Surgical swabs

Surgical swabs are placed on wound and post-operative surfaces to provide primary protection. They are available in a wide range of materials and formats. Surgical swabs are mostly made of gauze or non-woven fabric. They may be woven or compressed, folded or a single item. Surgical swabs may be self-adhesive or non-self-adhesive and may also be sterile or non-sterile.

If the swabs are fixed using mild pressure on the wound during wound closure they can have a significant effect on haemostasis. In practice, which surgical swab is appropriate will be determined on a case-by-case basis. Their absorbability will also be an important factor in this decision. In addition to their basic use to protect wounds, surgical swabs are also used as suspension media (for example, for ointments and lotions) and are in daily use as an aid for cleaning wounds.
