More Information

  • Precautions
    - For external use only
    - It is not compatible with oxidizing agents or hydrogen peroxide, as these can break down the absorbent polyurethane component of the dressing
    - Dressings are not intended to provide treatment for infected wounds
    - May be used on infected wounds being managed in accordance with institutional clinical protocols for infection abatement as an adjunct to the standard treatment regimen to provide a barrier to bacterial penetration
    - May not be compatible with topical anti-microbials
    - In common with all adhesive products, some cases of irritation and/or maceration of the skin surrounding the wound may be observed
    - It should be noted that inappropriate use or too frequent dressing changes, particularly on patients with fragile skin may result in skin stripping
    - Avoid contact with electrodes or conductive gels during electronic measurements e.g. EEG and ECG
    - When used on a patient during MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) examination some warming may be experienced
    - It is not compatible with oil based products such as petrolatum
    - Not suitable for use on cavity wounds but may be used over cavity wounds as a secondary dressing
    - As with all products containing silver sulfadiazine the following precautions should be noted, especially when covering a large surface area with the dressing
    - Use caution in patients with significant hepatic or renal impairment
    - Use caution in individuals known to have glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency
    - Effects of systemically administered drugs may be altered
    - This can especially apply to oral hypoglycaemic agents and to phenytoin
    - In the case of these drugs, it is recommended that blood levels should be monitored as their effect can be potentiated
  • Instructions for Use:
    Step 1
    - Select an appropriate size dressing
    - Prepare and clean the skin around the wound
    - Skin prep protective wipes may be used to protect fragile skin
    - Peel back the protector papers and anchor the dressing over the wound
    - Smooth the dressing into place, ensuring that the edges of the dressing are not wrinkled
    Step 2
    - During the early stages of treatment, dressings should be inspected frequently; dressings can be left in place until exudate can be seen through the outer waterproof film layer and approaches 3/4" from the edge of the dressing
    Step 3
    - To remove, lift one corner of the dressing and lift it gently away from the wound
