– HETIS PU FOAM is a sterile foam dressing, 5mm thickness, 2 layers structure:
- The upper layer (in contact with the air) is a semi-permeable PU film (polyurethane film) that prevents water & microorganisms from entering the wound but still allows steam to escape and exchange oxygen (MVTR (moisture transmitted steam ratio) ≥9000 g/m2.24 hours).
- The lower layer (in contact with the wound) is PU foam (polyurethane foam) with hydrophilic properties, high ability to absorb exudate (11 – 18g fluid/g dressing) and retain exudate in wound dressing, helping to limit the number of times to change dressing.
– The dressing is designed to not stick to the wound and help maintain a moist wound healing environment.
– HETIS PU Foam has a soft, flexible foam layer that helps patients feel comfortable to use, painless when changing dressing.
– The product is sterilized by gamma rays, each piece is contained in a separate sterile bag.
– The product is convenient, easy to use and manipulate.
- Feature: HETIS PU FOAM is used to absorb fluid, maintain a moist environment and stimulate the growth of granulation tissue to help wounds heal quickly.
- Indications for use: HETIS PU FOAM is indicated for moderate to heavy exudative wounds such as: chronic wounds, traumatic wounds, postoperative wounds, skin grafts...
- Clean the wound and surrounding areas with a specialized solution. If using hydrogen peroxide to wash the wound, it is necessary to rinse it with physiological saline before placing dressing on the wound bed.
- Select the dressing suitable for each location, size and shape of the wound bed.
- Remove the dressing from the package.
- Place the sponge side of the foam dressing in direct contact with the wound bed, making sure the dressing covers the entire wound bed as well as the surrounding skin.
- Use polyurethane film dressing or tape to protect and secure the dressing.
- The frequency of dressing changes depends on the location, type, and the extent of the wound's discharge and as prescribed by the treating doctor.
- Need to combine with a secondary dressing such as transparent film dressing or tape to fix.
- Do not use with oxidizing agents such as H2O2 (hydrogen oxygen) because these substances can affect the structure, properties and effectiveness of the product.
- When changing the dressing, if the dressing sticks to the wound bed, use physiological saline to wet it, then gently lift the dressing out of the wound bed.
- Do not use the product when the packaging is torn or damaged.
