Plaster removal can be an extremely anxious experience for patients as part of the post-surgery process. The pain associated with plaster removal is such that some patients even attempt to skip their dressing appointments. This impacts the healing process, delaying the next phase of medication which cannot be administered while restricting ventilation to the healing areas.
Plaster removal is something that should not be a daunting task. There are several accessories that can be used to make the process as seamless and pain-free as possible. For example, corn plaster removal first softens the corn then increases the hydration between the layer of the skin and the corn leading to an eventual peeling off.
Some of the other plaster removal accessories include, cast and saw accessories with a blade and a dust bag.
