• Controls odors while decreasing the amount of purulent exudate
• Gel softens necrotic tissue to aid in the debridement process
• Effective on infected and non-infected wounds
• Quickly penetrates all wound irregularities
• Non-toxic and not absorbed systemically

Mode of Use/Application

Necrotic tissue should be debrided according to acceptable practice or as directed by an attending physician. The site should be irrigated liberally with a sterile physiological 0.9% normal saline or a balanced salts solution.

After irrigation, apply Multidex®. For shallow wounds apply (1/4)" thick over entire wound site. For deep wounds, fill wound site to surface, taking care to fill all undermined areas.

Removal & Change Frequency

Dressing change should be once a day on minimally to moderately draining wounds and twice a day on heavily exudating wounds.

Remove non-adherent dressing with care. If dressing adheres to wound, soak with saline for several minutes before removing so the fragile granulation tissue is not disturbed. Flush site liberally but gently with a sterile, physiological irrigating solution to remove debris. This will leave newly formed granulation tissue undisturbed. Usual frequency of dressing change is once a day, depending upon drainage and the type of secondary dressing.

Additional Recommended Dressings

Cover with a non-adherent, non-occlusive dressing. If necessary, tape in place or use roll gauze to secure dressing.
