DuoDERM Signal Dressings - 4 inch x 4 inch, Square
Duoderm Signal dressing, 4" x 4", tapered edge, box of 5
Duoderm Signal dressings are very helpful in facilitating wound healing because of their ConvaTec hydrocolloid formulation. This unique dressing helps injuries heal faster by providing the right environment for healing.
Why the duoderm signal is so effective
The Duoderm Signal is so effective because these dressings help the wound stay moist. Medical professionals agree that moisture is needed for faster and better healing. Before this type of bandage was available, dry gauze was used to cover wounds. Scabs formed, and healing time took much longer. With dry gauze, an oozing wound often sticks to the gauze, so when it is removed, part of the healing tissue is also removed. This problem does not occur with Duoderm Signal products because of the moisture provided by the hydrocolloid.
There is an adhesive on this product, and the Duoderm Signal dressing also has a green border on the top of the bandage that indicates when it needs to be changed. Changing dressings is required about every seven days, or when the oozing reaches the green line. This is a very helpful feature in helping wounds heal because dressings do not need to be changed very often. When the wound is not disturbed as often, new tissue can form and the wound can heal faster. Wounds are protected from dirt, water, viruses, and bacteria, yet the dressing is permeable by moisture vapor. Additionally, the smooth backing on the duoderm signal dressing helps prevent it from coming off before it is necessary to change it.
Sizes and uses for this product
Duoderm Signal Dressings are specifically designed to fit difficult to reach areas with ease. Their tapered edge contours to help the bandage fit properly. Various shapes that are made include ovals in 4.5 inch by 7.5 inch sizes, sacral size in 8 inches by 9 inches, and heel size in 7.5 inches by 7.8 inches. Different triangular shapes are also available in 6 inches by 7 inches or 8 inches by 9 inches. A square shape is also available in 4 inches by 4 inches, 5.5 inches by 5.5 inches, or 8 inches by 8 inches. Dressings can also be cut to size if necessary.
Duoderm Signal dressings are ideal in areas of the body where friction may dislodge it prematurely, including heels, buttocks, elbows, and other areas that may develop wounds. They are also often used as a dressing for bed sores in those confined to a wheel chair or to bed for much of the time. They prevent rubbing and friction, which enhances healing of the wound.
Other advantages of this dressing
Duoderm Signal is transparent, which makes it possible to see how the wound is healing. If they are used on the heel or elbow on a person who is active and mobile, they will be able to maintain their lifestyle since the dressings are waterproof. Also, these dressings do not have any latex in them, so they will not cause allergic reactions in those who are allergic to it. Duoderm Signal dressings help wounds heal quickly, so they allow those with a wound to resume their normal activities in a very short time.
