Recommended Use

Moderate/Highly Exudating Wounds

Mode of Use/Application

Prior to application, debride when necessary and irrigate the wound site in accordance with standard protocols. Remove excess solution from surrounding skin. Select a size dressing that is slightly larger than the wound. Cut (using clean scissors) or fold the dressing to fit the wound. Loosely fill deep wounds, ensuring the dressing does not overlap the wound margins, applying to wound bed directly.

Removal & Change Frequency

Dressing change frequency will depend on wound condition and the level of exudate. Initially it may be necessary to change the dressing every 24 hours. Reapply when the secondary dressing has reached its absorbent capacity or whenever good wound care practice dictates that the dressing should be changed.

To remove, first gently remove the secondary dressing. If the wound appears dry, saturate the dressing with sterile saline solution prior to removal. Gently remove the dressing from the wound bed and discard. Irrigate the wound site in accordance with standard protocols prior to application of a new dressing.

Additional Recommended Dressings

Cover and secure with a non-occlusive secondary dressing.
