OpSite Post-Op Visible 6 x 4 inch dressing is an absorbent, transparent pad used as an adhesive wound dressing. OpSite transparent film construction provides the ability to monitor the wound for fluid build up or infection without removing the dressing. Manufactured by Smith & Nephew, Post-Op Visible is easy to apply and use for wound management. The absorbency level is low to moderate. Post-Op Visible dressings are impermeable to external water and body fluids. Wound care patients using the Post-Op dressing may bathe without changing the dressing. This see-through dressing is used for post-operative wounds, lacerations, cuts, abrasions, or minor burns. OpSite Post-Op Dressings allow the skin to breathe and prevent moisture build-up.
Post-Op Visible combines a transparent film dressing with an absorbent dressing pad. Constructed with a low allergy adhesive, OpSite Post-Op Visible dressings reduce the risk of irritation while keeping the dressing fixed in place. Even upon difficult contours of the body, the Post-Op dressing stays in place. OpSite Post-Op Dressings allow the skin to breathe and prevent moisture build-up.
