CovaWound™ Foam (Non-Adherent Foam Dressing)
CovaWound™ Foam is a non-adherent foam dressing composed of a soft, conformable, highly absorbent polyurethane foam with a breathable polyurethane film backing. The outer layer protects against eschar formation and is also waterproof, protecting against external contamination, while maintaining a moist wound environment.
• Enables healing to progress by creating and maintaining a moist healing environment
• The breathable pink outer layer protects against eschar formation and is also waterproof, protecting against external contamination
• Soft and conformable providing an optimal moist healing environment and excellent patient comfort
• As it absorbs exudate, it may swell slightly but will not leave debris in the wound
CovaWound™ Foam is indicated for the management of moderate to heavily exuding wounds such as; pressure, leg, diabetic and foot ulcers, superficial and partial-thickness burns, donor sites, trauma wounds and post-operative surgical wounds. It can be used under compression bandaging. CovaWound™ Foam does not adhere to the wound and, therefore, is recommended for wounds surrounded by sensitive skin, such as venous ulcers.
CovaWound™ Foam should not be applied to surgical implantations, to dry or lightly exuding wounds or to control heavy bleeding.
Do not use with oxidizing agents such as hypochlorite solution (e.g., Dakin's) or hydrogen peroxide, as these can break down the absorbent component of the dressing. If sensitivity develops, discontinue use. Dressing should not be used on patients with a known sensitivity to polyurethane foams or films. Use on infected wounds should only be under the discretion of the attending medical practitioner/clinician. Not indicated for use on third-degree burns and should only be used under the direction of a health care professional.

Moderate/Highly Exudating Wounds
Clean the wound area with normal saline or distilled water. Gently dry the surrounding skin and ensure that it is free of any residue. Choose the size and shape of the dressing which is most suitable (the dressing should extend 3/4" (2cm) beyond the wound margin). Remove the dressing from the packaging. Remove the release liner from the dressing and apply the white side of the non-adherent foam dressing to the wound. A retention method such as taping onto intact skin or bandaging in place with an appropriate bandage or a film dressing is acceptable.
CovaWound™ Foam dressing may be left in place for up to seven days depending on the amount of exudate and the condition of the wound. CovaWound™ Foam dressing should be changed when visible signs of exudate approach the edge of the dressing. The accumulative use of CovaWound™ Foam dressing should not exceed 30 days.
May be used as a secondary dressing to ColActive® Plus (Collagen Matrix Dressing) or ColActive® Plus Ag (Collagen Matrix Dressing with Silver).
