One layer of Super Absorbent Pad is equal to 36 layers of medical gauze. Maintains a moist wound healing environment. Anti-seepage to prevent wound from leaking. The structure of the pad allows for breathability of moisture and oxygen for wound healing. A great alternative to ABD pads. Lowers the frequency of dressing changes. Helps to relieve edema from the wound by creating a micro-negative pressure environment to stimulate white blood cell and fiber cell growth factors to accelerate wound healing.
