Abdominal pads can be used as a primary dressing over large incisions and trauma sites and as a secondary dressing over heavily exudating wounds to provide cushioning, protection, and absorbency. Consists of three layers: outer nonwoven layer, fluff filler, and WET-PRUF backing. Outer nonwoven layer is soft, quickly wicking fluid away from the wound. Fluff filler absorbs and disperses moisture, using 65% of the pad to act as a reservoir, capturing exudates and helping to prevent contamination of the wound. WET-PRUF backing retards fluid strike-through, protecting both the patient and caretaker. All four sides are sealed to prevent leaking and lint residue, as well as to prevent possible wound contamination
