Exudate in the wrong amount, of the wrong composition or in the wrong place can delay wound healing1. Some complications from the wrong amount of exudate can lead to skin maceration, wound expansion or delayed healing1,2,3. In addition, this can result in higher wound management costs3through increased material and treatment time and reduced patient quality of life4,5through pain, discomfort or social isolation. Zetuvit® Plus Silicone Border is designed to prevent exudate-related complications. Make Zetuvit®Plus Silicone Border your preferred dressing choice for optimal moisture management2.
Zetuvit® Plus Silicone Border
Silicone superabsorbent dressing with a border for optimal moisture management [6,7]
No additional contact or fixation layer is needed
Zetuvit®Plus Silicone Border benefits from a transparent silicone border that protects the peri woundskin and is designed to keep the peri woundskin area visible, which can be cut to aid application when needed. In addition, Zetuvit®Plus Silicone Border features a backing film6,7, which is showerproof, breathable, bacteria and viral proof12.
The blend of cellulose fluff and fluid retaining superabsorbent particles (SAP) means Zetuvit® Plus Silicone Border, is particularly suitable for treating heavily exuding acute and chronic wounds.
