034-8979 Sorbsan Packing Dressing 30cm/2g (pack of 5)

Calcium Alginate Cavity Wound Dressing.

Sorbsan’s properties make it ideal for managing cavity wounds; the fibres absorb exudate and form a gel which fully contours the wound. The gel can be irrigated away from the wound with normal saline 0.9% for pain free removal.  Sorbsan Packing dressings come with a plastic probe to help assess the wound before dressing.

When to use Sorbsan Packing:

Sorbsan Packing is suitable for the management of larger, wet cavity wounds where there is a moderate to high level of exudate. If the wound is not producing high enough exudate levels to gel the Sorbsan dressing’s fibres, it may be appropriate to change to a different dressing type. Sorbsan Ribbon and Packing are suitable for the management of abscesses and sinus’ resulting from:

  • Pilonidal sinus’
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Post-operative wounds
  • Fungating lesions
