OpSite* Post-Op is a revolutionary post-operative dressing combining a high Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate (MVTR) film and the cushioning and absorbency of a low adherent pad together with an easy application carrier system. The hydrophilic polyurethane film on OpSite Post-Op has REACTIC* properties that 'switch on' in the presence of moisture allowing any excess to transpire into the atmosphere.
The OPSITE Post-Op film is impermeable to water and body fluids, allowing the patient to shower without changing dressings.
- Bacterial Barrier
The OPSITE Post-Op film provides a bacterial barrier, helping to reduce the risk of secondary infection.
- High MVTR
OPSITE Post-Op has a unique molecular structure that ‘switches on' in the presence of moisture, preventing accumulation of moisture underneath the dressing, which reduces bacterial growth and the risk of maceration.
- Transparent Film
The clear film allows the user to monitor the level of fluid and check for infection without removing the dressing, thus increasing wear time.
- Absorbent, Low-adherent Pad
The thick pad is highly absorbent, minimising the number of dressing changes whilst protecting the wound from further injury. The low-adherent wound contact layer leaves the wound site clean and comfortable, reducing pain when changing the dressing.
OPSITE Post-Op is highly conformable, even over the most awkward body contours. Its extensibility does not restrict movement, ensuring that it is comfortable for the patient. The unique dressing carrier keeps the film firm, allowing easy application.
