Description

A larger burn dressing. Excellent for covering sizeable areas, such as the thigh, shoulder or back. The Water-Jel® Tactical Burn Dressing 8" X 18" has a more durable and more compact packaging than the consumer version, and the label can be read with night vision goggles.

Water-Jel® is a gel-soaked, sterile dressing that stops burn progression, cools the skin, eases pain, and protects against airborne contamination.

This Water-Jel® product contains a new and improved formula in response to feedback from various emergency departments. The new gel used is clear (instead of opaque) which allows emergency department staff to see what is happening to the burn site without removing the gel. This product is no longer scented with tea tree oil, this is for ease in the emergency room as well as being less detectable in military applications. The change in formula has not affected the consistency of the gel, it won’t stick to the surface of a burn injury, which means it does not have to be aggressively removed.

Hyaluronic Acid has also been added to the revised recipe, which modulates the inflammatory response and facilitates wound closure, and MICRO Kill Antibacterial has been included to protect the wound from infection.

Unit Dimensions: 8in. x 18in. (20 cm x 45 cm)

Weight: 0.6 lb.
Sterile

Stops burn progression, cools the skin, eases pain and protects against airborne contamination. Gel-soaked, sterile dressing.

When a burn occurs, seconds count! Burn injuries should be cooled immediately, otherwise the heat will continue to destroy the surrounding and underlying tissue, and may progress a partial thickness (second degree) burn into a full thickness (third degree) burn injury. This, in turn, will present serious consequences for the patient and considerable extra cost for the receiving hospital/burn unit.

CRITICAL STEPS TO TREAT A BURN:
1. Immediately stop the burning process—seconds count!
2. Cool the burn—don’t overcool the victim.
3. Provide pain relief.
4. Cover and protect the burn area against contamination.

COOLING BURNS THE RIGHT WAY
Water-Jel Burn Dressings are a gelatinized water mix designed to perform the four critical steps for burn management in one application. Because of their gelatinous nature, they seal the burn from further contamination, they cool the burn site and relieve pain by heat transfer into themselves, and the fluids on the burn site cannot soak into the dressing nor can they evaporate through them. And finally, as the burn site cools down, the dressing warms up, leaving the site covered by a warm dressing, helping to prevent hypothermia.

Water-Jel Burn Dressings will absorb temperatures in excess of 2000 degrees F—extremely important when you consider that human bone carbonizes at 1400 degrees F and other dressings could melt into the site. With Water-Jel, there is plenty of extra gel to use on any hyperemic or stasis sites surrounding the main burn, and the gel can be left on for more than four hours.
