PolyMem Dressings protect the wound as they facilitate the body's natural healing process.Ferris PolyMem®, known worldwide as "The Pink Dressing," provides a warm, moist, healing environment that promotes formation of granulation tissue and reepithelialization... and much more. PolyMem Dressings protect the wound as they facilitate the body's natural healing process.

The model of common-sense dressing design

PolyMem Dressings consist of a polyurethane membrane matrix on a semi-permeable thin-film backing. Unlike any other dressing, the hydrophilic membrane contains a cleanser, a moisturizer and a super-absorbent starch co-polymer. This unique design and patented formulation eliminates the need for manual debridement and cleaning during dressing changes, reducing patient discomfort and the time and cost of dressing changes. PolyMem facilitates the healing process by promoting the concentration of the body's naturally produced growth factors, nutrients and regenerated cells in the wound bed.

HERE’S HOW POLYMEM WORKS!
How Polymem works
The Semi-Permeable Film Backing provides a bacterial barrier while allowing gas (O2 and CO2) exchange and maintaining an ideal moisture vapor transmission rate (MVTR). The transparent film backing allows visual inspection of the membrane to determine the need for a dressing change.

The Polyurethane Membrane Matrix wicks away up to ten times it’s weight in exudate. It will not fragment and leaves no residue in the wound bed. The membrane contains a cleanser, moisturizer and super-absorbent starch co-polymer.

The F-68 Surfactant contained in the dressing, is a mild wound cleansing agent activated by moisture and gradually released into the wound bed. Interfacial tension between healthy tissue and debris is reduced, loosening eschar and necrotic tissue, supporting autolytic debridement and keeping the wound bed clean throughout the entire wound healing process.

The Glycerin, a moisturizer contained in the dressing, keeps the dressing from adhering to the wound bed, providing comfort at the wound site. Glycerin also reduces odor, conserves living fat cells, reduces hypergranulation, soothes traumatized tissues and supports autolytic debridement.

The Super-Absorbent Starch Co-Polymer contained in the dressing, draws, absorbs and holds excess fluids in the hydrophilic membrane while allowing the body’s natural growth factors and nutrients to concentrate at the wound site.



PolyMem® Cloth-backed Adhesive Dressings deliver the advantages of PolyMem technology and the benefits of a breathable, adhesive-coated cloth backing that is exceptionally comfortable for the user. PolyMem cloth-backed adhesive dressings are ideal for treating ecchymosis and resolving skin tears caused by friction and shear.

PolyMem's Directions for use:
  • FlRST POLYMEM® DRESSING APPLICATI0N: Prepare the wound according to wound management protocol or as directed by a physician. DO NOT CLEAN THE WOUND or flush with saline or water FOR ALL OTHER DRESSING CHANGES.
  • Select a dressing so that the pink membrane is 1/4" - 1/2" larger than the wound.
  • Apply the dressing film side out. DO NOT use any materials to pack the wound while using PolyMem dressings.
  • DRAMATIC increase in wound fluid may be observed during the first few days.
  • Keep the PolyMem dressing DRY when bathing.
  • CHANGE dressing when pad is 75% saturated, or when wound fluid is present at an edge of the dressing.
  • DO NOT CLEAN THE WOUND or flush with saline or water between dressing changes.
  • No other topical treatments should be used in conjunction with PolyMem.

PolyMem Wound Care Dressing

Pros:
Easy To Use. Effective. Safe. Promotes Healing.
Best Uses:
Long Term Use. Quick Fix.

Used daily to protect the bridge of my husband's nose from skin-breakdown caused by bi-pap mask. It is the best product we have found for this purpose. I think it is rather high-priced, but it is very effective and certainly easy to cut into the shape needed. Other products I have used were either too thick or too thin. But, just like Goldilocks said about her porridge, this

I have a second degree burn on my leg from ankle to above knee - that's a large area to tolerate the pain but the polyMem helps speed the healing and helps with the pain. I tried a few times without it (just to save money) but it was not worth it! It really works!

Best bandage I've found for my pyoderma Verified Purchaser

Pros:
Safe. Promotes Healing. Easy To Use. Effective.
Best Uses:
Long Term Use.
Describe Yourself:
Novice First Aid Skills.

I've had pyoderma on my right leg for the past three months and everything my doctor had recommended had not worked. In fact the infection had worsen. My ulcer continued to grow larger and deeper, the skin was not pink in colour, my leg and foot were swollen and the pain was unbearable. I discovered polymem, and the bandages have been fantastic. I still have pain but I can manage it with Tylenol with codeine opposed to vicodin. I am finally seeing healthy pink skin within the wound bed and the bandage has been great at getting out the infection. I did not realize just how much exudate was with in the wound bed. Though the polymem can last several days without needed to be changed, I still have to change my bandages twice a day because of the improper way my doctor had been treating my wound; allowing for the infection to grow. It may be a bit more expensive but the polymem is most definitely worth it.

Answer:
You'll want the dressing to extend around the wound by at least a quarter inch. You can cut the dressing to make the dressing last if it is much larger than your wound. Apply the dressing film side out (the side with writing.) There is no need to flush/debride the wound between dressing changes, as this bandage does the debridement for you - unless your doctor directed you to flush with saline. Just do so gently. Keep the wound and dressing dry while bathing.
