Composite dressings are multi-layered dressings which combine physically distinct components into a single one. These can be used as primary dressings - over sutures, skin tears, etc - or as secondary dressings - with impregnated gauzes or wound fillers. They are indicated for low-to-moderate exudates and can be applied without much effort. Being conformable in nature they are versatile for use with most types of wounds. Cost effective and easy to use, composite dressing stretches with the skin to promote long wear time and provides protection from infection.
