Lyofoam® Max Polyurethane Foam Sterile Dressing
Lyofoam® Max Polyurethane Foam Sterile Dressing provides an appropriate wound environment to support optimal healing of lightly to moderately exuding wounds.
• Hydrophilic wound contact area promotes absorption to reduce risk of maceration
• Newly-formed epithelium does not penetrate dressing to prevent wound trauma
• Outer layer helps prevent strikethrough and reduces risk of infection
• Maintains optimum wound environment to promote healing
• May be used under compression
• Easy to apply and remove
Lyofoam® Max Polyurethane Foam Sterile Dressing is indicated for use in the treatment of light to moderately exuding wounds such as leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, post-operative and traumatic wound sites, burns and skin grafts.
Do not cover Lyofoam with occlusive films or tapes, as these reduce moisture vapor loss, which may impair the effectiveness of the dressing.

Non/Minimally Exudating Wounds
Irrigate/cleanse the wound with normal saline or wound cleanser. Select a size of Lyofoam large enough to overlap the wound margins by 2-3cm. If necessary, cut to shape. Place the smooth, shiny side of the dressing directly over the wound surface.
Lyofoam can be secured with tape or a retention bandage, or an appropriate compression bandage.
