Originally designed for the needs of sensitive and painful burn wounds, PolyMem dressings are thin polyurethane foam membrane dressings containing a non-toxic cleanser (F68 Surfactant) and a moisturiser (glycerol), with a semi-permeable film backing. The addition of a starch co-polymer within the foam helps bind moisture and concentrate growth factors produced by the body. PolyMem dressings are non-adherent1 and help to cleanse the wound whilst in place to minimise procedural pain and trauma when dressings are changed 2,3,4. The unique properties of a PolyMem dressing also help to reduce inflammation, promoting comfort and pain reduction while the dressing is worn 5-10. Clinical experience demonstrates that PolyMem dressings actively encourage the healing process and are suitable for fragile skin 1,11,12.
When to use PolyMem (Non-Adhesive):
PolyMem is indicated for superficial and partial thickness burns, traumatic wounds, skin tears, radiotherapy skin reactions, donor and graft sites.
