Why choose Hydrofera Blue Classic?

  • Autolytic Debridement: Use of Hydrofera Blue Classic foam dressings promotes autolytic debridement.
  • Moisture Management: PVA micro-pore foam structure absorbs and retains fluid. It becomes soft and flexible when moistened and maintains absorbency similar to other highly absorptive dressings.
  • Edge Effect: This dressing assists in the resolution of epibole or flattening of wound edges.

How to use Hydrofera Antibacterial Foam Dressing?

Prior to the initial application of Hydrofera Blue Classic Foam Dressing, the wound should be debrided of any necrotic tissue. The wound should be cleansed with normal saline and/or an appropriate cleansing solution.

Hydrofera Blue Classic Foam Dressing With Moisture Retentive Film  1. Hydrate:
  • Remove the dressing from the package, and hydrate the exposed foam side with approximately 25cc-30cc of sterile saline or sterile water.
  • Squeeze out excess sterile saline or sterile water.
  
Hydrofera Blue Classic Foam Dressing With Moisture Retentive Film  2. Apply:
  • Hydrofera Blue foam dressing may be cut to fit the wound bed.
  • If rolled edges are present, the dressing should cover both the wound and peri-wound area.
  
Hydrofera Blue Classic Foam Dressing With Moisture Retentive Film  3. Cover:
  • Place the hydrated foam side directly on to the wound with the film side on top.
  • Secure with a secondary dressing. Selection of secondary dressing is based on exudate level.

  • Change the first dressing at 24 hours.
  • If the dressing retained its blue color, the new dressing can be left in place for up to 72 hours.
