Mode of Use/Application

Cleanse the wound according to caregiver instructions. Pat the surrounding skin dry. Remove the dressing from the protective foil pouch. Peel the release liner from the dressing. Be careful not to touch the foam pad. Place the foam pad over the wound. Gently rub the side of the dressing so that it sticks to the skin while trying to avoid wrinkling.

Carefully peel away the release liner from the dressing. Press the dressing down against the skin, paying particular attention to the edges. From one edge of the dressing, peel back and remove the remaining backing liners.

Removal & Change Frequency

May be left in place for up to 7 days. Dressing change frequency will depend on amount of drainage.

To remove dressing, lift up an edge of the dressing while pressing down on the skin. Carefully stretch the dressing in the direction of the skin, repeat the process in a new area until the dressing has been removed.
