DuoDERM® Control Gel Formula (CGF) Dressing is a hydrocolloid, moisture-retentive wound dressing used for partial- and full-thickness wounds with exudate.
• Promotes granulation and facilitates autolytic debridement
• Can be easily and gently molded into place
• Can be worn for up to seven days
DuoDERM® CGF® Dressing may be used for minor abrasions, lacerations, minor cuts, minor scalds and burns and skin tears.
Under the supervision of a health care professional, DuoDERM® CGF® Dressing may be used for wounds such as leg ulcers (venous stasis ulcers, arterial ulcers and leg ulcers of mixed etiology), diabetic ulcers and pressure injuries (partial- and full-thickness); surgical wounds (post-operative, donor sites, dermatological excisions); burns (first- and second-degree); traumatic wounds. Minimizes the potential of exposure to nosocomial or infectious agents.
Should not be used on individuals who are sensitive to or who have had an allergic reaction to the dressing or its components.
Sterility is guaranteed unless package is damaged or opened prior to use. Single use only.
Do not use this product in combination with other wound care products without first consulting 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, consult a health care professional.
Should you observe irritation (reddening, inflammation), maceration (whitening of the skin), hypergranulation (excess tissue formation) or sensitivity (allergic reaction), consult a health care professional.
Frequent dressing changes on wounds with damaged or delicate skin surrounding the wound is not recommended. The wound should be inspected during dressing changes. Contact a health care professional if (1) signs of infection occur (increased pain, bleeding, wound drainage), (2) there is a change in wound color and/or odor, (3) the wound does not begin to show signs of healing and/or (4) any other unexpected symptoms occur.
The dressing may be used on infected wounds only under the care of a health care professional.
The use of this device neither guarantees nor warrants against AIDS transmission.
For leg ulcers (venous stasis ulcers, arterial ulcers and leg ulcers of mixed etiology), diabetic ulcers, pressure injuries, burns (first- and second-degree), surgical wounds and traumatic wounds:
Store at room temperature. Avoid refrigeration and exposure to high humidity.
First- and Second-Degree Burns
Before using the dressing, clean the wound area with a wound cleansing agent or normal saline and dry the surrounding skin. The size of the dressing to be applied to the wound should extend at least 1(1/4)" beyond the edges of the wound. Remove the release paper from the back of the dressing, being careful to minimize finger contact with the adhesive surface. Hold the dressing over the wound and line up the center of the dressing with the center of the wound. Gently roll the dressing into place over the wound and mold it into place. Secure the edges of the dressing with medical or adhesive tape, if extra security is desired. Discard any unused portion of the product after dressing the wound.
The dressing should be inspected frequently for leakage and bunching/rolling of edges. If any of these occur, the dressing should be changed. As wound fluid is absorbed by the dressing, gel formation may be visible on the outer surface of the dressing.
Press down on the skin with one hand and carefully lift an edge of the dressing with your other hand. Gently roll the dressing off the wound.
