Translucent backing is designed to prevent needless dressing changes that can cause discomfort and disturb healing.

More On DuoDERM Extra Thin Dressing

Instructions For Use:

  • Wash your hands, cleanse and rinse the wound and then dry the surrounding skin
  • Measure the wound to select the appropriate dressing size, allowing a 3.0cm (1¼ -inch) overlap on intact skin around the whole wound
  • Warm the dressing between your hands
  • Remove the "top" white release paper, being careful to minimize finger contact with the adhesive surface
  • Hold the adhesive side of the dressing over the wound
  • Align the dressing with the center of the wound
  • Gently apply the center part of the dressing
  • Remove the "bottom" white release paper while rolling the dressing in place - but do not stretch it
  • Repeat the above procedure on the other side and remove the clear release paper
  • Gently mold the dressing into place for 30-60 seconds
  • Gently lift one corner of the dressing
  • Roll it away from the wound while holding the skin away
  • Gently lift the other corners and pull upwards until the dressing completely peels off
  • The use of DuoDERM Extra Thin neither guarantees nor warranties against HIV transmission.

Contraindications:

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

Precautions:

When Used on Dermal Ulcers:
  • Initial use of the product should be under the direction of a health professional.
  • It provides local management of the wound site. In chronic wounds other aspects such a repositioning of the patient and nutritional support should not be neglected.
  • Increased Wound Size: Deeper tissue damage may have already occurred under an apparent superficial dermal ulcer. When using any occlusive dressing, particularly in the presence of necrotic material, the wound may increase in size and depth during the initial phase of management. Leg ulcers resulting for vasculitis may rapidly deteriorate during exacerbation of the underlying disorder.
  • Odor: Wounds, particularly those that are large or necrotic, are often accompanied by a disagreeable odor; however, this is not necessarily indicative of infection. The odor should disappear when the wound is cleansed.
  • Infection: If signs of clinical infection should develop, such as: uncharacteristic odor or change in the color of the exudate, fever or cellulitis (tenderness and erythema in the area of the wound), a bacterial culture of the wound site should be taken. If clinical signs or infection are present, appropriate medical treatment should be initiated. DuoDERM dressings may be continued during the treatment at the discretion of the clinician.
