How does Triad Cream for Wounds work?
Coloplast Triad Wound Dressing works through its unique design and properties to promote optimal wound healing. Here's how it works:
- Hydrophilic Properties: The dressing is hydrophilic, meaning it has an affinity for water and readily absorbs wound exudate (fluid) from the wound bed
- Moisture Management: Once the dressing comes into contact with wound exudate, it absorbs the fluid, transforming into a gel-like consistency. This gel helps maintain a moist environment around the wound, which is known to promote faster and more effective healing
- Moist Wound Healing: The moist environment created by the dressing supports several essential aspects of wound healing. It facilitates the migration of healthy cells, such as fibroblasts, to the wound site, promoting the formation of new tissue (granulation). It also helps prevent the formation of dry scabs, which can impede healing
- Non-Adherent Surface: The Triad cream has a non-adherent surface that minimizes trauma and pain during dressing changes. It prevents the dressing from sticking to the wound bed, reducing the risk of disruption to the healing process and minimizing discomfort for the patient
- Absorbency: The dressing has excellent absorbent capabilities, effectively managing moderate to heavily exuding wounds. It can absorb and retain a significant amount of wound exudate, preventing excessive moisture buildup and reducing the risk of maceration (softening of surrounding skin due to excess moisture)
- Bacterial Barrier: The dressing acts as a protective barrier against external contaminants, reducing the risk of infection. It helps create an environment that is unfavorable for bacterial growth, promoting a clean and sterile wound-healing process

Reapply at least every 5-7 days or as necessary. For wounds needing autolytic debridement, reapply cream layer 1-3 days as needed.
