McKesson Collagen Dressings transform into soothing gel upon contact with exudate. Alginate and CMC absorb wound drainage while maintaining an optimal moisture balance to aid in the formation of granulation tissue and epithelialization.
• Cool, soothing effect of gelling action enhances patient comfort
• Formulated with collagen to help control the buildup of bacteria, reducing occurrences of wound infection by layering a barrier between wounds and surrounding bacteria while promoting the spread of antimicrobial agents
• Collagen and EDTA work together to moderate the elevated activity of matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) by targeting and deactivating excess MMPs, triggering the healing process in chronic wounds
• EDTA creates a suitable environment for wound healing by removing zinc to inhibit the activity of MMPs
• Sheets may be trimmed to exact wound size and/or layered for the management of deep wounds
• For use when chronic wounds, such as diabetic ulcers, are out of balance and need a more advanced dressing to help restart the healing process
McKesson Collagen Dressings are indicated for management of full- and partial-thickness wounds including pressure injuries, diabetic ulcers, ulcers caused by mixed vascular etiologies, venous ulcers, donor and graft sites, abrasions, traumatic wounds healing by secondary intention, dehisced surgical wounds and first- and second-degree burns.
McKesson Collagen Dressings should not be used on patients with a known allergy or sensitivity to animal-derived collagen or any other ingredient or on third-degree burns.
If sensitivity to McKesson Collagen Dressing develops, discontinue use. McKesson Collagen Dressings may be used under compression therapy under the supervision of a health care professional.

Debride and irrigate the wound bed with an appropriate wound cleanser or distilled water before application.
Cut the dressing to fit the exact wound size. For heavily exuding wounds, apply the dressing directly to the wound bed. For dry wounds with very little exudate, moisten the wound bed with distilled water to begin the gelling process.
Cover the McKesson Collagen Dressing with an appropriate secondary dressing.
Change dressings daily or as good nursing practice dictates. Remove the secondary dressing with care. Gently remove McKesson Collagen Dressing, ensuring that the dressing removal does not damage any newly formed tissue.
Use an appropriate wound cleanser or distilled water to cleanse the wound site prior to applying a new McKesson Collagen Dressing as per application instructions.
Cover with an appropriate secondary dressing depending on the amount of exudate and frequency of dressing change.
