Smith & Nephew Iodoflex Cadexomer Iodine Gel Pads are sterile antimicrobial dressing formulations made of Cadexomer Iodine. When applied to the wound, they absorb fluids, removing exudate, pus and debris and forming a gel over the wound surface. As they absorb, iodine is released, killing bacteria and changing color. A 3-in-1 mode of action kills bacteria, manages exudate, and debrides the wound bed.

Smith & Nephew Iodoflex Iodine Gel Pad Features

  • Helps Promote Wound Healing
  • Effective antimicrobial. Exudate and debris are removed effectively. A change in color (white) indicates when IODOFLEX should be changed. Gel formed over the wound promotes moist healing. Accelerated healing rates can lead to earlier patient discharges.

  • Fewer Dressing Changes
  • IODOFLEX Pads contain Cadexomer iodine which can absorb up to 6 times its weight in fluid. Range of sizes to suit most wound sizes.

  • Patient comfort
  • IODOFLEX Pads treat infection, associated pain is reduced which can improve quality of life. IODOFLEX is non-adhesive which can reduce trauma at dressing changes and encourage patient compliance.

It has been observed occasionally that an adherent crust can form when IODOFLEX is not changed with sufficient frequency.

What to buy with Gel Pad Dressing

How to use Smith & Nephew Iodoflex Iodine Gel Pad Dressing?

Step 1 – Application
  • Clean the wound and the surrounding area with either a gentle stream of sterile water or saline. DO NOT DRY the wound surface.
  • Remove the carrier gauze on both sides of the paste using aseptic technique.
  • Apply IODOFLEX to the wound surface. Apply compression bandaging when appropriate. Any remaining IODOFLEX should be discarded.
Step 2 – Changing
  • IODOFLEX should be changed when it has become saturated with wound fluid, indicated by loss of colour, usually two to three times a week. If the wound is discharging heavily, daily changes may be needed.
  • If necessary, soak the dressing for a few minutes.
  • Gently remove the IODOFLEX using a stream of sterile water or saline.
  • Gently blot any excess fluid, leaving the wound surface slightly moist, before re-applying IODOFLEX.
Step 3 –After Using IODOFLEX
  • IODOFLEX may cause smarting especially in the first hour after treatment. Occasionally, IODOFLEX may cause the skin around the wound edges to redden. If the symptoms persist, or you experience other symptoms, please contact your doctor or nurse.

Can the Iodoflex be interchanged with Iodosorb and a dry dressing??

IODOFLEX and IODOSORB are a range of Cadexomer dressings with Iodine products, available in three presentations, powder, gel or ointment, hence can be interchanged but before that please consult with your healthcare professional.
