Smith And Nephew Solosite Hydrogel Wound Gel 3 Oz
Hydrogel dressing consisting of polyvinyl pyrrolidone in water, the gel is supported by a fusible fibre scrim and protected on both sides by polyethylene film.
An amorphous hydrogel creates a moist wound environment and is non-cytotoxic. The polymer used is water swell able allowing it to absorb exudate yet remain gel-like until saturated. This allows to remain on the wound longer than gels using water-miscible (soluble) polymers.
