REPLICARE® Ultra Advanced Hydrocolloid Dressing
REPLICARE® Ultra Advanced Hydrocolloid Dressing offers optimal exudate management and increased absorption capacity. Polyurethane top film regulates moisture vapor transmission and micro-thin edges offer better adherence.
• Provides evaporation through an adaptable polyurethane top film that regulates moisture vapor transmission rate
• Micro-thin edges and enhanced adhesive offer better adherence, reduced leakage potential and chance of edge roll
• Allows excess moisture to evaporate while maintaining the proper moist wound environment
• Offered in a sacral design to conform to the difficult to dress sacral region
• Aids in the prevention of bacterial contamination
• Can remain in place for up to seven days
• Top film is waterproof
• Easy to clean
For health care professional applications, REPLICARE® Ultra dressings may be used in stage I-IV wounds with light to moderate exudate, such as pressure ulcers, leg ulcers, superficial and partial-thickness burns, superficial wounds, donor sites, and skin abrasions.
Do not use product on (1) ulcers resulting from infection, such as tuberculosis, syphilis and deep fungal infections; (2) lesions in patients with acute vasculitis, such as periarteritis nodosa, systemic lupus erythematosus, and cryoglobulinemia; or (3) third-degree burns.
During the body's normal healing process, unnecessary material is removed from the wound, which will make the wound appear larger after the first few dressing changes. If the wound continues to get larger after the first few dressing changes, discontinue use and consult a health care professional.
Should any signs of irritation (reddening, inflammation), maceration (over-hydration of the skin), hypergranulation (excess tissue) or sensitivity (allergic reactions) appear, discontinue use and consult a health care professional.
Do not use product if its packaging is open or damaged prior to use.
REPLICARE® Ultra is a single-use product. It should not be reused.
REPLICARE® Ultra dressing must be removed prior to radiation therapy.

The following are designed to act as general guidelines and should only be used under the supervision of a health care professional.
Cleanse the wound using sterile saline or a recommended commercial brand of wound cleanser. Gently pat dry the skin around the wound. Choose a dressing that allows for (1/2)" to 1" overlap of the wound. Remove the protective paper, exposing the adhesive surface. Use the clear, plastic handle to ensure aseptic application. Place the adhesive side to the wound and remove the handle. As REPLICARE® Ultra absorbs wound exudate, a gel is formed. When the gel reaches the upper film surface of the dressing, the dressing becomes white or opaque. Maximum absorbency is reached when the dressing becomes opaque and the exudate extends (1/2)" from the edges of the dressing.
To remove the REPLICARE® Ultra dressing, lift one corner of the dressing and gently pull the dressing away from the wound. To aid in removal of the dressing, REMOVE* Adhesive Remover may be used. Gently cleanse the wound with tap water, sterile saline or a recommended commercial brand wound cleanser. Follow instructions for applying a fresh dressing.
