OpSite Post-Op Visible 10 x 4 inch dressing are designed to allow monitoring of the wound site for infection or fluid build up without removing the dressing. You can also monitor the healing process without distrubing the dressing. Incorporating an absorbent, transparent pad, the OpSite Post-Op Visible offers a low to moderate absorbency level. OpSite Post-Op Dressings allow the skin to breathe and prevent moisture build-up. This see-through dressing is used for post-operative wounds, lacerations, cuts, abrasions, or minor burns.
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. Wounds located around difficult contours of the body may still served by the Post-Op dressing which is flexible, conformable and stays in place. Manufactured by Smith & Nephew, Post-Op Visible is easy to apply and use for wound management. 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.
