Single use; do not use if the pouch is open or damaged.
For external use only.
Do not apply JumpStart® 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.
JumpStart® dressings are not intended to be used on wounds with uncontrolled bleeding.
Remove JumpStart® dressing during energy-based procedures (such as radiofrequencies, 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® dressings may be used on infected wounds being clinically managed, as an adjunct to the local clinical protocol.
The safety of daily JumpStart® dressing use for longer than 28 days has not been studied.
Adverse effects/reactions include, but are not limited to, allergic reaction to silver or zinc. Dressing may adhere to wound site if dry.

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® 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.
Change the dressing according to institution protocol, as needed (when the dressing becomes soiled or after seven days of use).
