The sacrum dressings can be worn up to 5 days and up to 7 days for other wound locations (depending on the wound and exudate level). Unique ergonomically shape designed to fit the contours of the body so it conforms securely, and allows the patient to shower. Excellent absorbency and fluid locking ensures minimal leakage and odor.
