How do you use DuoDERM CGF Dressing?

Directions for using DuoDERM Dressing:

Before using the DuoDERM CGF Sterile dressing, clean the wound area with a wound cleansing agent or normal saline and dry the surrounding skin. The size of the dressing to be applied to the wound should extend at least 1-1/4 inch (3.2 cm) beyond the edges of the wound.
  1. Remove the release paper from the back of the DuoDERM hydrocolloid dressing being careful to minimize finger contact with the adhesive surface.
  2. Hold the dressing over the wound and line up the center of the dressing with the center of the wound.
  3. Gently roll the dressing into place over the wound.
  4. Mold the dressing into place with your hand.
  5. Secure the edges of the dressing with medical or adhesive tape, if extra security is desired.
  6. Discard any unused portion of the product after dressing the wound.
Note: The DuoDERM CGF dressing should be inspected frequently for leakage and bunching/rolling up of edges. If any of these occur, the dressing should be changed. As wound fluid is absorbed by the dressing, gel formation may be visible on the outer surface of the dressing.

Removal of DuoDERM Dressing:

  1. Press down on the skin with one hand and carefully lift an edge of the DuoDERM skin dressing with your other hand.
  2. Gently roll off the dressing of the wound.

Precautionary Measures for DuoDERM CGF:

  • Sterility is guaranteed unless the package is damaged or opened prior to use. Single use only.
  • Do not use DuoDERM hydrocolloid dressing in combination with other wound care products without first consulting a healthcare professional.
  • During the body’s normal healing process, the unnecessary material is removed from the wound, which could make the wound appear larger after the first few dressing changes. If the wound continues to get larger after the first few dressing changes, consult a healthcare professional.
  • Should you observe irritation (reddening, inflammation), maceration (whitening of the skin), hypergranulation (excess tissue formation) or sensitivity (allergic reaction) consult a healthcare professional.
  • Frequent dressing changes on wounds with the damaged or delicate skin surrounding the wound are not recommended. The wound should be inspected during dressing changes. Contact a healthcare professional if:
    - signs of infection occur (increased pain, bleeding, wound drainage),
    - there is a change in wound color and/or odor,
    - the wound does not begin to show signs of healing and
    - any other unexpected symptoms occur.
  • The dressing may be used on infected wounds only under the care of a healthcare professional.
  • The use of this device neither guarantees nor warranties against AIDS transmission.

In addition, for leg ulcers (venous stasis ulcers, arterial ulcers and leg ulcers of mixed ), diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, burns (first and second degree), surgical wounds and traumatic wounds:
  • Treatment of the above wound types should be under the supervision of a healthcare professional.
  • Appropriate supportive measures should be taken where indicated (e.g., use of graduated compression bandaging in the management of venous leg ulcers or pressure relief measures in the management of pressure ulcers).
  • Colonization of chronic wounds is common and is not a contraindication to the use of the dressing. The dressing may be used on infected wounds under medical supervision together with appropriate therapy and frequent monitoring of the wound. In the presence of a clinical anaerobic infection, occlusive therapy is not recommended.
  • The control of blood glucose, as well as, appropriate supportive measures should be provided with diabetic foot ulcers.

Contraindication:

  • Should not be used on individuals who are sensitive to or who have had an allergic reaction to the dressing or its components.
