Non-woven swabs are medical products commonly used for wound care, sterilization procedures, and general medical applications. Here are some key features and uses:
Material Composition: Non-woven swabs are made from synthetic fibres that are bonded together rather than being woven. The non-woven material is often a blend of polyester and viscose.
Absorbency: These swabs are designed to be highly absorbent, allowing them to effectively soak up fluids and blood during wound cleaning and dressing changes.
Lint-Free: Non-woven swabs are typically lint-free, ensuring that no loose fibres are left behind on the wound or surrounding area. This helps maintain a sterile environment.
Soft and Gentle: The non-woven material is soft and gentle on the skin, making it suitable for delicate or sensitive areas. This characteristic is particularly important in wound care to minimize trauma during dressing changes.
Sterility: Non-woven swabs are available in sterile and non-sterile options. Sterile swabs are individually packaged to maintain aseptic conditions and are commonly used in medical procedures and surgeries.
Various Sizes: They come in various sizes to accommodate different wound sizes and medical applications. Smaller sizes are often used for wound cleaning, while larger sizes may be suitable for general purpose use.
Disposable: Non-woven swabs are typically disposable, reducing the risk of cross-contamination. After use, they can be safely discarded, promoting infection control practices.
Versatility: These swabs are versatile and find application in wound care, laboratory work, dental procedures, and general medical examinations. They are also commonly used for applying or removing topical medications.
Non-woven swabs are a staple in medical settings due to their practicality, absorbency, and the ability to provide a clean and sterile environment for various procedures. Their lint-free nature and soft composition make them suitable for a wide range of medical applications where maintaining cleanliness and minimizing irritation are essential.
