Drawtex Hydroconductive Wound Dressing with Levafiber is a hydroconductive, non-adherent wound dressing with LevaFiber technology. This is a combination of two types of absorbent cross-action structure that creates the ability to draw exudate away from the wound surface while removing toxic components, such as slough, necrotic tissue, and bacteria. It provides hydroconductive debridement that lifts and loosens adherent slough. Even slough that is not taken up into the dressing migrates toward the dressing so that it can be easily removed when the dressing is changed.

Drawtex Hydroconductive Wound Dressing Highlights

  • Dilute the concentration of bacteria
  • Create a natural vacuum system (negative pressure)
  • Strip away and stop the production of wound barriers
  • Hydroconductive
  • Non-adherent

Drawtex Hydroconductive Wound Dressing Features

Capillary action gives Drawtex its ability to move wound exudate and wound debris into the porous material of the dressing. With the small pores acting as capillaries, intermolecular attractive forces between the exudate and solid surfaces of the wound dressing allow the exudate to be drawn upward against the force of gravity.

Drawtex Wound Dressing Capillary Action
 

Hydroconductive action is controlled by Darcy’s Law that defines the ability of a fluid to flow through porous media. Fluid can move from wetter to drier – even against gravity. This explains how water can be transported from the roots of a tree to the leaves. The LevaFiber Technology of Drawtex allows the dressing to lift, hold and transfer the wound exudate both vertically and horizontally by hydroconductive action.

How to use Drawtex Hydroconductive Wound Dressing?

  • Cut
    - Drawtex may be cut to conform to wound shape. Any side of Drawtex can be used against the wound bed.
  • Apply
    - For low exudating or dry wounds, apply a nonadherent (perforated) dressing before applying Drawtex. For best results, ensure dressing has direct contact with wound bed.
  • Layer
    - For moderate to highly exudating wounds, apply Drawtex directly to wound bed. For heavy exudate, apply additional layers as necessary.
  • Cover
    - Cover with a secondary dressing or bandage of choice.
  • Change
    - Change Drawtex every one to three days, as necessary. Once exudate is under control, dressing may be changed less frequently. If Drawtex is adherent, irrigate with saline for easy removal.
