DeRoyal Polyderm GTL - Silicone Foam Sacral Dressing with Border is a multilayer adhesive dressing that protects sacral wounds and reduces the risk of pressure ulcers. The foam core absorbs fluid to prevent skin breakdown. It is surrounded by an adhesive border that tapers at the edges to prevent it from rolling up off the skin. It can also be adjusted without weakening the adhesive. The top film is water resistant and blocks bacteria. When it is time to change the foam dressing, pain is minimized due to its silicone contact layer. This dressing is latex free.
