Smith and Nephew Opsite Post-Op Wound DressingWC1003
A low-allergenic, highly-absorbable, waterproof dressing solution - the highly popular Opsite Post-Op!
Smith and Nephew's extensive clinical research and product development team have developed this effective, high quality dressing. Opsite Post-Op is a waterproof and bacteria proof adhesive dressing.
It consists of a highly absorbent low adherent pad (like Melolin), covered by an advanced highly breathable film. Opsite Post-Op also offers a bacterial barrier that protects the site against extrinsic contamination, reducing the risk of infection by bacteria, including Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureaus (MRSA).
The low adherence wound contact layer enables exudate to pass through to allow minimal trauma on removal, ensuring your patients comfort. The conformable and extensible film is comfortable and non-obtrusive. This reduces patient risk of skin blistering in joint surgery.
The REACTIC* film within this dressing has a unique molecular structure with an MVTR of approximately 11000g/m2 /24hr, making it significantly more permeable to water vapour than ordinary films. In the presence of moisture, Opsite Post- Op's round thin corners reduce the occurrence of lifting or snagging, helping the dressing to stay in place for longer.
Comes in a wide range of different sizes, allowing you to find the one that best suits your needs!
