Made in the USA.

Use on partial-thickness or full-thickness wounds as a primary or secondary dressing, or for a IV dressing.  Designed for acute or chronic minimal exudating wounds, such as surgical incision sites, skin tears, cuts, lacerations and abrasions and to help prevent skin breakdown by friction.  Works as a shower shield.

The center transparent window is made of a waterproof, highly breathable polyurethane material for better wound healing and skin health. This low-level adhesive transparent window is designed for securing IV tubing or a secondary dressing such as a foam,  silver foam, non-stick gauze, collagen, or bioengineered skin substitute pads  placed over the wound.  Patients may bath or shower while Comfort Release® Transparent Dressings provide a waterproof, protective, breathable barrier over the wound bed.  Comfort Release® low-profile dressing lays comfortably on the skin and helps to provide the right moisture balance to promote wound healing and cut down on periwound skin maceration.

The border is made of a nonwoven film with a strong acrylic adhesive. The acrylic is blended with a unique polymer to trigger an easy release from the skin. Wet the adhesive border with rubbing alcohol to trigger the adhesive to release, and you can remove the dressing without pain or discomfort.

To remove: Simply wet the dry dressing border area with (isopropyl) rubbing alcohol.
