Characteristics and benefits
Stratamed is an advanced, transparent, and semi-occlusive film-forming wound dressing used after surgery, full-field procedures (i.e. ablative laser), or on deeper wounds. Stratamed has been developed with a special consistency to ensure that it remains in stronger contact with the wound bed or damaged surface.
How does Stratamed work?
Stratamed dries to form a thin, flexible, protective layer that is gas permeable and waterproof. It hydrates and protects compromised skin areas and open wounds from chemical and microbial invasion. Epidermal cells are able to move to the surface of the dermis through wound exudate which collects at the wound dressing interface. This environment prevents secondary tissue damage resulting from dehydration. This environment promotes enzymatic autolytic debridement. Wound exudate, which carries a number of growth factors essential to the healing of wounds, is kept protected in the wound-dressing interface. Stratamed emulates the epidermal barrier and helps enhance the healing of wounds. Stratamed prevents water loss while maintaining the oxygen transfer rate. The wound is kept in an optimal environment for healing.
Who can use Stratamed?
Stratamed is designed for all skin types. It is suitable for pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers, children or people with sensitive skin. Stratamed is transparent and odorless, does not contain alcohol, fragrances or parabens. Stratamed always remains on top of the wound bed or newly formed granulation tissue. Stratamed is inert and non-reactive with no measurable pH.
