The Burnshield Dressing is an emergency, foam dressing soaked in a sterile gel, supplied in a foil pouch. It absorbs and dissipates heat which minimises burn damage. The dressing provides cooling for pain relief and shock reduction, while also being clear, making it easy to assess the wound.
The gel in the Burnshield Dressing is non-stick and will not adhere to wound. It is a natural anti-bacterial and it reduces infection. The dressing is non-toxic, non-irritant and is also safe to use on Children. This dressing provides heat dissipation and conforms to the wound area. It is as fibreless elastic open-cell foam sheeting for wound covering and it has gel retention.

A burn takes a second to occur and a lifetime to heal if treated incorrectly. The first 24 hours are the most crucial as a burn progresses and deepens over time. Applying Burnshield in the first 24 hours minimises damage.
Burnshield is suitable for all types of burns including fire, thermal & scalding, chemical, radiation and electrical burns.
