Product Description

Advazorb® Sacral is an absorbent foam dressing with breathable film backing, soft silicone wound contact layer and adhesive border. It is especially shaped to fit the sacral region securely.

 

The dressing has an absorbent rapid wicking foam moisture locking system for low to medium exudate. The backing is a water resistant barrier film to prevent strike-through with a high moisture vapour transfer rate prolonging wear time.

 

The silicone wound contact layer has pores to allow the passage of exudate into the absorbent foam whilst protecting the fragile wound bed. This combination 

ensures the dressings comfortably stay in place whilst minimising the potential for maceration.

Literature

FAQs
Is Advazorb Border shower proof?
The backing is waterproof. However due to the hydrophobic nature of silicone if water does come between the skin and the contact layer then adherence will be lost. In an average shower it is showerproof, however in a power shower or for a longer period than normal it may not be.
Is there strike through?
No. The backing is waterproof, low friction and prevents strike through.
Which direction does it wick?
Wicking is vertical and lateral, ensuring maximum use of all the foam in the dressing.
Why would I use Advazorb Border instead of Advazorb Silfix?
Advazorb Silfix is ideal for wounds with fragile skin that require a degree of compression/ secondary fixation. Advazorb Border is ideal for hard to dress wounds where secondary fixation isn't possible/ required.
