Blossom is a patch that detects whether a caesarean section has a bacterial infection. The maternal fear of observing the condition of the wound is mitigated by a thin flower shape sticker, and the area covered by the hydrophobia dressing is increased, while the color-changing message of the petals clearly identifies the infection of the wound. When using Blossom is attached to the maternal caesarean section wound stitching, through Blossom "bioamine sensing color change patch" can react to the bacteria under the action of the amine, reduce the risk of death from hemorrhoid fever and medical expenses.
