These are dressings which hold moisture in the surface of the wound and are perfect for use in many different applications. These types of dressings are non-adhesive to the wound and therefore, soothing by nature. They are good for dry and necrotic wounds and eliminate the need for too much cleaning between dressings. Their high moisture content provides protection from infections by preventing bacteria and oxygen from reaching the affected area. Included in this section are sheet dressings, saline gel, hydrogel gauze, silver hydrogel, gel cast and splint pads from well-known manufacturers like Southwest Technologies, Medline, Covidien, ReliaMed and others.
