DuoDERM Signal dressing is an adhesive, tapered edge, modern hydrocolloid wound dressing with a change indicator. It incorporates a unique ConvaTec hydrocolloid formulation that distinguishes it from other hydrocolloid dressings. The adhesive hydrocolloid matrix and the outer film on DuoDERM Signal dressing is permeable by moisture vapor and provides an occlusive barrier against bacteria, viruses, dirt and water. DuoDERM Signal dressing is indicated for the management of lightly to moderately exuding wounds. 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.

1. Wound site preparation and cleansing - Before using the dressing, clean the wound with an appropriate wound cleansing agent or normal saline and dry the surrounding skin. 2. Dressing preparation and application - a. Choose a dressing size and shape to ensure that the dressing is 1-1/4 in. (3cm) larger than the wound area in any one direction. b. Remove the release paper from the back being careful to minimize finger contact with the adhesive surface. c. Hold the dressing over the wound and line up the center of the dressing with the center of the wound. Place the dressing directly over the wound. d. For difficult to dress anatomical locations, such as heels or the sacrum, a supplementary securing device, such as tape, may be required. e. Discard any unused portion of the product after dressing the wound. 3. Dressing Change and Removal a. Note: The dressing should be inspected frequently for leakage, rolling up of the edges and/or whether any part of the bubble has reached the change indicator. If any of these occur, the dressing should be changed. As wound fluid is absorbed by the dressing, gel formation may be visible through the dressing. b. The dressing should be changed when: clinically indicated, when strikethrough occurs, or up to a maximum of seven days. The wound should be cleansed at appropriate intervals. c. Press down gently on the skin and carefully lift one corner of the dressing until it is no longer adhered to the skin. Continue until all edges are free. Carefully lift away the dressing.


DuoDERM Signal should not be used on individuals who are sensitive to or who have had an allergic reaction to the dressing or its components. Sterility is guaranteed unless pouch is damaged or opened prior to use. Single use only. This wound dressing should not be used with other wound care products without first consulting a healthcare professional. During the body's normal healing process, non-viable tissue (autolytic debridement) 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 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.
