Fibrosol® dressings are Carboxymethyl cellulose nonwoven dressings.
Fibrosol® Foam Gentle or Fibrosol® Extra Foam Gentle: is composed of soft absorbent polyurethane foam laminated to a Fibrosol® Non adhesive or Fibrosol® Extra Non adhesive layer placed as an island pad under a waterproof, virus proof and bacteria proof polyurethane film coated with silicone adhesive that allow gentle dressing removal without pain. The silicone adhesive layer is present either as a border surrounding the dressing or as a perforated layer covering the whole dressing.
The characteristics of the fiber are such that it absorbs when it comes into intimate contact with liquid not via the usual mechanism of capillary action. Absorbed fluid is retained within the structure of the fiber. As Fibrosol® absorbs exudate it is rapidly converted from a dry dressing to a soft coherent gel. Fibrosol® maintains a moist environment for optimal wound healing, aids autolytic debridement, and is easily removed with little or no damage to newly formed tissue.
Provides excellent absorption and retention capabilities for moderate to highly exuding wounds.
Conforms to the wound surface to form an intimate contact.
Acts as a bacterial and viral barrier that prevents outer wound infection.
Helps reduce wound pain while the dressing is in situ and upon removal.
Supports wound healing by providing a moist wound healing environment.
