SanoSkin® First is developed for a quick and efficient treatment of small superficial wounds. SanoSkin® First is a transparent Hydro gel sheet that is able to absorb excess exudate up to 15 times its own weight. It will create a moist wound healing environment and acts bacteriostatic (stops growth of bacteria in the wound). It is covered by a poly urethane film + overlap border and therefore acts as an antibacterial barrier. The special design allows the patient to shower and even swim. The dressing can stay on the wound for several days and allows visual inspection without removing the dressing. The moisture vapor transmission rate (MVTR) of the hydro gel is 1020 g/m²/24 hours. This dressing is ideal for small burns, abrasions and cuts. The size is 74 x 45 mm (with PU overlap), oval shaped, and is packed in a box of 5.
SanoSkin® First is easy to apply on any wound and can stay up to 8 days !
Swimming, showering, bathing is possible.
