Drain and IV Sponges

Drain and IV sponges are highly absorbent dressings which wick the fluid away from areas that require removal of unwanted fluid. They are just a square piece of gauze with a hole in the middle and a slit from an edge to the hole. The drain tube or IV catheter is fitted into the hole by passing it through the slit. This pre-slit design helps the drain sponge to fit snugly around the tube, absorbing maximum fluid and protecting the skin. At Shop Wound Care, we offer a wide range of drain and IV sponges from various top-selling brands like Kendall, Avant Gauze, Sorbacell, etc.
