OPSITE Post-Op Visible

Waterproof, Bacteria-proof Dressing with See-through Absorbent Pad

Overview

Description

OPSITE Post-Op Visible is a waterproof, bacteria proof dressing with a see-through absorbent pad.


Indications

To dress acute wounds such as:

  • Post-operative wounds
  • Lacerations
  • Cuts
  • Abrasions
  • Minor burns where levels of exudate are low / moderate


Precautions

  • Use only on dry skin prepared in accordance with normal procedures.
  • Do not stack dressings, or allow the dressings to overlap.
  • Periodically monitor the dressing and wound site to confirm that the dressing is securely attached, especially after showering, or if the dressing becomes wet. If the dressing comes off, apply a new dressing.
  • As with all adhesive products, apply and remove carefully from sensitive or fragile skin.
  • The dressing should not be used under compressive dressings or garments as blistering or transient bruising may appear on the skin under the foam lattice pad.
  • Pressure applied to the dressing as a result of direct body weight may result in transient bruising or indentation markings on the skin in the pattern of the lattice foam pad.
  • On removing the dressing slight patterning from the lattice foam pad may be visible on the skin. This is normal and should fade within a few hours.
