Drainage & Irrigation

Drainage and irrigation is an important aspect of wound care since cleaning the wound of debris and draining the exudate off the wound is essential. These products include drainage collectors, catheter access ports, high pressure jets, Penrose drains, etc. Catheter access ports are a seal between the catheter, drain tube, and the collector. Penrose drains fit snugly around the dressing and help the dressing absorb the exudate. At Shop Wound Care, we offer a number of drainage and irrigation product options from top selling brands such as Hollister, Medline, etc.
