Healthcare providers, organizations invited to experience patented color-changing bandage
DrySee®, a medical technology company dedicated to improving wound care, announces the opportunity for healthcare professionals to meet for a demonstration of its groundbreaking wound care technology at Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) Fall in Las Vegas on November 2 to November 5, 2023. DrySee® is the first patented waterproof bandage with liquid intrusion alert.
According to the American College of Surgeons, over 15 million Americans have some type of surgery each year. Infections are the most common cause of follow up treatments and hospitalizations following surgical procedures costing the health care industry billions of dollars yearly. Surgical site infections have an estimated annual cost of $3.3 billion and are associated with nearly 1 million additional inpatient-days annually. And this is just one type of wound that can benefit from a better bandage solution. DrySee® can also be used on everything from chronic wounds to everyday cuts and scrapes.
DrySee®’s waterproof bandages provide a secure, waterproof covering for low exudate wounds. If water or other liquids make their way into the bandage, the gauze barrier around the perimeter of the bandage will turn from a light blue to a dark, blue color. The color change alerts the user to change the bandage, knowing that the perimeter seal is broken. If liquid passes through the second adhesive ring and reaches the wound site, or if the wound seeps fluid, the internal gauze pad will turn a dark blue color, alerting that a bandage change is necessary. DrySee®’s color changing, liquid intrusion alert takes the guesswork out of replacing bandages because it is easy to see if the bandage is wet or dry.
DrySee® bandages can help patients stay on top of wound care by alerting them when a bandage needs to be changed instead of the patient changing a bandage whenever it “seems” like it needs to be changed. DrySee bandages can last for up to 3 days, so patients may even be able to reduce the number of bandage changes they need to complete during recovery.
DrySee liquid indicating bandages are waterproof, sterile, disposable, breathable, non-latex, and one bandage can be used for up to three days. For more information and ordering, visit www.drysee.com.
DrySee’s mission is to provide bandage solutions that allow patients to live their lives confidently after surgery. The DrySee team saw a need in the medical industry for a more secure and effective dressing to ensure better post-op healing and created a revolutionary waterproof dressing that changes color to indicate if the bandage has been compromised. The cutting-edge, patented
DrySee technology helps to lower both staff and material costs while improving patient compliance and experience.
