What to buy with Silicone Foam Dressing

How to use Aquacel Film Backing Silicone Dressing?

Standard Application For Wounds

  • Always ensure the skin surrounding the wound is clean and dry
  • Choose a dressing size and shape to ensure that the central absorbent pad (area within the adhesive window), is 1/3 inch larger (1 cm) than the wound area
  • Dressing can be cut to shape for convenience
  • Hold the dressing over the wound and line up the center of the dressing with the center of the wound
  • Place the pad directly over the wound
  • Smooth down the adhesive border and hold in place to ensure adherence

Note: For Non-Adhesive dressing, use additional tape or other means of fixation

Application For Protection or Wounds

  • Keep the center pad in contact with the wound and smooth the edges of the dressing into place

Heel dressing

  • Always ensure the skin is clean and dry
  • Remove the release liner
  • Line up top of dressing with the back of the heel and secure

How to remove Aquacel Film Backing Foam Dressing

The dressing should be changed when clinically indicated (i.e. leakage, bleeding, increased pain, suspicion of infection). The Aquacel Foam dressing maximum recommended wear time is up to seven days. The wound should be cleansed at appropriate intervals.
To easily remove the dressing, press down gently on the skin and carefully lift one corner of the dressing. Continue until all edges are free. Carefully lift away the dressing and discard according to local clinical protocols.
