Sorbion Sachet® Dressing
Sorbion Sachet® Dressing is a highly absorbent wound dressing for the management of moderate to highly exuding wounds.
• Enhanced absorption and retention to protect periwound skin and promote healing
• Removes sloughs and toxins
• Reduces odor and minimizes pain during dressing changes
• Reduces bioburden through effective absorption and retention
• Variety of sizes
• Unique shape allows for flexible application on difficult to dress anatomical sites
Sorbion Sachet® Dressing is indicated for moderate to heavy exudating wounds such as pressure ulcers, leg ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers and other wounds healing through secondary intention, dehisced wounds, second-degree burns, skin fistulae, fungating carcinomas and other types of exuding wounds. Sorbion Sachet® Dressing is particularly effective when used in combination with compression therapy on wounds such as venous leg ulcers.
Sorbion Sachet® Dressing is not designed, sold or intended for use except for as indicated.
Do not apply to dry or drying wound areas and other areas with little or no exudate. Do not use on sensitive areas such as mucous membranes or the eye. Not indicated for third-degree burns. Do not use on exposed bone, muscle or tendon. Sorbion Sachet® Dressing alone does not provide control or treatment of infection. Product expands as it absorbs exudate. It is important to provide room for product expansion when applying Sorbion Sachet® Dressing, as too much expansion may adversely affect wound healing under some circumstances. When applied in a deep cavity, the wound should be monitored closely. Failure to change the dressing regularly as indicated will increase the weight of the product and could therefore cause pressure to the tissue and vessels. The intervals of the changing have to be determined by a physician in charge, based on the wound condition (degree of exudation, etc.). Do not use in direct contact with pressure sensitive parts of the body. Do not apply dressing to the respiratory tract or any parts thereof, such as mouth or nose, nor to the ears or other orifices of the body. Do not eat, inhale or ingest the Sorbion Sachet® Dressing or any of its components. Use only on indicated wounds with moderate to high exudate levels and only under the direction of a qualified medical professional.
The design of the dressing may result in rapid fluid absorption from the wound site, which may cause the dressing to adhere to drier wounds.
Store in dry place at 50°F-77°F (10°C-25°C) and 30%-50% relative air humidity.

Moderate/Highly Exudating Wounds
Clean the wound as directed by a medical professional with a sterile saline solution or other standard wound cleansing product and/or procedure. Note: Do not apply petroleum or grease-based products to the wound when using Sorbion Sachet® Dressing, since this may reduce the absorbing capacity of the dressing.
Select a suitable size Sorbion Sachet® Dressing. Allow for 1" overlap beyond wound edge; the dressing should completely cover the wound site. Do not try to remove the outer envelope. Do not cut Sorbion Sachet® Dressing. Folding the product can affect the maximum absorbency.
Cover the Sorbion Sachet® Dressing by applying a secondary dressing appropriate for the wound condition. Take expansion during absorption into consideration and allow enough room for this expansion.
The Sorbion Sachet® Dressing should be examined for saturation regularly, particularly during the early phases of treatment. The Sorbion Sachet® Dressing should be removed before becoming completely saturated with fluid and before fluid penetrates the back of the dressing.
Cover with a secondary dressing appropriate for the wound condition.
