Opsite Post-Op Clear Adhesive Waterproof Dressing is used to dress post-operative wounds, minor cuts, abrasions, lacerations and puncture sites where a waterproof dressing, which aids in the prevention of bacterial contamination, is required.
The OPSITE Post-Op film is impermeable to water and body fluids, allowing the patient to shower without changing dressings.
- Bacterial Barrier
The OPSITE Post-Op film provides a bacterial barrier, helping to reduce the risk of secondary infection.
- High MVTR
OPSITE Post-Op has a unique molecular structure that ‘switches on’ in the presence of moisture, preventing accumulation of moisture underneath the dressing, which reduces bacterial growth and the risk of maceration.
- Transparent Film
The clear film allows the user to monitor the level of fluid and check for infection without removing the dressing, thus increasing wear time.
- Absorbent, Low-adherent Pad
The thick pad is highly absorbent, minimising the number of dressing changes whilst protecting the wound from further injury. The low-adherent wound contact layer leaves the wound site clean and comfortable, reducing pain when changing the dressing.
OPSITE Post-Op is highly conformable, even over the most awkward body contours. Its extensibility does not restrict movement, ensuring that it is comfortable for the patient. The unique dressing carrier keeps the film firm, allowing easy application.
Instructions for use:
- Remove one part of the silicone backing paper (marked “1”) prior to application.
- Position dressing onto the skin and remove the second part of the silicone backing paper. Smooth the dressing down into place, applying light pressure.
- Finally, peel off the dressing carrier (marked “2”).
- Dressing in place.
