North American Rescue® is proud to lead
the way with new technology as we introduce the advanced BurnTec® first
aid dressings to our customers. BurnTec® is CE marked, and it is
currently being utilized in European countries. This hydrogel dressing
is different from other burn first aid dressings due to its
stable-sheeting hydrogel structure. The dressing has been strengthened
with a medical-quality non-woven fabric which makes it easy to handle.
This stable structure eliminates the risk of spilling or damaging the
cooling hydrogel. In other words, the hydrogel stays over the burn area
and prevents the gel from spilling off body surface area.
The constitution of the BurnTec® dressing incorporates an
aqueous composition of natural and synthetic polymers such as
polyvinylpyrrolidone, polyethylene glycol and agar, cross-linked
by a beam of electrons.
The BurnTec® cools the injured area and ensures a soothing effect
for up to 24 hours. The sterile non-stick dressing is absorbent,
trapping wound secretion and bacteria within the gel. The dressing is
permeable to water vapor and oxygen but impermeable to bacteria which
helps protect the wound from external contamination while allowing it to
breathe. The material is biocompatible and does not cause allergic
reactions. BurnTec® is a modern hydrogel dressing used for a variety
of skin injuries ranging from first, second, and third-degree burns
(thermal, chemical, & electric). This dressing can also be utilized
to provide relief from other skin injuries such as sunburns, abrasions,
bruises, swelling, or insect bites. Immediate application of the
dressing reduces the risk of hypertrophic scars. The non-stick
properties allows for painless replacement of the dressing and it does
not destroy granulation or new epithelium.
BurnTec® has received recognition for its breakthrough innovation at
the “42nd World Exhibition of Inventions and Innovation Brussels
Eureka”, “International Exhibition of Inventions” (IENA) in Nurnberg and
the “International Exhibition Genius” in Budapest.
