The Kendall TENDERSORB WET-PRUF ABD Pad is a highly absorbent pad consisting of three layers. The first layer is a soft, outer nonwoven layer. The second is a fluff filler layer for absorbency and a third layer of WET-PRUF barrier to prevent fluid strike-through. All four edges are sealed to prevent lint residue and leaking.
Additional information as provided by the manufacturer:
| Three Layer Construction||Soft top layer wicks fluid away from wound; Fluff filler absorbs and disperses fluid throughout the entire pad|
| Infection Protection|| Acts as a reservoir to capture exudates, helping to prevent the development of moist pathways that can lead to contamination|
| Highly Absorbent|| Absorbs at least twice as much fluid without strike-through as competitive abdominal pads reducing dressing changes; Utilizes 65% of the pad prior to fluid strike-through versus 10% utilization of competitive pads |
| All four edges sealed|| Prevent lint residue and leaking; help prevent particulate matter from escaping, decreasing the possibility of wound contamination |
| WET-PRUF backing || Retards fluid strike-through; Moisture proof backing protects both the patient and healthcare worker from fluid strike-through|
