LowestGauze dressings for wounds are particularly advantageous for their non-adherent construction and conformability. This wound care product conforms and clings to body contours and displays maximum absorbency powers. Gauze pads are useful for dressing wounds, especially in cases where other fabrics might adhere to the burn or laceration. These medical bandages are non-adherent and because of this they can be used to pack a wound since they prove non-traumatic during dressing change. At HPFY, we have a wide range of gauze dressings and more from top brands like Mckesson, Medline Industries and Cardinal Health etc. 

How to change Gauze Dressings at home?

For the most part, one need not change the wound dressing all by oneself at home. However, everybody should know how to do the same. The process is very simple and does not require anything except a little precaution and diligence.

  1. To change your wound dressing, you need-
  2. Wash your hands properly and pat them dry before putting on the gloves.
  3. Remove the previous wound dressing very slowly and gently using saline water. You must be careful while doing so; you do not want to hamper to the wound.
  4. Now clean the wound with utmost care. Wound cleaning is the stage when the wound site is most prone to getting infected by germs. Therefore, cleaning it in the correct manner is essential. Use a gauze and saline water to do the cleansing. Do it right after removing the used gauze dressing without any delay.
  5. Let the wound dry for a while (do not leave the wound open for too long).
  6. Time to put on the new dressing. Apply the antibiotic ointment first, place the non-stick pad over it. If you want, you can use an extra gauze to provide the wound enough cushioning.
  7. Use medical tape or wrap to secure the wound dressing. Make sure you secure the dressing in such a way that it does not make you uncomfortable after sometime.

How Gauze Dressings work?

Gauze bandage is a medical fabric which is made from the fibers of cotton, polyester, rayon or a combination of all. Gauze bandages protect the wound from bacterial infection and other contaminants while maintaining a moist wound environment to promote healing.

The McKesson Adhesive Sterile Square Island Dressing, offers the convenience of an all-in-one dressing by combining an absorbent non-adherent central pad surrounded by a breathable adhesive border. The non-adherent pad in the center is designed to avoid disrupting the wound bed upon removal.

The Covidien Xeroform Occlusive Petrolatum Gauze Dressing protects wounds and provides a moist wound healing environment. It clings and conforms to all body contours, making it suitable for use in deep and shallow wounds and compression therapy.

Gauze Wound Dressing Features

Gauze dressings are highly versatile and available in varying shapes and sizes. Therefore, they are the most used wound dressings. They can be used in several types of wounds for packing, scrubbing, covering, cleansing and securing.

  • Highly permeable
  • Breathable
  • Non-occlusive

Gauze for wounds is available as squares, sheets, packing strips and rolls. Gauze comes in two forms - woven and non-woven.

Woven gauze has open and loose weaving which makes absorption of exudate easy into the open loose fibers. It allows fluid to easily pass into more absorbent materials. This dressing gauze is available in fine and coarse meshes with varying threat counts. Where debridement is needed, the coarse variety is used. Fine meshes are preferred where packing of a wound is required for providing a sealed skin barrier for skin protection. Woven gauze is best used where higher absorbency levels or drainage is required.

Non-woven gauze is generally made of rayon, polyester or a mix of the two and produces less lint unlike the woven variety. It also leaves fewer fibers on the wound bed plus is softer and stronger than woven gauze. Non-woven gauze is more closely knit like a weave which helps provide stronger absorbency rate and efficient wicking of fluids. It is best used for extra strength or protection.
