||Low-adherence gauze dressing impregnated with paraffin wax.
Paraffin Gauze Dressings are ideal for minor burns and wounds with superficial skin loss. It soothes and protects the wound to allow drainage onto a secondary absorbent dressing. Also commonly indicated for donor and recipient skin grafts, skin loss wounds and leg ulcers, paraffin gauze is a proven, effective treatment.
STAYGUARD™ IS THE BRAND OF CHOICE
StayGuard™ paraffin gauze dressings provide a low-adherent first layer dressing that provides relief for the patient and facilitates the healing process. For effective would healing, it is common to apply multiple layers of paraffin gauze and an antibacterial ointment, which is possible as these types of dressings are not medicated for the purpose of applying a desired medication. Our open-weave gauze minimizes fraying and maintains shape. StayGuard™ paraffin dressings are ISO, CE and USFDA approved.
StayGuard™ paraffin gauze dressings are used in hospitals, clinics, for first aid, and operating rooms worldwide and available in the hospital sector, especially in emergency rooms and by dermatologists. As paraffin gauze is not absorbent, it is important that a secondary dressing is applied to avoid the drying out of the dressing which will stick to the wound causing damage to healing tissue and pain for the patient. It is also important that healing tissue does not grow into the mesh of the gauze, causing damage upon removal which will slow the healing process.
How should the StayGuard™ Paraffin Gauze Dressings most effectively be applied?
1) Wash hands thoroughly and gently clean the wound.
2) Open the wrapper and peel off the protective paper to reveal the gauze dressing.
3) Apply an antibacterial ointment to reduce the risk of the gauze from sticking and drying out.
4) Place the dressing onto the wound and apply an appropriate second dressing (or an absorbent pad with tape or bandage).
How should the gauze dressing be removed?
StayGuard™ Paraffin Gauze Dressings should be removed carefully to prevent destruction of new tissue. It is strongly recommended to use an antibacterial ointment and a secondary dressing to provide an ideal healing environment.
How often should I change the gauze dressing?
Our gauze dressings should be changed daily or more often depending upon the nature of the wound. If left for prolonged periods of time, the dressing can stick to the wound and cause tissue damage upon removal.
Can the StayGuard™ Paraffin Gauze Dressing be used on any wound?
Yes, but it is most ideally used on minor burns and wounds with superficial skin loss. Due to the semi-occlusive nature of the paraffin gauze dressing, the dressing may prevent free movement of exudate away from the surface of the wound if placed on a heavily exuding wound.
Where should I store the StayGuard™ Paraffin Gauze Dressing?
It is highly recommended to store StayGuard™ Paraffin Gauze Dressings in a cool, dry place. Doing so will avoid the product from drying up and lessening its healing properties.
