McKesson Collagen Dressings
McKesson Collagen Dressings are formulated with collagen to help control the buildup of bacteria, reducing occurrences of wound infection by layering a barrier between wounds and surrounding bacteria while promoting the spread of antimicrobial agents.
• Advanced, topically-applied wound dressing transforms into a gel upon contact with exudates
• Made from collagen, sodium alginate, carboxylmethylcellulose (CMC) and ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA)
• Cool, soothing effect of gelling action enhances patient comfort
McKesson Collagen Dressings are indicated for management of full- and partial-thickness wounds including: pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers, ulcers caused by mixed vascular etiologies, venous ulcers, donor and graft sites, abrasions, traumatic wounds healing by secondary intention, dehisced surgical wounds and first- and second-degree burns.
Should not be used on patients with a known allergy or sensitivity to animal-derived collagen, any other ingredient, or on third-degree burns.
If sensitivity develops, discontinue use. May be used under compression therapy under the supervision of a health care professional.
Do not store above 86°F (30°C). Do not store below 50°F (10°C). Avoid storage in direct sunlight/fluorescent lighting and store in a cool, dry, and well-ventilated area.

Moderate/Highly Exudating Wounds
Non/Minimally Exudating Wounds
Debride and irrigate the wound bed with an appropriate wound cleanser or distilled water before application. Cut the dressing to fit the exact wound size. For heavily exudating wounds, apply the dressing directly to the wound bed. For dry wounds with very little exudate, moisten the wound bed with distilled water to begin the gelling process. Cover the collagen dressing with an appropriate secondary dressing. Change dressings daily or according to clinical protocol.
