With Invested Medical's selection of medical-grade absorbent dressings, you can ensure injuries are kept clean, and comfortable beneath a protective layer of soft, highly absorbent bandages.


The sort of absorbent dressing you need will depend on the type of wound, its form, and the type of wound fluid (exudate) that needs to be absorbed. If you're not sure what to look for when choosing the best absorbent wound dressing for a patient, or an emergency first aid kit, consider the following:


For large, open wounds — Combine dressings are best for severe wounds, as they can be used to apply direct pressure to control bleeding and to pack deep wounds before bandaging.


For sensitive injuries — Open wounds with light to moderate bleeding and/or wound fluid are best treated with non-adherent absorbent wound dressings, which are designed to avoid sticking to a wound as it heals. A non-adherent wound dressing is also recommended if the injury is on a sensitive body part such as the eyes or groin.


For emergency first aid kits — Absorbent dressings are a must-have item in any emergency first-aid kit. Without the proper absorbent wound dressings to pack an injury, the victim risks going into shock or fainting from blood loss, exacerbating the condition. Combination wound dressings and general purpose wound dressings are ideal for a first aid kit as they are relatively compact and can ensure your kit is equipped to quickly address moderate to severe injuries.
