McKesson Contact Layer Dressings
McKesson Contact Layer Dressings are made from polyurethane film and silicone gel with open perforated structure. Conforms to the shape of the wound and allows exudate to pass into the outer absorbent dressing.
• Prevents an outer dressing from sticking to the wound
• Designed to allow wound fluid to easily transfer into a secondary dressing
• Channels allow exudate to transfer vertically into a secondary absorbent dressing and aid delivery of topical treatments

Moderate/Highly Exudating Wounds
Non/Minimally Exudating Wounds
Cleanse and assess the wound bed as appropriate. Select a dressing size 1" larger than the maximum wound dimension (length or width) to allow a minimum of (1/2)" of skin contact beyond the wound margin. Remove one side of the film liner and, without tension, place dressing over wound and surrounding skin. Remove remaining film liner and, without tension, smooth dressing over wound and surrounding skin. Use an appropriate secondary absorbent dressing to cover the contact layer dressing. See package insert for complete instructions on frequency of dressing change.
McKesson Contact Layer Dressings can be left in place for up to 14 days, depending on the condition of the wound. The secondary absorbent dressing needs replacing during the 14-day period, as and when needed.
