Medical Dressings, Gauze and Bandaging Material from Medline at Home

A well-stocked medicine cabinet should include medical dressings, also sometimes called compresses or bandages. They may have adhesive borders or no adhesive at all, yet they serve the same purpose: to come in direct contact with minor wounds and act as a primary dressing that covers the wound.

Look for dressings that are absorbentnonadherent (non-stick) and non-linting or low-linting (you don’t want little pieces of the dressing to stick in the wound). We carry a large selection of dressings including Medline Sterile ABD Abdominal Pads in assorted sizes plus best-selling Optifoam Dressings and Skintegrity Hydrogel Impregnated Gauze Dressings which are part of our extensive Medline advanced wound care line developed for hospital use.

Gauze is another first aid essential that you’ll want to keep on hand. Gauze is especially versatile because it can be used as a primary dressing or secondary dressing. We carry a large selection of gauze in sheetssquares and rolls and even tubular gauze bandages. Shop now and discover popular Medline Caring Gauze, Medline Sterile Bulkee II Gauze, CURAD Prosorb Roller Gauze and much more.  

Plus find medical sponges, Suresite Transparent Film Dressings and more. Stock up with bulk quantities, and get everything delivered safely to your door.  

Find answers to commonly asked questions about medical dressings and gauze below.

Do I need to cover a wound to keep it moist during healing?
Most wounds benefit from a moist healing environment1. The popular advice to let a wound dry out or air out is wrong. The Cleveland Clinic recommends treating minor cuts or scrapes with an antibiotic ointment and then covering with a bandage or medical dressing.2 

What is a medical dressing?
A medical dressing3 is a wound care product designed to be in direct contact with the wound. Because it is a primary dressing, it must be sterile, non-toxic and non-allergic. Standard medical dressings are made out of woven cotton. While cotton is still the most popular choice for basic wound care, there is a whole range of modern wound dressings made with advanced materials like foam, hydrogel, hydrocolloid, alginate, synthetic mesh, vapor-permeable adhesive film and silver/collagen.

What can medical gauze be used for?
Medical gauze is a versatile first aid and wound care essential. You can use sterile gauze for: cleaning the area around a wound (periwound); applying ointment or cleanser; covering and physically protecting a wound from germs and dirt; keeping a wound moist; absorbing fluid including exudate and blood; and cushioning an injured area. Use medical tape to hold the gauze in place directly over the wound. You can also wrap an already bandaged wound with gauze, using it as a secure secondary dressing.

How do I use an abdominal pad?
An abdominal pad is a thick, highly absorbent wound care pad that’s made to handle heavy drainage. It can be used as a primary dressing.

What’s an island dressing?
An island dressing is a medical dressing with an absorbent center surrounded by adhesive on all sides. Island dressings come in assorted sizes. There are also advanced wound care dressings that can be used for challenging, deep or heavily bleeding wounds under the care of an appropriate medical practitioner. Always read the package to determine which dressing is best for your needs.

What is a foam medical dressing?
Foam dressings are not like bandages you put on a scraped knee. Foam dressings are flexible, absorbent, primary dressings originally designed for use in medical settings. The National Institutes of Health4 says foam dressings are suitable for lower leg ulcers and moderate to highly exudating wounds as well as granulating wounds. These types of wounds should only be treated by a doctor or other medical professional.
