These absorbent dressings have been designed to treat highly exuding wounds and stand out for their properties of retaining large amounts of exudates. Absorbent dressings effectively hold cellular debris and prevent bacteria from entering the wound. The dressing stays dry and comfortable and requires changing less frequently. They do not adhere to the wound bed, thus covering the wound with reduced friction. These dressings are cost effective and lower nursing time and maybe used as primary or secondary dressings to manage surgical incisions, burns, venous leg and skin ulcers and associated conditions, lacerations, abrasions, burns, etc.
