Key design features:A non-stick polyurethane film contact layer, which is non-adherent and permeable to fluid. This helps to keep underlying skin dry and provides minimum adhesion to the stoma site, which increases patient comfort and minimalises pain at dressing change.
High performing absorbent centre layer composed of Polyurethane Foam. This draws secretions away from the skin through a capillary action.
A semi-permeable Polyurethane Net-Film backing layer. This provides an effective seal which retains absorbed secretions from the Tracheostoma within the dressing whilst permitting the passage of air and water vapour to/from the underlying skin.
The Polyurethane Net layer gives additional stability to the shape of the dressing when saturated, by preventing it from curling up around the edges, away from the skin.
