IODOSORB* Cadexomer Iodine Gel is indicated for use in cleaning wet ulcers and wounds such as venous insufficiency ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, and infected traumatic and surgical wounds.
IODOSORB* 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 IODOSORB* therapy. Not to be used by pregnant or lactating women as iodine is absorbed systemically.
The total amount of IODOSORB* 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 IODOSORB* 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
Apply IODOSORB* Gel on to a non- adherent gauze and apply to the wound at a depth of 3 to 4mm. Place the gel face of the gauze on the wound surface and apply mild pressure for dressing placement. Cover with a secondary dressing like ALLEVYN* Life or ALLEVYN* Gentle Border.
A change in color (white) indicates when IODOSORB* 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 IODOSORB* with a gentle stream of saline or sterile water if applicable. Gently blot away excess fluid before reapplying IODOSORB* Gel.
IODOSORB* Dressings can be used under compression therapy.
