Biatain® Silicone Foam Dressings are indicated for a wide range of exuding wounds including leg ulcers, pressure ulcers and non-infected diabetic foot ulcers. These dressings may be used for second-degree burns, donor sites, post-operative wounds and skin abrasions. May be used on patients who are in treatment for a local or systemic infection under the direction of a physician. These dressings may be used throughout the healing process to provide protection for the indicated types of wounds. Biatain® Silicone Foam Dressings are suitable for use in combination with compression therapy and may be used with Purilon® Gel for effective autolytic debridement of necrotic tissue.
A health care professional should frequently inspect and manage infected wounds, diabetic wounds and wounds which are solely or partially caused by arterial insufficiency, in accordance with local standards.

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 Biatain® Foam Dressings has not been demonstrated.
If any film, cream, ointment or similar product is used, allow the skin to dry before dressing application. Remove Biatain® Foam Dressings aseptically from the packaging. Do not touch the plain (non-printed) side of the foam.
Apply Biatain® Foam Dressings according to illustrations and application directions. Select a dressing size where the foam pad overlaps the wound edge by a minimum of two centimeters. For small dressings, an overlap of only one centimeter is necessary.
Biatain® Adhesive Foam Dressings: Use the handles to prevent touching the dressing and to ensure aseptic application. Remove the 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.
Biatain® Adhesive Foam Dressings/Sacral: Use the handles to ensure aseptic application. Remove the center protective film. Place the narrow end of the dressing as far down over the wound as possible and fix the dressing working up and outward. Remove the handles.
Biatain Adhesive Foam Dressings/Heel: Use the handles to ensure aseptic application. Remove the center protective film. The dressing is shaped like an arrow. Fold the dressing in a 90 degree angle between the arrow head and arrow tail. Let the arrow point away from the heel tip and fix the "arrow tail" first. Secondly, fix the "arrow head. Remove the handles one by one and fix the sides carefully, in order that the foam parts touch or overlap.
Biatain® Adhesive Foam Dressings/Contour: Use the handles to ensure aseptic application. Remove the center protective film and place the center of the dressing on the wound. The dressing has four wings. Fix the two wings completely, one by one. Then remove the handles one by one and fix the sides carefully. The wings can overlap or spread in order to fit the dressing to the contours of the difficult-to-dress areas.
Biatain® Foam Dressings should be changed when clinically indicated or when visible signs of exudate approach the edge of the dressing.
May be left in place for up to seven days depending on the amount of exudate, dressing condition and type of wound.
To remove the dressing, gently lift the corners of the dressing away from the wound. To remove the adhesive dressings, it is recommended to loosen the adhesive border before lifting the dressing away from the wound.
Biatain® Adhesive Foam Dressing/Sacral should be removed from the top edge and down toward the anus to minimize the risk of infection transmittal.
