Collagen & Silicone
Collagen and Silicon dressings are both quite effective wound care dressing options. Collagen dressing is a kind of wound dressing which assists in the formation of Epitheliazation and granulation tissue by maintaining a suitable environment for wound care healing. Collagen dressing is manufactured from porcine, bovine, avian and equine sources, which is used in order to make the dressing antigenic. Collagen wound dressing provides structural proteins that are naturally present in most parts of the human body and it makes the tissues connective. Application of collagen dressing on wound provides protection from reduction of the body's own collagen. Due to overuse of enzymes, the human body needs building material to recover like proteins.
There are different types of collagen dressing such as type I native collagen, which contain cellulose derivatives and alginate. It provides high absorbency, comfort, flexibility and it also keeps the tissues moist. Some collagen dressings have denatured collagen as well. Collagen dressings have surface area and several pores too; and they are available in different sizes as well. Daily change of Collagen dressing is not required but it does require a secondary dressing.
Through research, we know that some collagen wound dressings produce a great deal of fibroblast which contains a hydrophilic property. This property is important in encouraging fibroblast suffusion. Curing with an uptake and bio availability of Fibronectin helps to preserve macrophages, leukocytes and epithelial cells. These characteristics help to maintain the thermostatic and chemical environment of the wound.
SILICON WOUND DRESSINGS
Silicon dressing are manufactured with a soft silicone coating for the purpose of wound contact and adhesive. The internal features of soft silicone involve trauma free application and removal of the dressing; thus, the patients will not suffer any pain. There are different types of silicone wound dressing for a variety of situations. Unlike alginate dressing, the silicon dressings are not used for the purpose of absorbing, it is mostly used for adhesive and wound contact layer.
Silicon wound dressing is useful for treatments of Keloids and hypertrophic scars. They effectively reduce the scars caused by surgery. It is helpful in reducing tension on the skin surface. Mostly, it is used to cover surgical areas because two edges need to be held together so that the tissue can connect and can be healed. Patients whose wounds are covered with Silicon wound dressing suffer minimum trauma than any other dressing.
Silicon wound dressing are chemically inert, these dressings do not interact with wound, and their effect upon the tissue enhances the healing process. Because of trauma free application and removal at the wound site and environs, it does not interfere with wound healing process.
Dressings Features And Characteristics:
Effective Wound Care Dressing
Collagen and silicone wound dressing provides highly effective and advanced wound care; unlike other dressing, they encourage the healing process. Wounds, injuries and surgical surfaces are safely healed with the help of these dressings. This dressing deactivates contamination and bacterial effects and they have plus targets to induce a therapeutic effect on the wound. Collagen and silicone dressings contain antimicrobial ionic silver for management of bio burden which helps to increase the efficiency of the healing process.
Trauma Free Application
Being extremely comfortable dressing for applying and removing, both collagen and silicone dressing are trauma free; which suggests that the patients shall not feel any pain or discomfort while applying or changing it.
Gelling And Absorbing Materials.
Collagen and silicone dressing have gelled material which enhances the patient’s comfort by providing a cool and soothing environment to the wound. These dressings release the tension of tissue and make them comfortable to be healed. These dressings have CMC and alginate fibers, which control moistness and drainage from wounds like exudates. Silicone and collagen dressings are highly absorbent, due to availability of gel; they can absorb or hold up to 40 times more than their weight.
