Pharma-Foam C Comfort is made of soft, thick and elastic polyurethane foam, placed as an island pad on a breathable polyurethane adhesive border to allow fixation without secondary dressing or fixation tape. Moreover, the foam central pad is laminated with perforated polyurethane film wound contact layer to prevent adherence of foam pad to the wound bed, thus it allows easy removal without pain or trauma.
Also, there is a nonwoven layer containing activated charcoal, sandwiched between the outermost adhesive polyurethane border and polyurethane foam.
Presence of Activated Charcoal cloth traps bacteria and adsorbs bacterial toxins and malodour.
Polyurethane foam provides a cushioning effect and high absorption capacity up to 14 g/g. This provides dry but moist environment which is in favour of all wound healing stages specially the granulation and the epithelialisation phase, so it accelerates wound healing.
The polyurethane film outermost layer is highly breathable, up to 5000 g/m2/24hr MVTR. This allows evaporation of wound exudates absorbed by foam, thus the total fluid uptake and fluid handling capacity of the dressing in total is increased. It is also bacteria proof, virus proof and waterproof.
The activated charcoal cloth adsorbs bacterial toxins and malodours. This improves the quality of life for the patient and nursing personnel.
The perforated polyurethane film in Pharma-Foam C Comfort prevents adherence of the foam pad to the wound bed, thus it allows easy removal without pain or trauma. Furthermore, it acts as a filter for thick exudates and slough which are more likely to block the foam surface and hinder its absorption capacity.
