Leukomed® Sorbact® post-op dressing features a wound contact layer coated with bacteria-binding Sorbact® Technology and an absorbent wound pad.
• Safely and effectively binds bacteria without a chemically active agent - helps to minimize the risk of infection
• Reliable adhesion that is breathable and shower-proof
• Absorbs low-moderate fluid levels
• Reduces risk of maceration
Leukomed® Sorbact® can be used for all types of post-operative and traumatic wounds with up to and including moderate levels of exudate such as: surgical incisions; lacerations; cuts and abrasions; dehisced wounds; and minor burns.
Do not use Leukomed® Sorbact® on patients with known sensitivity to the dressing components. If a reaction is observed, discontinue use and consult a physician. In common with all adhesive products, some cases of irritation of the skin surrounding the wound may occur. It should be noted that inappropriate use or too frequent dressing changes, particularly in patients with fragile skin, can result in skin stripping.
Do not use Leukomed® Sorbact® in combination with ointments, creams or hydrophobic solutions (e.g., wound cleansers) as they decrease the binding of hydrophobic microorganisms. If swelling or movement is expected, avoid applying the film at tension as this may cause tension blisters to occur. Leukomed® Sorbact® is not intended to be cut. If the treated condition worsens or does not improve, consult a physician. Leukomed® Sorbact® is packaged for single use. Do not re-use or re-sterilize as there is a risk of transmission of body fluids or contaminated tissue between patients. Do not use if pouch is opened or damaged. Prior to radiation therapy, remove Leukomed® Sorbact® and apply a fresh dressing following treatment. Leukomed® Sorbact® is safe to use during MRI procedures. For external use only. Moist wound conditions are essential to ensure the performance of Leukomed® Sorbact® and to avoid potential adherence to the wound. Should the dressing adhere to the wound, moisten the dressing to assist removal and avoid disruption of the healing wound.
Leukomed® Sorbact® should be stored in dry conditions below 25°C (77°F).
Do not expose to direct sunlight.
