Title: Absorbent ice bag

Abstract: An absorbent ice bag (10) made in accordance with the principles of the present invention includes an absorbent pad (12) operatively associated with an ice bag (15). The junction of the absorbent pad (12) and the ice bag (15) defines an unobstructed perimeter area that is an area of the absorbent pad (12) that extends beyond the ice bag (15). The unobstructed perimeter area provides an area of improved absorption and allows the side-by-side simultaneous placement of the ice bag (15) and the absorbent pad (12) on wound site. The ice bag (15) may contain ice (14), or other suitable phase change material. The ice bag (15) may also contain water (16), or other liquid that results from melting of the phase change
