Types of Gauze Dressings

Available in woven and non-woven forms, gauze is the most widely used wound care dressing. It’s ideal for securing a primary dressing in place, in conjunction with tape, or as part of a bandage or surgical sponge.

Several types of fibers are used for gauze, including cotton, polyester, rayon or a blend. The composition may be:

  • Sterile or nonsterile
  • Impregnated with a solution
  • Perforated for greater breathability

Regardless of material or formulation, gauze has two general types:

Woven gauze uses a cotton, multi-ply composition with a looser weave, which helps with absorbing and controlling exudate and bodily fluids. Oftentimes, woven gauze resembles mesh. A wider, coarser weave is ideal for debriding, while finer weaves are better suited to packing a wound. Of all types available, woven gauze is the more common.

Nonwoven gauze is created by pressing, rather than weaving, the fibers together. This composition increases absorbency and wicking without decreasing breathability, tends to be thicker and is less likely to leave fibers on the skin once removed. Nonwoven gauze dressings are ideally used with a secondary dressing to control exudate.

Aside from these two basic types, gauze can be found in “sponge” form – a square, folded pad – or with a more flexible composition for wrapping around a wound and securing a primary dressing.

Gauze rolls can be used for securing other dressings in place. Simply wrap the gauze roll around the primary dressing and secure with tape. It is not recommended to use a gauze roll as a primary dressing, as they are not very absorbent.

How Is Medical Gauze Used?

Gauze may assist with packing, covering, debriding or cleansing a wound or holding a primary dressing in place. In a medical setting or as you tend to your wound at home:

  • Sterile environment: Gauze creates a sterile environment for post-surgical usage and healing deeper wounds.
  • Direct application: The construction allows gauze to be placed directly on the wound to help control fluids, assist with wound debridement or deliver an impregnated substance. The gauze may be treated with petroleum jelly, oil, hydrogel, iodine, an antimicrobial or a water-based substance.
  • Secondary dressing: Woven gauze is ideal as a secondary dressing, helping absorb and hold onto fluids. A closer weave is ideal as a contact layer, as it can hold onto more exudate, offers easier removal and better protects the wound.
