Hydrocoll Sacral Dressings Gelatin-free Hydrocolloid Wounds Ulcers
Hydrocoll Sacral's special shape is used for the treatment of decubital ulcers in the sacral region. Hydrocoll is a self-adherent absorbent hydrocolloid wound dressing with semipermeable cover layer which is impermeable to organisms and water.
The hydrocolloids transform into a gel when in contact with wound exudate and form a moist environment which has a stimulating effect on granulation and epithelialization.
For moist wound treatment of clinically non-infected, slightly to moderately exudating wounds, especially in wounds with poor healing tendency and long-lasting formation of granulation, e.g. in leg ulcers or decubitus; 2nd-degree burns; Hydrocoll sacral is used in the case of decubital ulcers in the sacral region.
Hydrocoll is a sterile, self-adhesive absorbent hydrocolloid wound dressing. - Half the thickness of traditional hydrocolloids with high capacity absorbency - Clarity allows for wound inspection - Plasticiser free, reducing the risk of allergic reaction - Forms a soft gel when in contact with wound exudate
