Warnings and Precautions

Frequent or prolonged use of this product may result, in rare occasions, on temporary discoloration of the skin.
Caution: Federal law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician.

Do not apply JumpStart® Composite Antibacterial Wound Dressing dressing in conjunction with topical agents such as antimicrobial ointments, enzymatic debriders, antibiotic creams or ointments, silver- or zinc-containing creams, oxidizing agents or petroleum-based products.
The use of adhesive dressings on fragile or sensitive skin may pose a risk of skin damage upon removal of the dressing. To mitigate this risk, a skin prep may be applied on the wound perimeter prior to dressing application.
The patient should stop using the dressing and consult a physician if allergy, irritation, increased pain, maceration or any irregular skin discoloration occurs.

Remove JumpStart® Composite Antibacterial Wound Dressing during energy-based procedures (such as those using radiofrequency, ultrasound, radiation, etc.) where the dressing may interfere with delivery.
Avoid contact with electrodes or conductive gels during electronic measurements (e.g., EEG or ECG).
JumpStart® Composite Antibacterial Wound Dressing may be used on infected wounds being clinically managed, as an adjunct to the local clinical protocol.

Mode of Use/Application

NOTE: If dressing a joint, apply the dressing while the joint is in slight flexion.
1. Cleanse the wound area with an appropriate wound cleanser according to local clinical protocol.
2. For optimal adhesion results, apply skin prep to the area surrounding the wound (skin prep not included).
3. Peel back the dressing liner to expose the dotted pad, leaving the edges in place.
4. Moisten the dotted JumpStart® Composite Antibacterial Wound Dressing pad with sterile saline, water or a thin, even layer of water-based hydrogel (not included).
5. Position the dressing over the wound site, with the dotted pad over the wound. Gently press the dressing against the skin, to ensure contact with the wound surface.
6. Remove the remaining liner and smooth the adhesive down over the skin.
