Comfeel Plus hydrocolloid dressings are indicated for a wide range of low to moderately exuding wounds. The dressings are indicated for chronic wounds such as leg ulcers and pressure ulcers; and acute wounds such as superficial burns, superficial partial-thickness burns, donor sites, postoperative wounds and skin abrasions. The dressing can stay on for up to 7 days depending on the specific wound characteristics. Comfeel Plus can be used as a primary as well as a secondary dressing.
Comfeel Plus hydrocolloid dressings provide a moist wound healing environment and help protect the wound in the final stages of wound healing. The top film is water- and bacteria proof to help protect the wound from external factors and smooth to help reduce friction. The semi-permeable top film allows moisture to evaporate while maintaining a moist healing environment.
Comfeel Plus hydrocolloid dressings have a mapping grid for wound monitoring and change indication.
Comfeel Plus hydrocolloid dressings have a 3-piece non-touch application system that allows aseptic and controlled application. The turquoise touch points guide the work process. The packaging is designed with life size photos of the dressings for easy product selection and the pouches feature how to use illustrations for optimal guidance.
Mode of action
When the dressing comes into to contact with wound exudate, it forms a viscous gel that absorbs exudate, but does not adhere to the wound bed (1). Excess moisture evaporates through the semi-permeable top film.
Comfeel Plus consists of moisture absorbing sodium carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) particles encapsulated in a synthetic, elastic and sticky mass. Calcium alginate has been added to the dressing to increase absorption. The top film is a semi-permeable polyeurethane film.
Comfeel Plus Transparent is formulated without pectin, known allergens such as latex or colophony, as well as animal derivatives such as gelatine.
