Petrolatum gauze is a lightweight cotton bandage which is for dressing of various types of wounds. They are made of fine, soft, gauze with white petrolatum or a semisolid mixture of hydrocarbons obtained from petrolatum. Removal of these bandages from wounds can cause minimal trauma to the wound.

Petrolatum gauze is widely used in skin graft. A skin graft is one type of wound in which a piece of healthy skin replaces diseased tissue. It is mostly used over a badly injured area, severe burns and chronic infections. Petrolatum gauze is used to cover the skin graft to keep it moist and to increase attachment. This dressing will protect the open area from bacteria. It will not stick to the healthy tissue surrounding the wound. Skin graft adheres to the cells surrounding the wound to promote faster healing.

    Good simple chest seal

    Posted by David Townsend on 08 10 2021

    Always good to have extra. Ordered the 4x4 instead of the 5x9 on accident, but found they are a good fit for my EMS bag. I find the 5x9 tend to be a better fit for smaller IFAKs.

    One of the best occlusive dressings I've encountered. Great for a pocket ifak.

    Versatile Item

    Got this as a versatile item for a pocket carry IFAK. Very thin & light weight. Can be folded to make even smaller foot print. Ideal for an inexpensive, improvised chest seal.

    Petrolatum Gauze Dressing

    Very affordable and effective option for chest seal. Would recommend these for their extremely compact (practically paper thin) design. Fits almost anywhere for people with space constraints. I used this as a cheaper alternative to start my first IFAK. It was something I could afford, knew would be effective and I could carry with me anywhere while on patrol.
