Research shows that maintaining a moist wound environment is optimal to the healing process. To help manage moisture and promote autolytic debridement – the body’s way of getting rid of dead tissue and keeping healthy tissue – Medline Industries, Inc. has introduced Opticell and Opticell Ag+ with silver, wound dressings that help create a moist healing environment and are gentle to the patient.
Opticell can be used on wounds of all drainage levels and utilizes technology that allows fluids to wick vertically into the wound dressing, not across the wound, to help prevent maceration and maintain an optimal wound-healing environment. When moistened, Opticell’s absorbent fibers transform into a conformable gel. This makes it possible to manage drainage and remove dead, damaged tissue.
