How to use DuoDerm Hydroactive Sterile Gel?

Application of DuoDERM Hydroactive Gel:

  • Cleanse the wound site, rinse well and dry the surrounding skin
  • Unscrew the tube cap and remove the white safety ring.
  • Replace the cap to puncture the tube membrane.

  • Convatec DuoDerm Hydroactive Sterile Gel

  • Apply DuoDERM Hydroactive Sterile Gel directly into the wound. Do not fill the wound beyond the level of the surrounding skin. 
  • DuoDERM Hydroactive Gel should be changed when the cover dressing leaks or is removed for routine dressing changes. Maximum recommended wear time is seven days.

Precautionary Measures for DuoDERM Gel:

  • Colonization of chronic wounds is common and is not a contraindication to the use of DuoDERM Gel.
  • Where infection is suspected or develops during the use of DuoDERM Hydroactive Sterile Gel, appropriate antibiotic therapy should be initiated. Its use may be continued, but the progress of the wound should be monitored carefully and all treatments should be under medical supervision. In the presence of anaerobic infection, occlusive therapy is not recommended.
  • The control of blood glucose and appropriate pressure relief measures should be provided with diabetic foot ulcers.
  • The moist wound environment produced by the gel may result in autolytic debridement which may make the wound appear larger after the first few dressing changes.
  • Store up to 25 degrees C to avoid freezing.

Contraindication:

  • Do not use on individuals with a known sensitivity to the gel or its components.
