  • Patent number: 4950282
    Abstract: An adhesive strip-like bandage for application to skin wounds for sealing the wound without surface stitches or staples. The wound closure strips may be fabricated from a bias cut, woven, or non-woven, polymer-based material or other film, exhibiting uni-directional stretch properties which permits the strips to stretch in a controlled manner during wound healing. The strip bandages are detachably mounted to a backing member and in one configuration comprise a comb-like structure.

  • Patent number: 4599226
    Abstract: Animal tissue and the like having silver sulfadiazine incorporated therein is useful as a covering for burns and/or wounds. The silver sulfadiazine is incorporated in the tissue by soaking the tissue in an ammoniacal silver sulfadiazine solution or suspension. When the silver sulfadiazine is so incorporated in the tissue via an ammonium solution, more silver is found to be present than would normally be expected and the effectiveness of the thus treated tissue as a wound covering increases.

  • Patent number: 4596250
    Abstract: A temperature control device containing a mixture of de-ionized water, propylene glycol, polysaccharides and plant gum for providing a moldable pillow-like surface for cooling/heating and positioning body organs or parts. A multi-layered container including an insulator, a radiant heat reflecting layer and a liquid impermeable outer layer permit autoclaving and provide directional cooling/heating. The inclusion of appropriate phase change chemicals or reciprocal ion-type chemicals or metal particles facilitate the stabilization of temperature over a predetermined temperature range.
