Product description

Unique 3D foam structure for superior absorption

When in contact with exudate, the unique 3D foam structure of Biatain® conforms to the wound bed for superior absorption – even under compression (2,6).

Soft and flexible dressing

Biatain® Ibu is a soft and flexible dressing that delivers high patient comfort. The bevelled edges reduce the risk of pressure marks (3).

Combines moist wound healing with local release of Ibuprofen

In the presence of exudate, there is a sustained release of a low dose of Ibuprofen into the wound bed throughout the wear time of the dressing (up to 7 days) (1,7).

Wound healing does not have to be painful

Comparative studies have shown a reduction in wound pain in patients wearing Biatain® Ibu compared with dressings without Ibuprofen (4,5).

Mode of action

Ibuprofen is released when the foam comes into contact with wound exudate (1,7).

Composition

Biatain® Ibu is an absorbent polyurethane foam that contains 0.5 mg/cm2 of Ibuprofen homogeneously dispersed throughout the foam matrix (1).

Usage

Biatain® Ibu Non-Adhesive is indicated for a wide range of low to highly exuding wounds. This includes acute wounds such as second degree burns, donor sites, postoperative wounds and skin abrasions: and chronic wounds such as leg ulcers, pressure ulcers and non-infected diabetic foot ulcers. Biatain® Ibu is suitable for use in combination with compression therapy.
