Give your patients protection they can see.

Whether you need waterproof bandages for stitches, treating cuts and scrapes, or for any other purpose, DrySee provides superior protection against water – and the unique moisture indicator lets you and your patients know if the dressing has been compromised and requires replacement.

Waterproof Clear Film

Thanks to the clear film and unique Perimeter Protection Indicator, patients can avoid getting water in their bandage and on their wound while showering and bathing, and quickly change the bandage if it becomes compromised.

Non-Adherent Liquid Bandage 

DrySee bandages use a sterile, non-adhering cotton center pad that provides absorption for low exudate wounds and is built with liquid indicating technology.

The center pad will change color upon saturation. When wound exudate saturates the pad, it will turn from a light blue to a darker blue, signaling that it is time to replace the bandage.


An additional layer of protection is offered by the Perimeter Protection Indicator. This perimeter band of liquid indicating material surrounds the outer edges of the bandage and provides a visual moisture alert. It absorbs any liquid that may enter from around the edges of the bandage and changes color prior to that moisture reaching the wound site. Color change is an alert to change the bandage.

DrySee’s liquid indicating technology provides a visual moisture alert so doctors and patients alike, can tell if the bandage has been compromised from the exterior or the center pad has become saturated, and remove and replace it accordingly.

Non-Latex Adhesive

For long-lasting protection and to ensure that patients with latex allergies can use DrySee waterproof bandages for stitches and wounds, this dressing is built with a non-latex adhesive. Combined with the waterproof clear film, this adhesive provides long-lasting wound protection.

Description


The DrySee™ Bandage with Pad is a waterproof barrier dressing with a wetness indicator. The dressing consists of a non-adherent absorbent cotton pad bonded to a clear film with a non-latex skin adhesive. The film is a barrier to prevent contamination from the outside. An outer absorbent ring intercepts and traps moisture which may intrude, possibly from a shower. When wet, the color of the cotton pad changes from light blue to darker blue.




Indications


The DrySee™ Bandage with Pad is designed to cover acute wounds such as cuts, abrasions, partial-thickness burns, IV-sites and incisions. It is also designed to cover low-exuding partial-thickness chronic wounds including pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers or venous ulcers. It is also designed to be worn into a shower as a protective dressing to assist in maintaining wound dryness. This product is not designed, sold or intended for use except as indicated.




Contraindications


None known.




Warnings
