Multidex® Gel or Powder
Multidex® Gel or Powder fills wound sites with topical nutrients, forms a protective coating, and maintains a moist environment while controlling odor and drainage. Available with or without prescription.
• Helps maintain a moist environment beneficial for the growth of granulation tissue and epithelial proliferation
• Powder rapidly becomes a gel in moist wounds to quickly adhere to tissue and protect against dehydration
• Controls odors while decreasing the amount of purulent exudate
• Gel softens necrotic tissue to aid in the debridement process
• Effective on infected and non-infected wounds
• Quickly penetrates all wound irregularities
• Non-toxic and not absorbed systemically
• Gel protects against wound dehydration
Multidex® Gel or Powder is indicated for all types of wounds, including dermal ulcers (e.g., leg ulcers, pressure ulcers and other secreting lesions), diabetic ulcers, abdominal wounds, infected wounds, superficial wounds, lacerations, cuts, abrasions, donor sites and second-degree burns.
Multidex® Powder is indicated for moist wounds. Multidex® Gel is indicated for moist to dry wounds.

Moderate/Highly Exudating Wounds
Non/Minimally Exudating Wounds
Necrotic tissue should be debrided according to acceptable practice or as directed by an attending physician. The site should be irrigated liberally with a sterile physiological 0.9% normal saline or a balanced salts solution.
After irrigation, apply Multidex®. For shallow wounds apply 1/4" thick over entire wound site. For deep wounds, fill wound site to surface taking care to fill all undermined areas.
Dressing change should be once a day on minimally to moderately draining wounds and twice a day on heavily exudating wounds.
Remove non-adherent dressing with care. If dressing adheres to wound, soak with saline for several minutes before removing so the fragile granulation tissue is not disturbed. Flush site liberally but gently with a sterile, physiological irrigating solution to remove debris. This will leave newly formed granulation tissue undisturbed. Usual frequency of dressing change is once a day, depending upon drainage and the type of secondary dressing.
Cover with a non-adherent, non-occlusive dressing. If necessary, tape in place or use roll gauze to secure dressing.
