Gauze

How to Choose Medical Gauze

Medical gauze is a light material intended for post-surgical wound applications or deep wound healing. Many medical gauze applications are for direct wound placement and maintaining a sterile environment is paramount for healthy, uninhibited healing. The gauze dressings can be medicated or impregnated with antiseptic or made for wound debridement -- specifically in cases where the wound is large and the incidence of necrotic tissue may be present. The two general categories of gauze are made from woven and non-woven materials.

  • Woven Gauze: typically means that the gauze contains layers of woven cotton layered together into multiple ply sheets.
  • Non-Woven Gauze: Non-woven gauze is usually synthetic material made to look like a woven dressing yet maintain the same aeration ability.
