Mode of Use/Application

Cleanse the wound in accordance with established procedures. Carefully dry the periwound tissue.

Select the appropriate dressing size to ensure the dressing will cover the entire wound. The dressing may be cut in order to optimize placement over wounds on heels, elbows, etc. Apply the dressing with the foam side towards the wound and shiny film side up. Secure the dressing using a bandage or a tape over the film surface. The dressing can be applied under compression and total contact casting.

Removal & Change Frequency

Hydrofera Blue READY® can be left in place up to 7 days, depending on the exudate and clinical conditions of the wound. The dressing should be changed if it turns white. If the dressing has retained its color where it is in contact with the wound, the dressing may be left in place for up to 7 days. Duration of use is determined by the health care provider and depends on wound type and conditions.
