Smith and Nephew Opsite Wound Dressings
Opsite is a brand of wound care products from Smith & Nephew. Opsite dressings provide a moist wound environment which promote healing but they also allow excess moisture to evaporate. Excess moisture can cause skin maceration. They are made from a transparent material that allows you to monitor the conditon of your wound which helps increase wear time. This flexible material is ideal for use on awkward areas of the body. There is also a grid printed on the film, which acts as a guide if you need to trim the dressing to a different size. Some Opsite bandages have a pad attached to the adhesive film to absorb exudate and act as a cushion over the wound. [More]
