¿What is xeroform petrolatum dressing gauze?
Xeroform gauze is a type of medical dressing consisting of finely woven mesh medical gauze infused with a blend of petrolatum and 3% Bismuth Tribromophenate. It is used for openwounds such as lacerations, burns, new circumcisions, and surgical incisions. This gauze is particularly useful as a dressing because it is non-adherent, meaning it won't stick to wounds, and it has antiseptic and antibacterial qualities that help keep wounds from becoming infected. Xeroform is a popular dressing because it is easy to use and is effective in the management of many different types of open wounds.
The Kendall Xeroform Petrolatum Gauze is a medicating, deodorizing, occlusive and non-adhering wound dressing composed of 3% Bismuth tribromophenate in a petrolatum blend on fine mesh gauze.

Each dressing is sealed in a sterile, convenient, peel-open, tamper-proof foil pouch. Xeroform is available in four sizes: 1"x8", 2"x2", 4"x4", and 5"x9". Sold individually or by the box.

Xeroform impregnated dressings are similar to Petrolatum Gauze dressings, with the addition of 3% bismuth tribromophenate.

The overwrap version of these dressings provides an additional layer of sterility for use in environments such as operating rooms. Latex Free.
