Iodine Dressings

Iodine Dressings are composed of cadexomer iodine microbeads that contain 0.9% iodine. They have a three-dimensional starch lattice whose pores increase in size on coming in contact with exudate, providing a gradual release of iodine. This slow release of iodine allows the wound to remain in contact with it continuously. The microbeads can also remove and absorb debris from the wound bed. Iodine wound dressings usually come in the form of a gel, pad and powder, each of them made up of the same formulation. Shop Wound Care offers a variety of iodine dressings like Iodoflex Cadexomer Iodine Pad Dressing and Iodosorb Cadexomer Iodine Gel.
