What’s The Difference? Woven vs. Non-Woven Gauze
What are Gauze Sponges?
Gauze Sponges are disposable medical supplies commonly used in medicine and surgery, they are used to absorb blood and other fluids as they wick vertically to draw exudates out of the wounds. We offer both sterile and non-sterile forms of gauze sponges, however, it is recommended while treating open wounds to use sterile sponges only.
What's the difference between Woven and Non-Woven Gauze Sponges?
Gauze Sponges are made from 100% Woven Cotton while Non-Woven Gauze Sponges are made from a Poly Rayon Blend. This means that Gauze Sponges are coarser and used in more general applications where a wound might need to be cleaned, debrided or packed. Due to being a Poly rayon Blend, Non-Woven gauze sponges are less linting and ideal for Dialysis, Plastic Surgery, and Dermatology settings.
