Mode of Use/Application

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.
