Warnings and Precautions

Do not use on 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. Does not provide control or treatment of infection. Product expands as it absorbs, it is important to provide room for product expansion. When applying to 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. 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 any of the dressing components. Should not be used in combination with therapies involving increased heat development or in which high-energy radiation is used, since this can compromise the mechanical integrity of the product. Is not approved for use on patients with diseases like epidermolysis bullosa or Steven Johnson syndrome. Use only on indicated wounds with moderate to strong exudate levels. Should be used only under the supervision of a qualified medical professional.

Adverse Effects/Reactions

The dressing can absorb large quantities of fluid, which can cause increased pressure of the wound bed and may result in diminished tissue perfusion.

Storage Requirements

Store in dry place at 50°F-77°F (10°C-25°C) and 30%-50% relative air humidity.

Mode of Use/Application

Clean the wound as directed by a medical professional with a sterile saline solution or other standard wound cleansing product and/or procedure. Debridement may be indicated.

Select suitable product size. Do not cut or open the dressing. Folding Sorbion® Sana Gentle Dressing must also be avoided, as this reduces the product's absorbing capacity. Cover or fixate Sorbion® Sana Gentle Dressing by applying a secondary dressing appropriate for the wound condition. Take expansion during absorption into consideration and allow enough room for dressing expansion. Ensure there is sufficient contact between the wound surface and the inner layer. This is the only way to ensure the desired fluid absorption and to reduce the risk of maceration of the wound environment.

Removal & Change Frequency

The Sorbion® Sana Gentle Dressing should be examined for saturation regularly, particularly during the early phases of wound management or when used in tunneling wounds. The Sorbion® Sana Gentle Dressing should be removed before becoming completely saturated with fluid and before fluid penetrates the back of the dressing. The Sorbion® Sana Gentle Dressing should be changed in a timely and regular manner in accordance with proper medical practice.

Additional Recommended Dressings

Cover with an appropriate secondary dressing of choice.
