WOUND CARE

Wound dressing products are used most often as primary or secondary dressings to protect the wound from contamination. These products include gauze, lint, plasters, dressings, bandages (natural or synthetic), cotton wool etc.

We give you the freedom to choose from an assortment of items to meet your wound care needs, keep wounds protected and promote healing.

STEP 1: FIRST AID

The five principles of wounds dressing include wound assessment, wound cleansing, timely dressing change, selection of appropriate dressings, and antibiotic use.

With these in mind, QUIP provides a variety of dressings and tapes which are the first solution to wound care.

These include:

Quipspray - Moisture vapour permeable dressing, which provides protection for surface wounds & prevents further infection.

Quipcare tapes i.e.:

  • Quipcare Micro which is mainly used on sensitive skin especially children neonates.

  • Quipcare Trans which is the normal sealing tape used in wounds.

  • Quipcare Sili which is used in sensitive areas e.g CVC lines and Uterus Catheters.

Quiptulle - Gauze dressing impregnated with yellow chlorhexidine 0.5%W/V in paraffin.

Quip IV - Dressings intended to stop the introduction of microorganisms at the IV insertion site, which can lead to blood infection, and to help to stabilize IVs to prevent micro-movements, which can lead to phlebitis.

STEP 2: SECONDARY DRESSING

Secondary dressings are essential as they have an impact on the efficacy of the primary dressing. Their role is to protect, reinforce and cover the primary dressing. In practice, it is usually nurses who have the responsibility of selecting and prescribing the most suitable dressing for the wound.

Note that some dressings can either be Primary or Secondary depending on where they are being applied.

With QUIP, our main ones are:

  • Quipore - A non-woven dressing made up of porous and breathable non-woven layer for increased patient comfort.

  • Quipfilm - An island film dressing composed of a thin polyurethane membrane, coated with an acrylic adhesive with a non-adherent absorbent pad.
