Biatain® Silicone is intended for management of exuding wounds, and may also be used as part of a prophylactic therapy to help prevent skin damage, e.g. pressure injuries or post-operative blistering. Biatain® Silicone is indicated for a wide range of low- to highly-exuding wounds. This includes acute wounds such as donor sites, post-operative wounds and traumatic wounds; and chronic wounds such as leg ulcers, pressure ulcers and non-infected diabetic foot ulcers.
A health care professional should frequently inspect and manage infected wounds, diabetic wounds and wounds which are solely or partially caused by arterial insufficiency in accordance with local standards.
In case of allergic reactions, please contact Coloplast for further information and directions.
Do not use Biatain® Silicone Foam Dressings with oxidizing solutions (e.g. hypochlorite and hydrogen peroxide solutions). Ensure that any other evaporating solution is completely dried off before dressing application.

Moderate/Highly Exudating Wounds
Rinse the wound with lukewarm water or saline solution. Gently dry the skin around the wound. The safe use of other cleansing agents, in combination with this dressing has not been demonstrated.
If any film, cream, ointment or similar product is used, allow the skin to dry before Biatain® Silicone is applied.
Select a dressing sized where the foam pad overlaps the wound edge by a minimum of one to two centimeters.
Remove Biatain® Silicone aseptically from the packaging. Do not touch the plain (non-printed) side of the foam.
Use the handles to prevent touching the dressing and to ensure aseptic application. Remove the center protective film first and place the foam part of the dressing over the wound. Then remove the release films on the sides as part of the dressing application.
The dressing should be changed when clinically indicated or when visible signs of exudates approach the edge of the dressing. The dressing should not be left in place for more then seven days without clinical inspection by a physician.
To remove the dressing, gently lift the corners of the dressing away from the wound. It is recommended to loosen the adhesive border before lifting the dressing away from the wound.
