Leukomed® Control is a fully transparent post-op dressing allowing for early detection of wound infection.
• Creates optimal moisture levels and adapts to skin's elasticity
• Innovative hydropolymer technology that manages exudate
• Fully transparent to allow early detection of wound infection
Leukomed® Control is indicated for dry and low exuding acute wounds such as surgical wounds, superficial partial-thickness burns, skin donor sites, lacerations and abrasions.
Leukomed® Control is not indicated for surgical implantation, to control heavy bleeding, for third-degree burns or for placement inside deep cavities or sinuses.
Not suitable for use under a compression bandage or for radiation therapy.
Leukomed® Control is for single use only. Do not use if the package is already open or damaged, as the sterility of the dressing is guaranteed only when the package is unopened and undamaged prior to use.
Leukomed® Control may be used on infected wounds only after consulting a health care professional.
Do not use on patients with a known sensitivity to glycerine or hydrogels. In case of intolerance, remove the dressing and gently cleanse the wound with water or sterile saline solution.
The dressing may be moistened with sterile saline solution for easier removal.
Should gel fragments remain in the wound bed after removing the dressing, these may be removed by irrigation with sterile saline solution or water.
During the body’s normal healing process, non-viable tissue is removed from the wound, which could initially make the wound appear larger. If the wound continues to grow larger after the first few dressing changes, consult a health care professional.
Because Leukomed® Control creates an environment that favors the growth of new blood vessels, the delicate newly formed blood vessels may occasionally produce blood stained wound fluid. If excessive bleeding occurs, the dressing may be used together with an alginate wound dressing.
Monitor the wound carefully. Leukomed® Control can remain in situ for up to seven days, depending on the wound condition. The total duration of contact (i.e., where the treatment involves consecutive application of individual dressings) is 30 days.
Do not use the product after the expiry date.
No data are available that support the use of topical medicinal preparations in conjunction with Leukomed® Control.
For external use only.
Protect from moisture and store dry at temperatures below 25°C (77°F).
