Primapore Dressing

Brand Smith Nephew


Primapore* is a soft conformable dressing which can be used to cover all wounds, particularly those in curved areas of the body, such as surgical wounds or general cuts and lacerations.
Consists of a Melolin type pad and a water resistant low allergy Hypafix backing.
  • Soft breathable cover
  • Highly absorbent pad
  • Low Allergy Adhesive
  • Conformable pad and cover : Ensures patient comfort and conformability to all wound sites (even on difficult areas like shoulders and axillae)
The polyester wound contact layer on the Melolin pad enables the passage of blood or exudate into the highly absorbent pad and minimal pain on dressing removal. The thick pad minimises fluid strike-through and helps to protect the wound from trauma.
Safe and Secure Fixation
The low allergy acrylic adhesive is evenly spread onto the non-woven backing surface providing a safe and secure dressing fixation over the wound site.
Ease of use
The protector paper, which is slit across the width of the dressing, enables quick application without the risk of touching the absorbent pad or adhesive area with fingers or forceps. The easily opened packaging facilitates aseptic dressing technique.
Primapore Sterile Adhesive Wound Dressings are ideally suited for post-operative use. They are also useful in Accident & Emergency for cuts, lacerations and sutured wounds.
Contraindications / Precautions
Change dressing daily or more often according to the condition of the wound.
As with all adhesive products apply and remove carefully from sensitive or fragile skin.
Seek medical advice immediately for all serious wounds and burns, or if redness or discomfort occurs.
