GEMCORE360°™ Reinforced Alginate Wound Dressing is a fast-gelling calcium alginate dressing that forms a soft, conformable hydrophilic sheet of gel when in contact with exudate. Helps create and maintain a moist wound environment.
• Simple, one-piece removal eases dressing changes
• Effective gelling and fluid handling
• Highly absorbent, can remain in situ up to seven days
• Prevents lateral wicking, protecting periwound skin
• Low fiber shed and bioabsorbable
• Helps maintain a moist wound environment
• Soft and conformable to wound contours
GEMCORE360°™ Reinforced Alginate Wound Dressing is indicated for moderate to heavily exuding chronic and acute wounds and can be used during the healing process on pressure injuries, venous and arterial leg ulcers, diabetic ulcers, cavity wounds, lacerations, abrasions, graft and donor sites, post-operative surgical wounds and first- and second-degree burns. The dressings can also be used to control minor bleeding in superficial wounds. GEMCORE360˚ Reinforced Alginate Wound Dressings are suitable for use under compression bandaging.
Do not use on patients with a known sensitivity to alginates or nylon. Not for surgical implantation. Do not use to control heavy bleeding.
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 re-use 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 if necessary and irrigate the wound site in accordance with standard protocols.
Remove excess solution from surrounding skin.
Select a size of dressing that is slightly larger than the wound.
The dressing can be cut (using sterile scissors) to fit the wound. Apply to wound bed directly.
Dispose of unused dressing material according to local procedures and guidelines, due to risk of contamination.
For cavity wounds, loosely fill, ensuring that the dressing does not overlap the wound margins.
Cover and secure with a semi-occlusive secondary dressing, for example GEMCORE360˚ Hydrocolloid or GEMCORE360˚ Foam dressing.
The dressing may remain in situ for up to seven days, dependent on patient condition and the level of exudate.
Reapply when the dressing has reached its absorbent capacity or whenever good wound care practice dictates.
To reapply, gently remove the dressing. If the wound appears dry, saturate the dressing with sterile saline solution prior to removal.
Gently remove the dressing from the wound bed and dispose of according to local procedures and guidelines.
If required, irrigate the wound site with a suitable wound cleanser prior to application of a new dressing.
May be left in place for up to seven days.
GEMCORE360° Hydrocolloid, GEMCORE360° Foam Dressing or other appropriate secondary dressing.
