OpSite* Post-Op Film Dressing
A low allergy post-operative film dressing comprised of a low adherent absorbent pad and bacterial barrier top film to protect low risk incisions from secondary infection.
Key Features and Benefits
Moisture Responsive Film
OpSite* Post-Op is an absorbent, waterproof and bacteria proof film dressing which is comprised of a moisture responsive film. This allows the film to react in the presence of moisture or water, keeping the skin surface dry helping the OpSite* Post-Operative dressing to stay in place at least twice as long as a non-woven dressing.
The OpSite* Post-Op dressing top film provides a bacterial barrier to protect the incision from bacterial contamination including resistant organisms such as Meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus, helping to prevent surgical site infections.
The OpSite* Post-Op dressing incorporates a waterproof top film allowing patients to shower with the dressing in place to help maintain personal hygiene post-surgery.
The OpSite* Post-Op dressing is conformable and is designed to have a grid adhesive spread and round corners to help minimise the risk of post-operative blistering.
Easy to Apply
The OpSite* Post-Op dressing application handles allow easy application to the incision.
