BurnTec bandages from North American Rescue are good additions to any camper or hiker's pack to treat accidental burns.
The patented BurnTec gel cools the injured area and ensures a soothing effect for up to 24 hours. The sterile non-stick dressing is absorbent, trapping wound secretion and bacteria within the gel. The dressing is permeable to water vapor and oxygen but impermeable to bacteria which helps protect the wound from external contamination while allowing it to breathe. The material is biocompatible and does not cause allergic reactions. BurnTec is a modern hydrogel dressing that can be used for a variety of skin injuries ranging from first, second, and third-degree burns (thermal, chemical, & electric). The dressing can also be utilized to provide relief from other skin injuries such as sunburns, abrasions, bruises, swelling, or insect bites. Immediate application of the dressing reduces the risk of hypertrophic scars. The non-stick properties allows for painless removal or replacement of the dressing.
