Kendall™ Hydrogel Dressing
Kendall™ Hydrogel Dressing has a unique disc shape that resembles wound margins, aiding in conformability. High absorbent capacity and high MVTR aid in excess fluid management.
• Absorbent and will not dry out for longer wear time and fewer dressing changes
• Translucent gel allows wound visualization without removing dressing
• Disk shape maximizes wound coverage and helps fill shallow cavities
• Protects wound as it provides a moist wound healing environment
• Cooling sensation helps reduce pain upon dressing change
• Dressing may be cut to size
Kendall™ Hydrogel Dressing is indicated for use on light- to moderate-draining wounds; partial- and full-thickness wounds; skin tears; donor sites; pressure, neuropathic (diabetic) and venous insufficiency ulcers; and first- and second-degree burns.
Contraindicated for infected wounds and wounds with heavy drainage.
