Warnings and Precautions

OPSITE* FLEXIGRID* may be used on clinically infected wounds if the following precautions are followed:
The patient should be under medical/clinical supervision.
The dressing should be changed daily.
The patient should be receiving suitable systemic treatment.

Immuno-compromised patients and diabetic patients may require extra supervision. Care should be taken to avoid skin damage by repeated applications on patients with thin or fragile skin.

As is common with all adhesive products, some cases of irritation and/or maceration of the skin surrounding the wound have been reported. It should be noted that inappropriate use or too frequent dressing changes, particularly in patients with fragile skin, can result in skin stripping.

Mode of Use/Application

Wash hands before and after treating the wound. Gently clean the wound, removing any debris and dry the surrounding skin. Ensure surrounding skin remains dry before application. Do not apply to heavily bleeding wounds.

Remove dressing from pouch. Remove the backing paper marked 1, taking care not to touch the adhesive side. Place the dressing over the wound using light pressure. Remove the backing paper marked 2, and smooth the dressing down. Press around the edges of the dressing.

If required, record the wound size. Remove the green grid and keep in patient's records.

Removal & Change Frequency

To remove the dressing, lift one corner and slowly stretch the film in a motion that is parallel to the skin. Handle and dispose of the used dressing with care. Can be left in place for up to 7 days.
