IntraSite Gel Applipak System Benefits

  • Debriding action:
    - Rehydrates necrotic tissue and, by its gentle yet effective action, aids debridement
  • Desloughing action:
    - Absorbs slough and exudate without damaging fragile granulation tissue
  • Creates a moist wound healing environment:
    - Increases moisture content at the wound surface, helping prevent eschar formation
    - By keeping fragile granulation tissue moist and allowing the migration of epithelializing cells
    - Helps to create an optimal moist wound management environment
  • Gentle action:
    - Effective yet gentle action leaves delicate granulation tissue undisturbed helping to reduce trauma
  • Non-adherent:
    - Easily removed from the wound by irrigation with normal saline; without damaging fragile tissue or causing unnecessary pain for the patient
    - Contains propylene glycol which acts as a humectant (moisturizer) which prevents the gel from drying out and improves handling
  • Easy to use:
    - The unique Applipak system provides simple, directable and controlled application even in awkward wound sites

    - Intrasite Gel can be removed from the wound by rinsing with sterile saline solution.
    - On necrotic and sloughy wounds, it is recommended that the dressing is changed at least every three days.
    - On clean granulating wounds, the frequency of dressing changes depends on the clinical condition of the wound and the amount of exudate produced.

Frequency of Dressing Change
  • On necrotic and sloughy wounds, it is recommended that the dressing is changed at least every three days. 
  • On clean granulating wounds, the frequency of dressing changes depends on the clinical condition of the wound and the amount of exudate produced. 
  • If applied to a necrotic wound, daily changes are required to optimise rehydration of the wound, unless occluded with a hydrocolloid. 
  • If exudate leakage occurs through the secondary dressing, this indicates the dressing should be changed.

Precautions:
  • Known sensitivity to Intrasite Gel or any of its ingredients.
  • It should be used with care in the vicinity of the eyes and in deep wounds with narrow openings (e.g. fistulas) where removal of the gel may be difficult.
  • It is for external use only and should not be taken internally

Intrasite gel does not need to be refrigerated. It is a one-time only use. After opening and using on the wound the remaining should be discarded.
