Mode of Use/Application

Grasp tabs and pull apart. Cut or trim dressing to fit and conform to the wound location. Remove release paper. Adhesive side is applied to the skin. Apply Kendall™ Barrier Wipe prior to dressing application, to avoid periwound skin damage. Use your hand to press the dressing into any skin folds and to warm the dressing, thus activating the adhesive. Avoid moving the patient for 30 minutes to allow the adhesive to fully activate.
