Abstract

The disposable dressing comprises an adhesive strip (1) and a central element (3) that is provided to be in contact with the skin of the user of the dressing, characterised in that it comprises a compartment (2) for at least one bubble (5) that contains a liquid, solid or gaseous matter. Said bubble or bubbles (5) are of plastic material which can be broken by pressure when the user of the dressing wants. It permits to apply cold on local bruising and also ensure burns are moisturised continuously.

Description

DISPOSABLE DRESSING

This invention refers to a disposable dressing that can be used to treat bruises, superficial der ato- epidemic injuries, exuding wounds and burns.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

It is common knowledge that cold is usually applied to areas that have suffered bruising so as to facilitate an anti-inflammatory action.

There are currently articles that are known as cold bandages, which require the bandaging of the area and the soaking of the bandages in a mixture of one or more products that react releasing cold. There are also gel bags that can be placed in the freezer or even boiled, if heat is required.

There are also other complex systems that involve applying cold by means of Peltier cells, although in order to use this mechanism it is necessary to have a series of instruments and an electric connection.

We are also aware of the imminent need to wet the areas of the skin that have been affected by any type of burn in order to moisturise the area in question, thus it is necessary to provide moisture in a more continuous manner over a specific period of time in order to reduce the pain and/or injury in so far as possible.

However, none of the systems available at present resolve the problem of providing an element that is portable and easily applicable.

DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

The dressing of the invention solves the aforementioned inconveniences, and also presents other advantages which will be described hereunder.

The disposable dressing of the invention comprises an adhesive strip and a central element provided to be in contact with the skin of the person using the dressing and is characterised in that it comprises a compartment that accommodates at least one bubble that contains liquid, solid or gaseous matter.

Preferably, said compartment comprises a plurality of bubbles. Advantageously, said bubble or bubbles are made of a plastic material that can be broken by applying pressure when required by the person using the dressing.

Likewise, advantageously, said central element is made of a material that can be soaked in said liquid. According to a preferred embodiment, the liquid contained inside the bubble or bubbles is isotonic, sterile sea water.

Preferably, said adhesive strip is a polymer of porous acrylate . According to two alternative embodiments, the central element is made of textile material or cellulose.

Thanks to the dressing of the invention, it is possible to work with a dressing that can be treated thermally and can be put on and taken off freely depending on the need to clean the injuries or burns of the patient.

The dressing allows users to apply cold on local bruising and also to ensure burns are moisturised continuously. Furthermore, the object is portable and is applied easily, thus allowing the contribution of an effective solution, both as regards therapeutic purposes and accordance with the demands and the problems that appear in terms of the embodiment of dressings used in medical first aid.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS So as to enable a better understanding of the terms stated above, a series of drawings have been included to, schematically and illustratively, represent a practical case of the embodiment.

Figure 1 is a exploded view of the dressing of the invention; and figure 2 is a perspective view of the dressing of the invention partially sectioned.

DESCRIPTION OF A PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

As can be appreciated in figure 1, the dressing of the invention comprises an adhesive strip 1, a compartment 2 for one or more bubbles 5, a central element 3 projected to be in contact with the skin of the user of the dressing, and non-stick strips 4 which are easily removable .

The bubble or bubbles 5 accommodate a liquid, solid or gaseous matter, for example isotonic, sterile sea water, and are made of a plastic material that can be broken easily.

Meanwhile, the adhesive strip 1 is preferably manufactured using a porous acrylate polymer that is tolerated by the user's skin and is resistant to perspiration and low temperatures.

The central element 3 can be made of textile material or sterile cellulose, thus said central element 3 can easily be soaked in the liquid released from said bubbles 5.

The disposable dressing of the invention can be used in two different manners . On the one hand it can be chilled or frozen for the local treatment of bruises and to minimise their consequences. In this case, the central element 3 is not an essential part. On the other, the dressing can be used to moisturise and/or clean injuries or burns. In this case, the central element 3 will be soaked in the liquid released by the bubbles 5, which can be broken easily by pinching or pressing on them.

Although this refers to a specific embodiment of the invention, obviously a person skilled in the art will know that the disposable dressing described herein may undergo many variations and modifications and that all the details mentioned may be replaced by others that are technically equivalent, without departing from the scope of protection defined by the claims attached.
