Oil Emulsion Dressings are sterile gauze dressings, evenly impregnated with an emulsion blend of petrolatum and sunflower oil. Emulsion blended dressings assist with providing a hydrated wound bed to promote effective healing without unnecessary discomfort. Additionally, exude flows away from the wound, without adhering to granulated tissue, minimizing the risk of skin maceration.
Oil Emulsion dressings are non-occlusive primary dressings best suited for low exuding wounds including donor sites, lacerations, skin grafts and abrasions. Best used beneath an absorbent secondary dressing for wound stages 2, 3 and 4.
