Do not use AQUACEL® EXTRA™ Hydrofiber® Wound Dressing with Strengthening Fiber on patients who are sensitive to the dressing or its components or have had an allergic reaction to the dressing.

Warnings and Precautions

Sterility is guaranteed unless pouch is damaged or opened prior to use.
This device is for single use only and should not be reused. Reuse may lead to increased risk of infection or cross contamination. Physical properties of the dressing may no longer be optimal for intended use.
Should you see irritation (reddening inflammation), maceration (whitening of skin), hypergranulation (excess tissue formation), sensitivity or allergic reaction, call a health care professional.
Call a health care professional if (1) signs of infection occur (increased pain, increase redness, wound drainage), (2) there is a change in wound color and/or odor, (3) the wound does not begin to show signs of healing or (4) any other unexpected symptoms occur.
The dressing may be used on infected wounds only under supervision of a health care professional.
During the body's normal healing process, unnecessary material is removed from the wound which could make the wound appear larger after the first few dressing changes. If the wound continues to get larger after the first few dressing changes, call a health care professional.
Because AQUACEL® EXTRA™ Hydrofiber® Wound Dressing with Strengthening Fiber provides a moist environment that supports the growth of new blood vessels, occasionally the delicate newly formed blood vessels may produce a blood stained wound fluid.
AQUACEL® EXTRA™ Hydrofiber® Wound Dressing with Strengthening Fiber should not be used with other wound care products, other than those listed in the DIRECTIONS FOR USE section, without first checking with a health care professional.
If you have difficulty removing the dressing, the dressing should be fully saturated with sterile saline or sterile water and allowed to soak into the dressing.
