Do not use on patients with a known sensitivity to silver. During MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) examination, remove from area within the anatomical field being imaged. Prior to administering radiation therapy, remove ACTICOAT*. A new dressing can be applied following treatment.
For external use only. ACTICOAT* is not compatible with oil-based products, such as petrolatum. Avoid contact with electrodes or conductive gels during electronic measurements (e.g. EEG and ECG).
ACTICOAT* should only be used on premature infants (less than 37 weeks gestation) when the clinical benefit outweighs potential risks. No clinical data is available in this age group and only limited data is available for use in neonates.
ACTICOAT* is not intended to provide sole treatment for infected wounds.
ACTICOAT* may be used on infected wounds which are being managed per local clinical protocol.
