CUTINOVA Hydro is a HYDRO-SELECTIVE, self adhesive sterile wound dressing consisting of two layers – a polyurethane gel matrix and a polyurethane top-film which is waterproof and acts as a bacterial barrier.
One of the clear advantages of CUTINOVA Hydro is that it is semi-transparent. Semi transparency allows observation of the underlying wound, without the need for unnecessary dressing changes or disturbance of the wound.
This means a wound can be generally observed without removing the dressing. As a consequence of this, the need for unnecessary dressing changes is reduced and so the wound is disturbed less often. These clear benefits of CUTINOVA Hydro also save valuable nursing time.
Waterproof and bacterial barrier ‘Super absorbent particles’ within the polyurethane gel matrix lock in excess wound fluid, even under compression3..CUTINOVA Hydro is the clean choice because it absorbs fluid without breaking down into the wound.
The superabsorbent polymer in CUTINOVA Hydro not only absorbs excess wound fluid but also holds it in, thereby preventing leakage and reducing the risk of wound maceration, even under compression.
The polyurethane gel matrix of CUTINOVA Hydro stays intact, leaving no gel or dressing residue in the wound when CUTINOVA Hydro is removed.
Locked in wound fluid reduces the risk of maceration , and incidence of leakage
CUTINOVA Hydro does not break down into a messy gel, a common source of odour from wounds treated with hydrocolloids.
