Hydrocoll is a self-adherent absorbent hydrocolloid dressing with a semipermeable backing which is impermeable to bacteria and water. The hydrocolloid transforms into a gel when in contact with wound exudate and forms a moist environment which has a stimulating effect on granulation and epithelialisation.
For moist wound treatment of clinically non-infected, low to moderately exuding wounds, especially wounds with poor healing tendency. In the presence of devitalised tissue, Hydrocoll facilitates autolytic debridement by creating a moist wound–dressing interface. Hydrocoll Thin is generally used on wounds that are dry or which have low levels of exudate.
