Summary

Managing wounds with moderate to high amounts of exudate can be challenging, even under the best of circumstances. The COVID-19 pandemic has made caring for patients with such wounds all the more difficult, as these patients tend to have comorbidities that make them susceptible to developing serious complications from the novel coronavirus. For this reason, both clinicians and patients are interested in reducing the number of times that patients need to visit their wound care provider.

This is where Zetuvit Plus Non-Border Superabsorbent Dressing from HARTMANN comes into play. Zetuvit Plus is a four-layer dressing designed to effectively absorb large amounts of exudate. Unlike standard dressings, it is highly absorbent and can lessen periwound maceration. Highly rated by patients and clinicians alike, Zetuvit Plus is an ideal dressing to consider using during this social distancing era.
