What are Opsite Transparent Film dressings?
Transparent films are adhesive, semi-permeable, polyurethane membrane dressings that vary in thickness and size. They're waterproof and impermeable to bacteria and contaminants, yet they permit water to cross the barrier. These dressings maintain a moist healing environment, promoting formation of granulation tissue and autolysis of necrotic tissue. Transparent films may be used as a primary or secondary dressing to prevent and manage stage 1 pressure ulcers, partial-thickness wounds with little or no exudate, and wounds with necrotic tissue or slough.
How to apply Opsite
Remove the backing from the dressing to expose the adhesive surface. Place the dressing gently over the wound, allowing the film to cover at least 1"" (2.5 cm) of undamaged skin around the wound.
How to remove Opsite
Lift a corner of the dressing and begin stretching it horizontally along the skin surface, breaking the adhesive bond. Continue stretching from the edges toward the center. When two sides if the dressing are partially removed, grasp both sides and stretch horizontally, parallel to the skin, until the entire dressing can be removed.
