Advazorb Sacral is a hydrophilic foam dressing designed by experts to contour to the sacral area, for wounds with low to medium levels of exudate.

With a Silfix soft silicone wound contact layer for convenient gentle adherence, Advazorb Sacral will only adhere to dry skin surrounding the wound, and can be easily lifted for adjustment without losing its adherent properties.

If exudate is visible around the edges of the dressing this is a clear indication that a dressing change is required. Clinical observation is necessary to determine required frequency of change.

Contra-indications
Arterial bleeds and heavily bleeding wounds and vascular fungating tumours.
