• Super absorbent polymers bind wound drainage and convert it to a gel • Holds more fluid, locking fluid inside the dressing, helping to decrease the risk of maceration and keeping the harmful wound fluid components away from the wound and periwound skin • Can be used as a primary or secondary dressing for moderate to heavy exudate • Contains protective outer layer and non-adherent wound contact layer for easy removal


McKesson Super Absorbent Dressing is indicated for use as a primary dressing or secondary dressing for partial-thickness or full-thickness wounds. Use where there is moderate to large amounts of drainage and extra absorbency is needed to help better manage the fluid and decrease frequency of dressing changes. Excellent dressing for use under compression for heavily draining venous leg ulcers.


Not intended for use on patients with a known hypersensitivity to the product itself or to its components, including the sodium polyacrylate super absorbent polymer. Not for use in tunneling wound pockets, as the dressing can expand considerably when wound exudates are absorbed. Not for use on wounds with little to no exudate, as this may cause drying out of the wound.
