Moderate/Highly Exudating Wounds
Note: always handle using aseptic technique.
Prepare wound area using standard debridement methods to ensure wound is free of debris and necrotic tissue. Place the kerasorb® dressing over the wound so that edges completely cover wound edges with approximately 1.5cm margin around the wound edges. If the wound is larger than a single sheet, then multiple sheets maybe used overlapping edges as necessary. Note: if the wound has a high risk of maceration, the dressing should be cut so it does not overlap the periwound. Secure to the wound using tape or gauze.
Change dressing every 4-7 days.
