Product Description

C-Sorb is superabsorbent, non-adhesive dressing pad designed to absorb and retain large volumes of fluid and exudate.

The gentle contact layer is non-absorbent and low adherent, minimising patient trauma during dressing changes as well as allowing fluid to pass freely to the superabsorbent core. The lock-away system ensures even distribution of exudate through the dressing, minimising the risk of maceration whilst the liquid repellent backing prevents strike-through to enhance patient comfort and satisfaction.

C-Sorb is available in a wide range of sizes to suit all your wound care requirements and can be used as a primary or secondary dressing.


1. The dressing should be worn with the blue backing uppermost facing away from the wound.
2. Apply directly to the wound area, with at least a 1cm overlap on the surrounding skin.
3. The dressing may be held in place with a suitable retention aid.


C-Sorb is indicated for the management of moderate to highly exuding chronic and acute wounds including:

  • Pressure ulcers.
  • Leg and foot ulcers.
  • Traumatic wounds.
  • Surgical wounds.
  • Fungating Malignant wounds.
  • Superficial and partial thickness burns.
