Gauze is a thin type of fabric used for medical purposes to absorb excess fluid while simultaneously acting as a barrier to prevent adhesion to the wound site. It can also be used as a temporary dressing.
The main difference between Gauze Pads and Gauze Sponges is the packaging. Gauze pads typically come one per pack and gauze sponges typically come packed with two or more.
When using gauze for open wounds, it is recommended you select sterile options in efforts to avoid any potential infections and/or bacteria from entering the wound site.
The Ply Count can make a difference as well.
