Suprasorb® H Hydrocolloid Dressing

Thin and flexible for an ideal wound healing environment

Add to Watchlist

Suprasorb H creates an ideal moist wound environment for lightly to moderately exuding wounds, reliably promoting wound healing.

An absorbent hydrocolloid layer which is applied to a polyurethane film swells on contact with the wound to form a gel which binds to the exudate and tissue debris. This gel formation enables the dressing to mould itself to the wound structure. All Suprasorb H versions are especially thin and flexible. It is simple and safe to use because of its excellent adhesive properties. Because the dressing repels both bacteria and fluids, patients can wash and shower easily. Suprasorb H thin is available in a 5 x 5 cm size specifically for the treatment of diabetic foot.

  1. The hydrocolloid swells when the exudate is absorbed, forming a gel which binds to the exudate and tissue debris.
  2. repels bacteria and fluids
  3. Excessive water vapour evaporates.

Dressing Change Interval

Is determined by the treating physician based on wound condition, degree of exudate and possible primary dressing, after 5-7 days at the latest. The dressing must be changed if there is severe blistering extending beyond the wound surface.
