Hydrofera Blue Wound Care Benefits

Management of bioburden, removal of devitalized tissue and maintaining moisture balance is important for successful wound management. Hydrofera Blue Antibacterial dressings provide all these in a single dressing.

  • Autolytic Debridement: Use of Hydrofera dressings promotes autolytic debridement.
  • Moisture Management: PVA micro-pore foam structure absorbs and retains fluid. It becomes soft and flexible when moistened and maintains absorbency similar to other highly absorptive dressings.
  • Edge Effect: This dressing assists in the resolution of epibole or flattening of wound edges.
