More Information

  • How it Works:
    PolyMem Wic Cavity Wound Fillers are hydrophilic polymeric membrane matrix with a pre-slit, perforated design that can be easily separated into three 1” (2.5 cm) wide strips to accommodate the wound bed size.The membrane incorporates a mild, non ionic, nontoxic, tissue friendly cleansing agent that helps maintain a clean wound bed by loosening necrotic tissue, slough, bioburden and other debris.The hydrophilic polymeric membrane matrix, which includes a super absorbent starch copolymer, draws fluid and debris from the wound bed and swells into a non-adherent gel encapsulated inside the dressing.As the exudate is being absorbed,the membrane matrix expands about one-third to fill the wound cavity.Additionally, glycerol (also known as glycerin) helps assure non-adherence to the wound bed so that the dressing can be removed without disturbing the wound bed or causing pain.Glycerol also controls odor while supporting autolytic debridement.
  • Note:
    As this is a wound filler, to be used only as a primary dressing, this configuration comes without the PolyMem thin film backing. Use any other of the appropriate PolyMem configurations as a secondary dressing
