Sterile and Non-Sterile Swabs for Covering Wounds
Swabs often serve as wound covers in medical wound treatment, and are considered among the most frequently used dressing materials in surgeries, operating theatres and hospitals. Depending on the purpose of the compress, the required swabs can either be sterile, e.g. for covering open wounds, or non-sterile, e.g. for ointment dressings. These multipurpose dressings are not only used for bandaging; in fact, these compresses can also be used as a bandage for haemostasis, where they are placed on the wound and apply pressure on the bleeding area from being fastened with rolled gauze or ideal bandages. Another purpose for compresses is for collecting bodily secretions, such as from highly secreting wounds. For moist wound treatment, we offer special bandages, such as the Suprasorb bandages for treating wounds with sensitive surrounding skin.
Swabs are usually pre-cut into the proper sizes and packaged, ready for use. Swabs are available in various styles and variations:
Impregnated Dressings Treat by Moistening the Wound Area
Absorbent Compresses Reliably Soak Up Wound Moisture
These compresses are used for treating highly secretious wounds. They are able to absorb and hem high amounts of wound exudate.
