Small DermaProx™ Pad
Breathable, Adhesive-Free Protection - 40527
It’s often said that less is more. Such is the case with DermaProx™. It has been so effective at protecting patients from HAPIs on our Surgical BackPack™ spinal kits that we've made it available as a stand-alone product. But it's just as much about what DermaProx won’t do as it is about what it will do.
There is no adhesive layer to compromise airflow, or risk skin tearing, or remain on table surfaces to hold contaminants. It won't trap moisture which can place patients at risk for skin maceration. What it will do is allow airflow to the patient's skin, promoting breathability, keeping skin dry and intact. It will eliminate friction, providing a barrier against abrasion and shearing. It will show a visible reduction in post-operative skin redness — an early indicator of the onset of dermal breakdown. It will provide you the freedom to fine tune patient positioning. Most of all, it will grant you peace of mind. DermaProx is designed to comply with the AORN Guideline for Positioning the Patient and reduces risk of CMS Never Events. Include DermaProx in your pressure injury prevention program to protect bony prominences and trouble areas such as the sacrum, iliac crests and heels. Experience the DermaProx Difference.
