    What's the difference? Why are some only 4-ply, while others are 8-ply or 12-ply?

    Typically, there are several product categories to choose from. Gauze Rolls (Sterile or Non-Sterile), Gauze Pads, Gauze Sponges, Non-Woven Gauze Pads, etc.

    The most common product is the gauze pad which is made from 100% cotton and comes in different “plys” (or folds). The higher the ply, the more absorbent the pad.  On a typical 3” x 3” 12-Ply sterile gauze pad if you completely unfold the gauze pad there will be 12- 3” x 3” cotton squares.  The product itself is folded over that you have 12 “layers” of absorbency.  Hence, if you have an 8-ply pad you would have 4 fewer layers and it would not be as absorbent.  100% cotton pads also help “wick” the wound area to remove the liquid from the wound site.  Sterile product is advised when directly contacting the wound site, however, non-sterile gauze sponges can be used as packing material for a wound or to be used as a pressure dressing.  Most common packaging is 1 pad per package in a sealed and sterile pouch.  However, some manufacturers carry a “2-Pack” that are designed primarily for the hospital market where having 2-pads per package saves on time when dealing with traumatic injuries.

    Non-Woven Gauze Sponges typically have less absorbency and a lower cost point because the manufacturing process is less expensive.  These also typically have more of a more non-adherent effect on the wound site and lessen the chances of lint getting into the wound.  You would have to use more non-woven pads to equal the absorbency rate of a woven pad, so the cost savings can be negated based on the injury.
