Sorbsan Packing

Sorbsan’s properties make it ideal for managing cavity wounds; the fibres absorb exudate and form a gel which fully contours the wound. The gel can be irrigated away from the wound with normal saline 0.9% for pain free removal 1,2.  Sorbsan Packing dressings come with a plastic probe to help assess the wound before dressing.

When to use Sorbsan Packing:
