Island dressings provide post-operative protection for acute surgical incisions. Comprising an absorbent pad with an adhesive backing, island dressings absorb excess wound fluid, maintain a sterile environment and provide a protective barrier against further trauma. OpSite* Post-Op is a revolutionary post-operative FILM ISLAND 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. Features:

  • Bacterial barrier - Protects the site against extrinsic contamination, reducing the risk of infection by bacteria.
  • Waterproof film - Patient can shower with the dressing in situ.
  • Low allergy adhesive - A unique grid pattern adhesive minimising the risk of an allergic response.
  • Highly absorbent pad - Rapidly absorbs serous exudate. Allows lateral spread across the pad to maximise absorbency and reduce the risk of skin maceration.
  • Low adherence - The wound contact layer enables exudate to pass through to allow minimal trauma on removal.
  • Conformable - Comfortable and non-obtrusive for the patient.
  • High MVTR - The patented REACTIC* film has a unique molecular structure with an MVTR of 11000g/m 2 /24hr 3 , making it significantly more permeable to water vapour than ordinary films in the presence of moisture.
  • Round corners/thin film - Reduces occurrence of lifting or snag, helping the dressing to stay in place for longer.
