Ideal combination of a non-adherent absorbent pad with a dressing which absorbs wound odours and bacteria. For the care of infected, purulent wounds with unpleasant odours such as lower leg ulcers, decubitus or anal fistulae. A skin-friendly, breathable nonwoven cover helps the exudate transfer into the absorbent core. Bacteria and odours are retained by Vliwaktiv dressings. The clothing protection layer prevents penetration of wound exudate.
