VAC GranuFoam Silver Dressing. Designed specifically for the VAC Therapy System, VAC GranuFoam Silver Dressing combines negative pressure wound therapy with the protective attributes of silver. The GranuFoam Silver Dressing pores come in direct contact with the wound, eliminating the need for additional silver dressing layers that may inhibit negative pressure and granulation.


Microbonded metallic silver is uniformly distributed throughout the dressing, providing continuous delivery of silver even after sizing. The dressing offers a protective barrier to reduce aerobic, Gram-negative, and Gram-positive bacteria; yeast; and fungi, and it may help reduce infections in wounds.

Baza Cleanse and Protect Perineal Cloth. The latest addition to the Baza Cleanse and Protect line of 3-in-1 lotions, this product is intended to cleanse, moisturize, and protect the skin from the effects of incontinence. It incorporates the Baza Cleanse and Protect odor-control lotion, and it absorbs 30% more and delivers twice as much protectant as the market-leading product, according to the manufacturer.


The cloth cleanses with pH-balanced and mild no-rinse surfactants, conditions with rich emollients and humectants, and releases dimethicone to protect the skin of patients at risk for incontinent-related injury. The simple, single-step product is designed to ensure protocol compliance by reducing nursing time and assuring cost control.

HiZel dressing. This hydrogel-based wound dressing helps accelerate natural healing and reduce scarring and pain. Natural polysaccharides are embedded in its 3-dimensional network structure of polyvinyl alcohol and water. The transparent flexible patch cools on contact and adheres only to healthy skin, not the wound, allowing painless dressing changes.


HiZel can transport water-soluble medications to the wound in a sustained manner. The dressing is indicated for nonhealing ulcers, pressure ulcers, superficial and partial-thickness burns, sunburns, and radiation burns.
