DuoDERM CGF dressing is a hydrocolloid, moisture-retentive wound dressing used for partial and full-thickness wounds with exudate. It incorporates a unique ConvaTec hydrocolloid formulation that distinguishes it from other hydrocolloid dressings. DuoDERM CGF dressing is indicated for use on dermal ulcers including full-thickness wounds, pressure ulcers (Stage II-IV), leg ulcers, superficial wounds, partial thickness burns and donor sites. Protects against harmful bacteria and viruses such as HBV (11) and HIV (11). While the dressing remains intact and without leakage, the use of DuoDERM dressing neither guarantees nor warrants against the transmission of HIV or HBV 11.

DuoDERM CGF (controlled gel formulation) creates an occlusive moist wound environment which promotes healing of low to moderately exuding wounds 1,2. On contact with a moist wound surface, the unique hydrocolloid composition of DuoDERM CGF dressing (sodium carboxymethylcellulose, gelatin, pectin and adhesive polymers) forms a cohesive gel which supports moist wound healing 1,2, aids autolytic debridement 2 and promotes granulation 2. Provides a bacterial and viral barrier 3.

DuoDERM CGF dressing keeps nerve endings moist, which helps provide relief from discomfort and pain 4,5,6.

Directions

Before using the dressing, clean the wound area with a wound cleansing agent or normal saline and dry the surrounding skin. The size of the dressing to be applied to the wound should extend at least 1-1/4 in. (3.2cm) beyond the edges of the wound. 1. 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. Removal of the Dressing: Press down on the skin with one hand and carefully lift an edge of the dressing with your other hand. Gently roll off of the wound.

Warnings

Should not be used on individuals who are sensitive to or who have had an allergic reaction to the dressing or its components. Caution: Sterility is guaranteed unless package is damaged or opened prior to use. Single use only. Do not use this product in combination with other wound care products without first consulting a healthcare professional. During the body's normal healing process, unnecessary material is removed from the wound, which could make the wound appear larger after the first few dressing changes. If the wound continues to get larger after the first few dressing changes, consult a healthcare professional. Should you observe irritation (reddening, inflammation), maceration (whitening of the skin), hypergranulation (excess tissue formation) or sensitivity (allergic reaction) consult a healthcare professional. Frequent dressing changes on wounds with damaged or delicate skin surrounding the wound is not recommended. The wound should be inspected during dressing changes. Contact a healthcare professional if (1) signs of infection occur (increased pain, bleeding, wound drainage), (2) there is a change in wound color and/or odor, (3) the wound does not begin to show signs of healing and (4) any other unexpected symptoms occur. The dressing may be used on infected wounds only under the care of a healthcare professional. The use of this device neither guarantees nor warrantees against AIDS transmission. Store at room temperature. Avoid refrigeration and exposure to high humidity.
