GEMCORE360°™ High Performance Dressing is a gelling CMC-based fiber dressing with a reinforcement layer. Gels on contact with wound exudate, conforms to wound bed and gently removes intact during dressing changes.
• Carboxymethylcellulose gelling fiber technology is highly absorbent and conformable
• Unique quilting pattern wicks vertically, protecting the periwound skin from maceration
• High tensile strength with reinforced layer remains intact when saturated, aiding easy removal
• High absorption dressing, ideal for moderate to heavy exuding wounds
• Creates moist wound environment conducive to healing
• Aids in autolytic debridement
GEMCORE360°™ High Performance Dressings are indicated for moderate to heavily exuding acute and chronic wounds. Suitable to use under compression bandaging. The dressing may be used throughout the healing process on pressure injuries, venous leg ulcers, arterial leg ulcers, diabetic ulcers, graft and donor sites, post-operative surgical wounds, cavity wounds and superficial and partial-thickness burns
Do not use on patients with a known sensitivity to carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), alginates or nylon. Not for surgical implantation.
Do not use on dry or lightly exuding wounds, as the dressing may adhere to the wound.
Do not use on third-degree burns.
Do not reuse in whole or in part, as it may compromise sterility and/or the performance of the dressing.
Must not be ingested and must be kept away from children and animals.
For use under the guidance of a health care professional.
Store at room temperature (10°C-25°C, 50°F-77°F). Keep dry.

Moderate/Highly Exudating Wounds
Debride when necessary and irrigate the wound site in accordance with standard protocols. Remove excess solution from surrounding skin. Select a size of GEMCORE360°™ High Performance Dressing that is slightly larger than the wound. If required, cut (using sterile scissors) or fold the dressing to fit the wound. Discard any remaining dressing material, due to risk of contamination. Loosely pack deep wounds, ensuring the dressing does not overlap the wound margins. Cover with an appropriate secondary dressing. May be moistened to ease removal if necessary.
May be left in place for up to seven days.
GEMCORE360° Hydrocolloid, GEMCORE360° Foam Dressing or other appropriate secondary dressing.
Comprised of polysaccharide gelling fibers containing carboxymethylcellulose, this dressing is a highly absorbent and non-woven dressing which turns into a soft, cohesive sheet of gel when in contact with wound exudate. It promotes autolytic debridement and provides improved exudate management and wound healing to challenging cases.
