Xeroform® Occlusive Dressing
Xeroform® Occlusive Dressing is a sterile, non-adhering protective dressing consisting of absorbent, fine-mesh gauze impregnated with a petrolatum blend. 3% bismuth tribromophenate blend formula provides bacteriostatic protection.
• Clings and conforms for compression therapy and use in deep and shallow wounds
• Non-adherent to reduce trauma to the wound and patient upon removal
• Non-occlusive dressing allows wound to breathe
• Bacteriostatic action in light exudating wounds
Xeroform® Occlusive Dressing is intended for use as a primary contact layer in dressing wounds such as lacerations, skin graft recipient sites, newly sutured wounds, abrasions, and minor or partial-thickness burns. It may also be used as an initial layer in dressing surgical wounds with light exudate where mild medication and deodorization are desired.
Irritation may develop with a history of atopy (predisposition to hypersensitivity) or if sensitivity to Bismuth Tribromophenate exists.
