OpSite * Post Op Visible

Product Description

OPSITE Post-Op Visible is a transparent film with a unique see-through absorbent pad. The highly breathable film is waterproof and bacteria-resistant, and the unique lattice structure foam pad enables regular wound assessment without the need to lift or remove the dressing.

OPSITE Post-Op Visible is ideal for moderately exuding wounds including invasive surgical wounds, lacerations and abrasions. The low allergy adhesive reduces the risk of irritation and keeps the dressing in place, even over awkward contours.
