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 four to seven days.
