What is an ABD dressing?

Abdominal pads or laparotomy pad is a dressing used to absorb discharges from abdominal wounds or packing abdominal viscera to increase exposure during surgery. Abdominal Pads are also known as ABD Dressings, are often preferred for large wounds or for highly exuding wounds that require high absorbency. Abdominal (ABD) dressings originated from the military, where they are used to treat battle wounds. ABD is an acronym for “Army Battle Dressing.” ABD wound dressings are made with a thick absorbent layer of gauze that disperses fluids to keep them from accumulating upon the wound site. The edges of ABD dressings are sealed, and the dressing back is specially designed to prevent strike-through.

What are the features of ABD Dressings?

  • Super absorbent
  • Soft non-woven exterior layer that draws off fluid to the cellulose center in a speedy manner
  • Middle thick cellulose layer to rapidly soak up and spread over fluids to avoid pooling
  • Hydrophobic back resists strike through
  • Peripheries are sealed to avoid linting
  • Provide Infection protection
  • Avoids the growth of moist routes that can cause contamination.
