CovaWound™ Hydrocolloid (Hydrocolloid Dressing with Border) maintains an optimal moist wound environment which has been shown to enhance healing. Composed of an absorbent hydrocolloid matrix that has a hydrocolloid border laminated onto a breathable polyurethane film backing.
• Improves adhesion and reduces risk of edge roll
• Provides a high rate of moisture vapor transmission
• Acts as a barrier to external contamination
• Absorbs exudate to form a cohesive gel to create a moist wound environment
CovaWound™ Hydrocolloid dressing is indicated for the management of lightly exuding wounds such as pressure, leg and foot ulcers, superficial partial-thickness burns, donor sites, diabetic ulcers, post-operative wounds and skin abrasions. Dressing may also be used on small wounds toward the end of the healing phase.

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