• Absorbent, atraumatic dressing made from polyurethane foam
• Outer surface of the foam is bonded to a vapor-permeable non-woven border, which acts as a barrier to contamination to facilitate wound management and infection prevention.
• Surrounding border is coated with a layer of medical-grade acrylic that is not coated on the dressing portion that directly interfaces with the surface of the wound; upon removal, will not cause trauma to surrounding fragile skin or delicate new tissue.
• Acrylic layer is pattern-coated for breathability, which facilitates the application and retention of the dressing to intact skin and does not cause epidermal stripping or pain on removal
• Adhesive is "turned off" with a swipe of rubbing alcohol around the border
• Adhesion bond also tends to prevent maceration by inhibiting the lateral movement of exudate from the wound onto the surrounding skin
Comfort Release® dressings are suitable for dressing many types of exuding wounds with surrounding of fragile skin, including leg and pressure ulcers and traumatic wounds resulting in skin loss. It may also be used under compression bandaging. The dressing absorbs exudate and maintains a moist wound healing environment while minimizing the risk of maceration when on and minimizing the risk of skin tears during removal.
The manufacturer has identified no absolute contraindications to the use of Comfort Release®, other than a known allergy to acrylic-based adhesives.
The presence of clinical infection does not preclude the use of Comfort Release® provided that appropriate antimicrobial therapy is also provided.
People with prior skin reactions to acrylic adhesives, skin burns or allergic reactions to rubbing alcohol should not use Comfort Release®.
Store in dry conditions below 35°C (95°F).

Moderate/Highly Exudating Wounds
To remove, simply swipe the dry border area with rubbing alcohol – it is recommended to use one or two alcohol prep pads for each dressing. Large alcohol prep pads are enclosed in every box. If needed, add more alcohol for painless release. The interval between dressing changes should be determined by the degree of wound exudate produced; the dressing may be left undisturbed for several days on clean, lightly exuding wounds.
Comfort Release® by Global Biomedical Technologies is a new, smart-switchable adhesive technology that addresses the pain and risk of injury in bandage removal. Comfort Release® products are available for advanced wound care, acute care and everyday first aid.
