Purcotton (short for PC) non-woven material applied for medical dressings, should be a historic development. The special material owns soft touching, strong drainage ability, friendly for wounds. And its advantage has been certificated by “The nursing and Rehabilitation Journal”, the core Journal of Zhejiang Province, China.
One academic paper named “Effect Analysis of Purcotton Nonwoven Surgical Dressings for Surgical Cavity Wound Dressing Change” shows the following contrast test.
According to the random number table, 118 patients with cavity-type wounds were divided into an observation group (58 cases) and the control group (60 cases). The control group was allocated with general medical gauze, and the observation group was filled and drained with Purcotton Nonwoven Surgical Dressings.
Compared with the outcome of wounds, the difference does not have statistically significant (P>0.05).
1. The wound pain score of the observation group is (2.16 ± 1.09), and the control group is (2.58 ± 1.16).
2. The secondary incision score of the dressing in the observation group is (1.23 ± 0.32) and that in the control group is (1.45 ± 0.39). The difference has statistically significant (p<0.05).
3. There were 86 yarn residual cases of wounds from the control group, but none in the observation group.
4. The observation group used (15.48 ± 7.55) pieces of dressings and each changing time lasts (120.36 ± 56.67)s. Both data are superior to the control group. After comparison, the difference has statistically significant (p <0.05).
