Medical gauze is a light material intended for post-surgical wound applications or deep wound healing. Gauze is a fabric that has many different uses, medical gauze is specifically used in wound care. Gauze pads, bandage rolls, and other medical dressings all take advantage of the highly absorbent quality of gauze. It is a versatile product and can be used by itself or it can be saturated with petroleum like in Xeroform.   

When it comes to medical gauze you will have a lot of choices so it is best to ask your doctor for a recommendation. If you are using medical gauze to treat an open wound  then you should make sure you are using sterile gauze. It is important that wounds are kept clean and the best way to do that is to use sterile medical supplies. Switching from regular nitrile gloves and using sterile gloves instead can keep a sterile zone for your wound. The two general categories of gauze are made from woven and non-woven materials.

We have two types of medical gauze, which are :

Sterile medical Gauze (8 folds – 12 folds – 16 folds) in all required sizes.                          Non-sterile medical Gauze (8 folds – 12 folds – 16 folds) in all required sizes.

Sterile vs Non-Sterile 

Define sterile: in regards to wound care, sterile means that the product is individually packaged and is free from dirt, bacteria, or other living microorganisms. It is a totally clean product that can be used in the treatment of open wounds. Nonsterile wound dressings or medical gauze should not be used on open wounds. They can be used for cushioning bruises or other types of closed wounds. Sterile gauze is going to be packaged to prevent the contents from being exposed to outside surfaces or dirt. If you would like your sterile gauze to stay as sterile as possible before you apply it to the wound then you will want to create a sterile zone. Handle the gauze with clean hands while wearing sterile gloves. If you need to put the gauze down before applying it to the wound, only put it down on top of a new sterile drape. Once the sterile dressing comes into contact with a nonsterile surface then it is no longer sterile. It takes patience and attention to detail to change wound dressings and this is why it should be left to a medical professional unless you have been instructed on how to do it by your doctor. Some types of wounds need specific care and they could need specific types of gauze as well. Wounds can become infected which not only delays healing but it can also cause fevers and sickness. If you notice any of the following signs of infection, seek medical help and advice immediately.
