For maximum benefits, the health care provider should identify the deepest part of the wound, the condition and the stage of the wound to assist in the placement of the This information will be used to identify the area where the antimicrobial gauze will be applied into. It is recommended that the health care provider always apply the antimicrobial gauze into the deepest part of the wound, or the widest part of the wound, depending on the condition of the wound.
First, depending on the size of the wound, the health care provider will have us a clean scissor and cut the silicon drain accordingly. The length of the silicon drain will be determined by the length of the largest part of the wound minus 1cm. For example, if the largest part of the wound is 5cm in length, or width, simply cut the tube using a clean scissors to 4cm, beginning on the first set of holes on the tubing.
Secondly, the size of the gauze will be determined depending on the size of the wound. Each pack comes with 2 pieces of antimicrobial gauze. The gauze does have to be moistened with saline.
Thirdly, place the cut tubing on the gauze and fold the gauze over the top of the tubing.
Place the wrapped gauze into the largest part of the wound, and hold on to it while you apply the Coloplast paste below and above the drain tube on the outside of the wound. Cover the dressing with transparent film making sure there is an inch of transparent film bordering the wound and covering the area with the Coloplast paste. After that, place a medical tape over the tube to prevent the tube from moving around that may cause the dressing to have a leakage. Finally, connect the silicon drain tubing to the open end of the tubing assembly.
After completion of Phase I and Phase II of the dressing procedure above, turn the Genadyne A4-NPWT Wound Vacuum System on and you will see a sealed and compact dressing on the wound of the patient.
