This superabsorbent dressing is a sterile, superabsorbent wound dressing for use on wounds with high to excessive amounts of exudate. The dressing consists of a white, superabsorbent core, a clear, perforated, polyethylene film wound contact layer and a white, hydrophobic nonwoven backing, which together help minimize moisture leakage. The dressing absorbs exudate while helping maintain a moist wound environment and is also effective under pressure. Fluids are absorbed and retained within the dressing. In addition, the high absorbency of the product helps increase dressing change intervals.
