Using Comfeel Plus Transparent under masks and goggles to protect skin at risk

This is a challenging time for healthcare professionals. The outbreak of the Corona virus is putting immense pressure on both medical personnel and medical facilities around the world. To protect themselves from infection, healthcare professionals are taking additional precautions - using masks and goggles when treating patients.

Masks and goggles, although an important safety measure, may lead to pressure injuries and discomfort with prolonged wear1,2. Research has shown that hydrocolloids can be used to protect skin at risk and these kinds of pressure injuries3,4.

How to cut Comfeel Plus Transparent

Areas where you can experience skin friction: cheek, nose, forehead.

Cut to fit areas where skin is at risk. Remember to cut before removing the protective papers.

Consider aseptic technique during handling and apply with the adhesive side of the product facing the skin. Gently swipe your fingers on the product to make it adhere to the skin.

Q:Are all hydrocolloid dressings the same?

A:Comfeel Plus delivers the protection you expect from a hydrocolloid dressing.

With the 3-piece non-touch system you get an easy and aseptic application, which means you can apply the dressing without touching the adhesive part of the dressing, reducing risk of contamination and infection.

The special monitoring grid also makes it possible for you to monitor the wound healing without having to remove the dressing.

The smooth top film and thin bevelled edges reduces the risk of the dressing sticking to clothes and bedding leading to rolling edges and the dressing falling off.

Unlike other hydrocolloids on the market Comfeel Plus is formulated without pectin, known allergens such as latex or colophony, and animal derivatives such as gelatine.
