Foam Dressings Protection Status

Foam dressings are often sheet, but may be available in other shapes, of foamed polymer solutions (most commonly polyurethane) with small, open cells capable of holding fluids. They may be impregnated or layered in combination with other materials. The absorption capability depends on its thickness and composition. The area in contact with the wound surface is non-adhesive for easy removal. Available with an adhesive border and/or a transparent film coating that acts as a bacterial barrier. Indicated for partial- and full-thickness wounds. Some dressings are indicated for pressure injury prevention when used as part of a broader pressure injury prevention protocol.
