Tech Foam Dressing is highly conformable and provides excellent cushioning and protection of the wound. The BSN Cutimed Siltec High Tech Foam Dressing leaves no residue in the wound, and The reliably retains wound exudate, even under compression bandages.
