EXU-DRY* Anti-Shear Wound Dressing
EXU-DRY* Anti-Shear Wound Dressing is a one-piece, multilayer, highly-absorbent, non-adherent wound dressing designed to minimize trauma and save nursing time. Anti-shear layer helps reduce friction and shearing.
• Sealed construction reduces linting and frayed edges
• Disperses exudate throughout the dressing
• Highly absorbent cellulose/rayon blend filler reduces the risk of maceration of periwound skin
• Does not adhere to the wound, protecting fragile granulation tissue
• Can be used as a wet or dry dressing on clean or contaminated wounds
• Compatible with most topical agents, liquids and creams
EXU-DRY* Wound Dressing may be used for wounds such as: venous ulcers, arterial ulcers, diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, donor sites, surgical incisions and excisions, skin grafts, bio-engineered skin substitutes, burns, and draining wounds. Also may be used for the treatment of the following: moist skin desquamation, fungating neoplasms, chemotherapy extravasation, Kaposi's sarcoma, lymphedema, graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), and sloughing skin disorders.
Petroleum jelly based impregnated dressings should not be used with EXU-DRY* as this may interfere with its absorbency.
During the body's normal healing process, unnecessary material is removed from the wound which will 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 an appropriate health care professional.
Should any signs of irritation (redness, swelling, increased burning sensation), maceration (over-hydration of the skin), hyper-granulation (excess tissue) or sensitivity (allergic reactions) appear, discontinue use and consult an appropriate health care professional.

Moderate/Highly Exudating Wounds
When using an EXU-DRY* dressing, select a size slightly larger than the wound area.
For use as a dry dressing: Before application, topical agents may be applied directly to the wound or onto the dressing.
For use as a wet dressing: Submerge the dressing in liquid topical agent and gently squeeze out (do not ring out) the excess.
For use as a secondary dressing: This product may be used in combination with other products (calcium alginates, gels, foams, etc.) that have been used to pack a wound.
After the dressing is in place (the back side is marked "Use other side against wound"), secure the dressing with tape, netting or gauze.
