Polyderm™ GTL Silicone Foam Dressing
Polyderm™ GTL Silicone Foam Dressings are non-adherent, highly absorbent, polyurethane foam dressings. Ideal for moderate to highly exudative wounds and skin that is more sensitive to adhesives.
• Soft and gentle silicone contact layer over foam pad
• Ideal for patients with sensitive or fragile skin
• Contact layer forms a gentle bond/seal between the dressing and skin, ensuring that fluid is absorbed by the foam to help protect against maceration
• Can be lifted and moved without losing adhesiveness
• Top film is water resistant and helps to provide a bacterial barrier
• Helps minimize pain and trauma to the wound site during dressing changes
Polyderm™ GTL Silicone Foam Dressing is indicated for use on fragile and sensitive skin, skin tears, donor sites, partial-thickness burns, infected wounds, pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers, and venous leg ulcers.
Contraindicated for use on third-degree burns, heavily bleeding wounds, individuals who are sensitive to or have had an allergic reaction to the dressings or its materials, or for use during surgical procedures as a surgical sponge.
Read and understand all warnings, cautions and directions completely and carefully before use. Failure to do so may result in serious injury.
Store at room temperature in a cool, dry place.

Moderate/Highly Exudating Wounds
Non/Minimally Exudating Wounds
Carefully read the WARNINGS and CAUTIONS prior to use. Inspect the packaging for damage or defects. Replace the entire dressing if the packaging is damaged. Clean the wound of excess drainage and fluid, and thoroughly dry skin around the wound. Open the dressing package.
Peel the paper liner from the back of the adhesive dressing. Center the foam over the wound. If the dressing has a film barrier, carefully peel away the clear carrier as you press the dressing into place. Change dressing as needed when wet, soiled, leaking, or as directed by a licensed practitioner.
Place the foam on the wound bed. Cover with an appropriately sized secondary dressing to keep the wound moist and the foam in place. Change the dressing as needed when wet, soiled, leaking, or as directed by a licensed practitioner.
To remove the dressing, hold the edge of the adhesive border and carefully pull it in the direction of hair growth, lifting bandage from the wound. Dispose of the soiled dressing.
To remove, first remove the secondary dressing. Next remove the foam dressing from the wound. Dispose of the soiled dressing.
