Rinse the wound with lukewarm water or saline solution. Gently dry the skin around the wound. The safe use of other cleansing agents, in combination with this dressing has not been demonstrated.
If any film, cream, ointment or similar product is used, allow the skin to dry before Biatain® Silicone is applied.
Select a dressing sized where the foam pad overlaps the wound edge by a minimum of one to two centimeters.
Remove Biatain® Silicone aseptically from the packaging. Do not touch the plain (non-printed) side of the foam.
Use the handles to prevent touching the dressing and to ensure aseptic application. Remove the center protective film first and place the foam part of the dressing over the wound. Then remove the release films on the sides as part of the dressing application.
The dressing should be changed when clinically indicated or when visible signs of exudates approach the edge of the dressing. The dressing should not be left in place for more then seven days without clinical inspection by a physician.
To remove the dressing, gently lift the corners of the dressing away from the wound. It is recommended to loosen the adhesive border before lifting the dressing away from the wound.
