Atrauman Silicone is a single-use wound contact layer for the treatment of superficial, acute and chronic, slightly to moderately exuding wounds, only applied by professional users. Atrauman Silicone may be applied as a primary dressing in combination with an absorbent secondary wound dressing. Atrauman Silicone functions as protection before adhering the secondary dressing or the negative pressure dressing over the wound. This wound contact layer is permeable for exudate. Furthermore, Atrauman Silicone may be applied as a protective layer on non-exuding wounds and on sites with sensitive skin.
