Do you sell wound care products in individual packs?
Although we do have some items we sell individually, most of our wound care products are sold by the case.
If the product is non-sterile is it safe to use?
Yes, although non-sterile products are more often used for closed wounds, they are great for providing soft cushioning support, protective barriers, wraps to secure sterile dressings, or coverage for a bruise or any other related wound. Sterile products are often more expensive, so purchasing non-sterile products can be more cost-effective for a healthcare facility that does not often see open wounds, or surgical incisions.
What does non-woven mean?
Non-woven products are formed of a fabric-like material made from staple fibers (short) and long fibers (continuous long), that are bonded together by chemical, mechanical, heat, or solvent treatment. The term is used in the textile manufacturing industry to denote fabrics, such as felt, which are neither woven nor knitted.
What is the difference between gauze and wound dressings?
A wound dressing is an applied layer that covers, protects, and absorbs moisture. While gauze can be used as a dressing, it is usually used to hold the primary dressing in place.
What are packing strips used for?
Packing strips are used when a wound is very deep under the skin. Packing a deep wound allows it to heal properly on the inside and not just on the surface. If you feel your injury requires packing, please consult your doctor before attempting to treat the wound yourself.
