Mode of Use/Application

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 2cm beyond the wound margin). Remove the large part of the release liner from the dressing. Center and apply the exposed part of the dressing over the wound bed. Avoid touching the adhesive surface to minimize risk of contamination. Remove the small part of the release liner from the dressing and apply. Finalize application of the dressing, making sure that the edges of the dressing adhere well. This initial adhesion will improve as the dressing warms up. If necessary, use medical tape around the edges to avoid roll-up.

Removal & Change Frequency

Dressing must be left in place up to 7 days depending on the patient, the condition of the wound and surrounding skin. Should not exceed 30 days.
