JumpStart™ Antimicrobial Wound Dressing
JumpStart™ is an antimicrobial wound dressing powered by Advanced Microcurrent Technology™. Intended for the management of partial- and full-thickness wounds.
• Broad spectrum antimicrobial efficacy, including against multi-drug resistant and biofilm-forming bacteria
• Conforms to wound site
• Cut to fit
JumpStart™ Antimicrobial Wound Dressing is indicated for professional use for partial- and full-thickness wounds such as pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, diabetic ulcers, burns, surgical site incisions, donor and/or recipient graft sites.
Contraindicated for use on individuals with sensititivity/allergy to silver or zinc. Neither MRI-safe nor MRI-compatible and should not be used in conjunction with MRI systems.
Frequent or prolonged use of silver may result in permanent discoloration of skin and mucous membranes (e.g., argyria).
Caution: Federal law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician.
Single use; do not use if the pouch is open or damaged.
For external use only.
Do not use JumpStart with topical agents such as antimicrobial ointments, enzymatic debriders,
antibiotic creams, silver or zinc containing creams, oxidizing agents, petroleum based products, etc.
Secondary dressings should be used as stated in manufacturer’s Instructions for Use.
The patient should stop using the dressing and consult a physician if allergy, irritation, increased pain, maceration or any irregular skin discoloration occurs.
JumpStart is not intended to be used on wounds with uncontrolled bleeding.
Remove JumpStart dressing during energy-based procedures (such as electricity, radiofrequencies, ultrasound, radiation, etc.) where the dressing may interfere with delivery.
Avoid contact with electrodes or conductive gels during electronic measurements; e.g., EEG or ECG.
JumpStart may be used on infected wounds that are being managed in accordance with institutional clinical protocols for infection abatement as an adjunct to the standard treatment regimen.
The safety of daily JumpStart use for longer than 28 days has not been studied.
Adverse effects/reactions include, but are not limited to allergic reaction to silver or zinc, dressing may adhere to wound site if dry.
Store in dry conditions at room temperature. Protect from light.

Moderate/Highly Exudating Wounds
Non/Minimally Exudating Wounds
1. Cleanse the wound area with an appropriate wound cleanser according to local clinical protocol.
2. Remove JumpStart from package and if needed, cut to a shape that will extend beyond wound edges 1 to 2 cm (1/2 inch to 1 inch). Caution: cutting may result in fraying of the dressing.
3. Moisten JumpStart with sterile saline, water or a thin, even layer of water-based hydrogel (not included).
4. Apply JumpStart dressing to the wound site, with the dotted side down, in direct contact with the wound surface.
5. Cover JumpStart with an appropriate secondary sterile dressing which will help maintain a moist wound environment. The choice of secondary dressing should be determined by the degree of exudate produced by the wound, for example:
• For dry wounds: waterproof, semi-permeable or hydrogel-like dressings are recommended to ensure prolonged moisture.
• For exudating wounds: cover JumpStart with layer(s) of sterile gauze or foam dressing to absorb excessive moisture and prevent maceration. Then apply a semi-permeable or hydrogel-like dressing.
If needed, secure in place with an additional fixation dressing, using care not to restrict blood flow.
6. Keep the dressing moist by re-moistening as necessary. Avoid over-soaking. Example:
• Dry wounds may require more frequent re-moistening of the dressing(s).
• Exudating wounds require dressing re-moistening only if exudate decreases and the dressing becomes dry.
Change the dressing according to institution protocol, as needed (when the dressing becomes soiled, or after seven days of use).
Waterproof or semi-permeable dressing cover.
