PolyMem Wound Care Dressing - 4 x 24" roll

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.

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 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.

  • Apply the dressing film side out. DO NOT use any materials to pack the wound while using PolyMem dressings.

  • 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.

1 Question | 1 Answer
Can I shower with this dressing on? How long should it last? 24 hours? More?

0 people had the same question
I am not a medical practitioner, so please take all this with many grains of salt. I do use this product, and I don't think showering is a good idea. The value of the dressing is that it removes moisture from the wound area. Saturating the dressing seems counter productive. I usually leave the dressing on for 24 hours, unless it comes loose on its own. I tape the edges pretty thoroughly. I have had great success with this in treating pressure sores (and was originally instructed in their use by a qualified wound care specialist). I hope this helps.
