Intrasite Gel is an amorphous hydrogel which gently re-hydrates necrotic tissue, facilitating autolytic debridement, while being able to loosen and absorb slough and exudate. It can also be used to provide the optimum moist wound management environment during the later stages of wound closure. It is non-adherent and does not harm viable tissue or the skin surrounding the wound. This makes Intrasite Gel ideal for every stage in the wound management process. Intrasite gel's partially hydrated formulation allows the gel to donate moisture to drier environments and absorb in wetter environments, creating a moist wound management environment.
Known sensitivity to Intrasite gel or any of its ingredients. Intrasite gel 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. Intrasite gel is for external use only and should not be taken internally. Step 1: Prepare wound site: Remove secondary dressing. Irrigate wound with sterile saline solution to clean wound site. Step 2: Prepare pack: Remove blue protective cap from the nozzle. Swab the snap-off tip and nozzle of the pack with a suitable antiseptic swab. Snap the patterned tip of the nozzle. Step 3: Remove nozzle: Snap the patterned tip of the nozzle. Step 4: Introduce Intrasite gel into the wound: Keeping the nozzle tip clear of the wound surface, gently press the bowl of the pack to dispense gel into the wound. Smooth Intrasite gel over surface of wound to a depth of approximately 5mm (0.2 in.). Discard any unused gel. Step 5: Dress wound: Cover with a secondary dressing of choice. Step 6: Removal of Intrasite gel: 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.
