- Breathable film allows skin to function normally with good exchange of moisture vapor and oxygen
- Provides moist wound environment to enhance healing and lessen pain
- Unique, non-adherent pad won’t stick to the wound, allowing normal wound healing processes to occur with less pain and trauma

This island dressing is a sterile, waterproof, viral and bacterial barrier which consists of a non-adherent absorbent pad bonded to a larger thin film transparent dressing (In vitro testing shows that the transparent film provides a viral barrier from virus 27 nm in diameter or larger while the dressing remains intact without leakage)
