Leukomed® Sorbact® post-op dressing features a wound contact layer coated with a Sorbact® surface which irreversibly binds hydrophobic microbes by a physical mode of action for safe removal.
• Highly breathable and conformable: reliable adhesion, skin friendly
• Bacterial and showerproof barrier protects against external contamination
• Binds bacteria via unique Sorbact® technology: Safely and effectively binds bacteria without a chemically active agent - helps to minimize the risk of infection
• Absorbent and low adherent
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.
Prepare the wound according to clinical practice guidelines and ensure the surrounding skin is clean and dry. Select an appropriate dressing size for the wound. Remove Leukomed® Sorbact® from the pouch using an aseptic technique. Remove the protective film from the wound contact side of the dressing and apply the dressing. Ensure that the green wound contact layer comes into direct contact with the complete wound surface. Carefully remove the application film, using the blue handling strip. Slowly pull it backwards, in parallel to the skin to avoid lifting of the dressing.
For gentle release, stretch the dressing to release adhesion. Pull one end of the dressing parallel to the skin. Do not pull up or backwards. Lifting of the dressing for inspection should be avoided. The dressing change frequency depends on the exudate levels and the overall clinical condition of the wound and the surrounding skin. Should the clinical conditions allow, the dressing can remain in place for up to 7 days.
