The packing strips should be lifted out of the bottle with a sterile implement and folded into the wound opening. The folding should fill the wound space completely, but not tightly. A cotton swab can be used to gently guide the packing into small or tunneled areas. Cover the wound with a secondary dressing for extra protection and absorbency.
Dressing may remain in place for up to seven days.
