Respecting the needs of fragile and compromised skin

For many patients, dressings are an integral part in their daily routine. However, the application and removal can have a negative effect on the skin, due to the adhesive. In addition to unnecessary pain, skin damage caused by a dressing can also increase the risk of infection, result in a larger wound and delay healing. This is especially true for fragile and compromised skin.
