Sterile Compresses are home first-aid kit essentials and are recommended by the World Health Organisation and Red Cross. Elastoplast Sterile Compress is ideal for use immediately after an accident. Designed for cleansing and covering of medium to larger everyday wounds like scratches, cuts, grazes, burns and lacerations. The extra large 10cm X 10cm Sterile Compress comes packaged in a sterile pouch of two compresses.
This compress is not only ideal for treatment of an acute wound in an emergency, but also for sterile treatment after surgery. The compress is suitable for use with wound antiseptics or wound healing ointments and creams.
The Sterile Compress can be folded or unfolded depending on the size of the wound – neat folded edges ensure that the compress can be used opened up or unfolded without loose edge threads. A folded compress can offer extra cushioning to smaller wounds.
Elastoplast Sterile Compress is very absorbent and breathable. It’s suitable for sensitive skin and is manufactured in accordance with EN 14079 specification.
