Procol® is a sterile hydrocolloid dressing that promotes a moist wound environment conducive to local wound healing.
• Creates a moist environment
• Helps to reduce residue left in the wound
• Helps to protect from damaging newly formed tissue upon removal
• Easily conforms to hard-to-dress areas and irregular wound site
• Tapered edges help to prevent the dressing from rolling off prematurely
• Covered with a breathable polyurethane film helping to prevent secondary infection
Procol® is indicated for use on dermal ulcers, surgical wounds, superficial wounds, lacerations, abrasions, first- and second-degree burns, and donor sites.
Procol® is contraindicated for use on third-degree burns.
While using this dressing, the size of the wound may appear to initially increase. This commonly occurs as the necrotic tissue is autolytically debrided and the full extent of the wound is revealed. Procol® provides local wound management. The other aspects of proper wound care should not be neglected.
Contents sterile unless inner package has been opened or damaged. Avoid refrigeration and exposure to high humidity.

First- and Second-Degree Burns
Non/Minimally Exudating Wounds
Irrigate/clean the wound with sterile isotonic saline solution or sterile water. Gently dry the surrounding skin and ensure that it is free of any residue. Choose the appropriate size Procol® dressing for the wound. It should extend 1" to 1(1/4)" beyond the wound margin. If necessary, cut the dressing to size. Peel back the paper release liner from the dressing. Apply the exposed side of the dressing over the wound. Make sure that all edges are smoothed in place and are adhering well to the skin.
Leave the dressing in place (not more than seven days) unless it is uncomfortable, leaking, or there are clinical signs of infection. To remove, press down on the skin and carefully lift the dressing, starting at one edge. Pull towards the center of the wound until the dressing is removed. Irrigate/clean the wound if necessary. Dispose of the soiled dressing per institution's policy.
