Remove the release paper from the back of the dressing being careful to minimize finger contact with the adhesive surface. 2. Hold the dressing over the wound and line up the center of the dressing with the center of the wound. 3. Gently roll the dressing into place over the wound. 4. Mold the dressing into place with your hand. 5. Secure the edges of the dressing with medical or adhesive tape, if extra security is desired. 6. Discard any unused portion of the product after dressing the wound. Note: The dressing should be inspected frequently for leakage and bunching/rolling up of edges. If any of these occur, the dressing should be changed. As wound fluid is absorbed by the dressing, gel formation may be visible on the outer surface of the dressing.
