Appeel Sterile sachet: helps remove pain from a dressing change

01/06/10 | Products | Pam Cooper

Repeated application and removal of adhesive dressings and tapes can result in stripping of the skin in both the wound and periwound areas. This not only causes pain, but can also increase wound dimensions, delay healing, induce an inflammatory response and increase the risk of infection. Adhesive removers are designed to facilitate easy, pain-free and non-traumatic removal of adhesive dressings. This article details a study into Appeel® Sterile sachet medical adhesive remover (CliniMed) and examines the product’s ability to help remove dressings while preventing pain and trauma.
