Smith & Nephew Exu Dry Absorbent Pad

Exu-Dryis a one-piece wound dressing made up of multi-layers. Exu-Dry speciality, upper extremities dressings are designed to conform readily and comfortably to the contours of the upper limbs.

Exu-Dry is a highly absorbent rayon/cellulose blend sandwiched with a layer of antishear high density polyethylene, a high density polyethylene outer and a wound contact layer of high density polyethylene.


  • Anti Shear Layer
  • Highly Absorbent
  • Non Adherent
  • Permeable
  • Non Occlusive
  • Compatible with topical agents

    Exu-Dry is a unique one-piece wound dressing designed to help reduce pain and trauma, save nursing time and lower total dressing costs by replacing multiple layers. Exu-Dry replaces multiple layers of gauze and abdominal or surgical pads.

    Non-adherent to the wound, Exu-Dry is more comfortable for patients during and between dressing changes. The Anti Shear Layer reduces friction and shearing and helps protect the wound. Exu-Dry's one-piece multi-layer sealed construction eliminates frayed edges, loose threads and linting. Exu-Dry will not disturb new granulation tissue thereby supporting the healing process.

    Highly absorbent, Exu-Dry reduces the risk of maceration and irritation to the wound and surrounding tissue. Exu-Dry wicks away drainage from the wound into the entire dressing, reducing the frequency of dressing changes.

    Non-occlusive, soft and pliable, Exu-Dry is available in a wide range of sizes and shapes to accommodate virtually any wound or body contour. Also, Exu-Dry is permeable and non-occlusive, and it can be used as a wet or dry dressing on clean or contaminated wounds.

    Exu-Dry is compatible with most topical agents, liquids and creams.
      Contraindications and Precautions:
      • During the body's normal healing process, unnecessary material is removed from the wound which will make the wound appear larger after the first few dressing changes. If the wound continues to get larger after the first few dressing changes, consult an appropriate healthcare professional.
      • Should any signs of irritation (redness, swelling, increased burning sensation), maceration (over-hydration of the skin), hyper-granulation (excess tissue) or sensitivity (allergic reactions) appear, discontinue use and consult an appropriate healthcare professional.
      • Petroleum jelly based impregnated dressings should not be used with Exu-Dry as this may interfere with its absorbency.
