Exit-Pocket WP Catheter Dressing
WP - Waterproof protection for the catheter.
The WP is a catheter dressing device which allows complete catheter isolation from water, minimising bacterial contamination risk & improving quality of life. For a patient a catheter implantation can limit one's lifestyle, let alone when trying to avoid contact with water. One of the major infection causes related to a catheter dressing is the water contact and it is extremely important that catheter’s exit-site, as well as catheter’s lumen remains dry.
The WP is a waterproof pocket closed on four sides, provided with an adhesive hole to be fixed to the skin. Also available with an opening/closing system at the bottom of the pocket. It can be applied autonomously onto cleansed skin, without requiring assistance.
Designed for all catheter types and implant sites.
