The webinar discusses the clinical benefits of XTRASORB®, a SAP-based line of next generation advanced wound care dressings. These benefits not only include superior absorption, but also a fluid-locking capability within the dressings. Locking fluid within dressings can help to prevent maceration and keep the harmful components of wound fluid away from the wound and surrounding tissue.
Advanced technology dressings that redefine... absorption, fluid handling and moisture management
XTRASORB® is a line of novel super-absorbent wound dressings. The core super-absorbent polymer technologies dramatically improve the capabilities of the dressings versus conventional moist wound dressings. Whereas other absorbent dressings (including foams, ABD pads, and other cellulose-based dressings) rely on spaces within the dressings to fill with fluid, XTRASORB®’s super-absorbent polymers bind fluid and convert it to a gel. The distinct advantages this offers over traditional first-line dressings are:
My doctor uses XTRASORB® on my draining, diabetic foot wounds. The product is amazing in how much it can absorb and reduce odor. Some of my wounds have been nasty, to say the least, and with a lot of oozing. The XTRASORB® Classic did not fail me even when I needed to keep the product on under compression or in a TCC-EZ® cast for multiple days. I am so thankful for these products.
