IODOFLEX* 0.9% Cadexomer Iodine Pad
IODOFLEX* is a cadexomer iodine pad dressing that has been shown to prevent and disrupt mature biofilms (in vitro). It provides sustained broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity, absorbs slough and exudate, and aids in autolytic debridement.
• Prevents and disrupts mature biofilms (in vitro)
• Bactericidal against 103 isolates of MRSA and 101 strains of P. aeruginosa (in vitro)
• Provides broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity up to 72 hours
• Provides rapid and effective desloughing
• Removes exudate and debris
• Able to absorb up to six times its weight in fluid
• Changes color (white) when the dressing should be changed
IODOFLEX* Pads can be used in cleaning wet ulcers and wounds such as venous ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, and infected traumatic and surgical wounds.
IODOFLEX* Dressings are contraindicated in patients with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis or patients with a history of Grave's Disease or non-toxic nodular goiter. Patients with a history of any thyroid disorder are more susceptible to alteration in thyroid metabolism with long-term IODOFLEX* therapy. Not to be used by pregnant or lactating women as iodine is absorbed systemically.
The total amount of IODOFLEX* used in one week must not exceed 5.3oz (150g) and a single application should not exceed 1.8oz (50g), unless a doctor has advised otherwise. Do not use continuously for more than 3 months. To minimize the possibility of cross-contamination, a single IODOFLEX* pad should be limited to use on one patient.
Some patients may experience slight transient pain during the first hour of application.

Moderate/Highly Exudating Wounds
Clean the wound and the surrounding area with either a gentle stream of sterile water or saline. Do not dry the wound surface. Remove the carrier gauze on both sides of the paste using aseptic technique. Apply to the wound surface. Any remaining IODOFLEX* should be discarded. Cover with a secondary dressing like ALLEVYN* Life or ALLEVYN* Gentle Border.
A change in color (white) indicates when IODOFLEX* Dressings should be changed, usually two to three times a week. Remove the existing dressing by moistening with saline if adhering to the wound surface. Remove any remaining IODOFLEX* with a gentle stream of saline or sterile water if applicable. Gently blot any excess fluid before reapplying IODOFLEX*.
IODOFLEX* Dressings can be used under compression therapy.
