Mode of Use/Application

Prior to the initial application of the dressing, the wound should be debrided of any necrotic tissue. The wound should be cleansed with normal saline and/or an appropriate wound cleansing solution.

Open the dressing package, keeping the dressing on the inside of the package. The dressing may be cut with sterile scissors to fit the wound bed. An appropriate liquid barrier film wipe may be used on the periwound skin. If the wound presents with surrounding erythema or rolled wound edges (epibole), the dressing should be larger than the wound to cover the periwound skin. Moisten the dressing with sterile saline or sterile water, and squeeze out the excess. Apply the dressing to the wound. The dressing may be folded or layered to ensure desired fit. NOTE: Hydrofera Blue CLASSIC® dressings with moisture retentive film may not be folded or layered. Secure with secondary dressing to prevent displacement and to maintain moisture content.

Removal & Change Frequency

The dressing can be left in place for up to 3 days, depending on the clinical condition of the wound. Duration of use is determined by health care provider and depends on wound type and conditions.

Additional Recommended Dressings

It is important to choose the correct secondary dressing depending on wound exudate. Examples of secondary dressings include: transparent film, impregnated gauze, foam dressing, absorbent pad, or gauze.


PVA foam and 2 organic dyes, methylene blue and gentian violet.
