NuShield® is a sterilized, dehydrated placental allograft membrane, which undergoes a proprietary process that preserves the native amnion and chorion layers with the spongy layer intact.
• Preserves the native structure of the amnion and chorion membranes
• Sterilized and dehydrated
• Convenient room-temperature storage
• Anti-inflammatory, anti-scarring and antifibrotic
• Promotes tissue regeneration
NuShield® can be applied to a variety of partial- and full-thickness, acute and chronic wounds, including, but not limited to:
• Arterial ulcers
• Diabetic foot ulcers
• Pressure ulcers
• Surgical wounds
• Trauma wounds
• Venous leg ulcers
Contraindicated for use when there is an active or latent infection in or around the surgical implantation site, sensitivity or allergies to any of the processing agents utilized during processing, or for use in immune compromised patients.
As with all allogeneic materials, it is not possible to provide an absolute guarantee that no infectious disease will be transmitted. However, this risk is greatly reduced by using processing treatments shown to be capable of reducing this risk as well as the use of strict donor screening criteria, laboratory testing, aseptic processing and terminal gamma irradiation of final product. Single patient, single use only. Do not sterilize or re-sterilize.
Store at room temperature.

Remove NuShield® from its sterile packaging using aseptic techniques, being careful to maintain the sterility of the product. To determine which side of NuShield® is the chorion side (to be placed in contact with the wound bed) verify that the middle notch is at the top, and the notched corner is to its right, then the upper side is epithelial and the side facing down is stromal. Place NuShield® onto the wound bed, being careful to preserve orientation of the product and ensuring that the chorion side is in contact with the wound bed. Once NuShield® is placed, the product may be rehydrated, as necessary, based on the characteristics of the wound. (NuShield® is easier to manipulate prior to rehydration).
A non-adherent, non-occlusive primary dressing may be used directly over NuShield®.
