The No. 8 Wound Dressing from Reliance Medical is a low adherent sterile wound pad with a soft conforming stretch bandage. In comparison to Standard dressings most familiar to first aiders in the workplace for many years as part of earlier kits, this range freshens the family by upgrading the quality substantially from products of old. Featuring more absorbent pads with a natural low-adherence and a soft, gentle, stretch conforming bandage replacing the traditional harsh and unyielding white open weave, these wound dressings are now as relevant and useful today as they were when first introduced decades ago. These dressings are available in three approved sizes and are approved for mandatory first aid kits.
Size: 7.5cm x 10cm.
The No. 8 Wound Dressing is used to provide protection to a wound to avoid contamination or infection.
