XtraSorb® is a Super Absorbent Dressing from Derma Sciences for Wound Care. The core for the XtraSorb super-absorbent dressing uses polymer technologies to dramatically improve the capabilities of the dressings versus conventional moist wound dressings. Whereas other absorbent dressings (including foam dressings, ABD pads, and other cellulose-based dressings) rely on spaces within the dressings to fill with fluid, XtraSorb’s super-absorbent polymers bind fluid and convert it to a gel. The XtraSorb advantage over traditional first-line dressings include holding more fluid, reducing the risk of maceration by locking fluid inside the dressing, and keeping harmful wound exudate away from the wound and periwound skin. XtraSorb Dressings provide excellent moisture management as well as balance for wound healing.
XtraSorb HCS is a Hydrogel Dressing that employs a super absorbent polymer-based hybrid of a hydrogel and Hydrocolloid Dressing. The combination of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose and Derma Science’s SAP gel formulation offers wound patients hydration to non-exuding wounds. The XtraSorb HCS Dressing adapts to changing wound conditions.
