OpSite Post-Op Visible 4 x 3-1/8 inch dressing is a transparent, absorbent pad for use as a adhesive wound dressing. This see-through dressing is used for post-operative wounds, lacerations, cuts, abrasions, or minor burns. The exudate absorbency level is low to moderate. Manufactured by Smith & Nephew, Post-Op Transparent Film is easy to apply and use for excellent wound management. OpSite Post-Op Dressings allow the skin to breathe and prevent moisture build-up. Post-Op dressings are impermeable to water and body fluids and protect the skin underneath the dressing. Wound patients using the Post-Op dressing may bathe without changing the dressing. Even upon difficult contours of the body, the Post-Op dressing stays in place.
Post-Op Visible combines a transparent film dressing with an absorbent dressing pad. OpSite Post-Op Dressings allow the skin to breathe and prevent moisture build-up. Constructed with a low allergy adhesive, OpSite Post-Op Visible dressings reduce the risk of irritation while keeping the dressing in place. These dressings are easy to apply. OpSite transparent film construction provides the ability to monitor the wound for fluid build up or infection without removing the dressing.
