Smith & Nephew Opsite Transparent Adhesive Film Dressing

Brand/Manufacturer: SMITH & NEPHEW
  • FSA Approved

Smith & Nephew Opsite Transparent Adhesive Dressing is a moisture vapor permeable, conformable and extensible dressing. Its moisture vapor permeability allows the excess exudate to evaporate, helping prevent skin maceration. Opsite is widely used to provide a moist wound environment for superficial wounds and is also ideal for use as a secondary dressing.

  • Smith & Nephew Opsite Transparent Adhesive Dressing has simple, effective application technique
  • Standard in moist wound care by retaining the natural wound exudate
  • Superior film with acrylic adhesive:
    Opsite film is highly extensible and conformable, which combined with its moisture vapor permeability, means the dressing can be left in place for up to 7 days. This minimizes interference at the wound site and reduces the amount of nursing time required.
  • Waterproof:
    Opsite is resistant to water and body fluids, allowing the patient to bathe without changing dressings. It also aids in the prevention of bacterial contamination.
  • Adaptable to Awkward Areas:
    Opsite has been designed to be adaptable for use on all areas of the body. It can be easily cut into strips or shapes for application to awkward areas such as heels, elbows and knees.
  • Indications For Use:
    - Superficial wounds, such as shallow pressure sores, minor burns, cuts and abrasions
    - Use as a secondary dressing, for example over Intrasite Gel Amorphous Hydrogel Dressing or Allevyn Cavity Wound Dressing
    - To provide catheter fixation
