Primapore* is a soft conformable dressing that can be used to cover all wounds, particularly those in curved areas of the body, such as surgical wounds or general cuts and lacerations.
Consists of a Melolin type pad and a water-resistant low allergy Hypafix backing.
• Soft breathable cover
• Highly absorbent pad
• Low Allergy Adhesive
• Conformable pad and cover
Highly absorbent and low-adherent pad
The polyester wound contact layer on the Melolin pad enables the passage of blood or exudate into the highly absorbent pad and minimal pain on dressing removal.
Safe and Secure Fixation
The low allergy acrylic adhesive is evenly spread onto the non-woven backing surface providing a safe and secure dressing fixation over the wound site.
Soft and Conformable
Ensures patient comfort and conformability to all wound sites (even the more difficult areas like shoulders and axillae).
Ease of use
The protector paper, which is slit across the width of the dressing, enables quick application without the risk of touching the absorbent pad or adhesive area with fingers or forceps. The easily opened packaging facilitates the aseptic dressing technique.
The thick pad minimizes fluid strike-through and helps to protect the wound from trauma.
Primapore Sterile Adhesive Wound Dressings are ideally suited for postoperative use. They are also useful in Accident & Emergency for cuts,
lacerations and sutured wounds.
Contraindications / Precautions
- Change dressing daily or more often according to the condition of the wound.
- As with all adhesive products apply and remove carefully from sensitive or fragile skin.
- Seek medical advice immediately for all serious wounds and burns, or if redness or discomfort occurs.
Instruction for Use:
Select the appropriate dressing size for a wound.
Remove the outer wrapper and pull back one part of the backing paper of the dressing.
Anchor the dressing on one side of the wound.
Remove the other half of the backing paper and smooth the adhesive border into place.
Change as required, depending on how much the wound is oozing, approximately five days.
