Are you unsure whether transparent film dressings are appropriate for your hospital, office, or home first aid kit? No worries. To help you make a more informed decision, we've answered some common questions about transparent and waterproof film dressings below:
What types of injuries are film dressings best for?
Transparent film dressings are breathable plastic-like wound dressings that adhere to the intact skin surrounding a wound bed. Transparent film dressings are best for wounds with little to no exudate (wound fluid) and minimal bleeding, such as minor burns, cuts, and abrasions. These waterproof wound dressings seal in moisture and are particularly useful for preventing water loss in injuries, as well as shielding post-surgical incisions, stitches, and I.V sites.
How long should you leave a transparent film dressing on your skin?
Film dressings can stay on the skin for up to a week, making them ideal for children and patients who dislike changing bandages frequently. The film's transparency allows for easy observation and monitoring of the injury as it heals. A transparent film dressing should be changed if it leaks, or if wound fluid has begun to accumulate under the dressing.
Is it possible to shower while wearing a transparent film dressing?
Yes. With a transparent film dressing, you can shower, bathe, and swim. Water will not affect adhesion as film dressings are waterproof.
