Directions

Directions for Use:

Cleanse wound and surrounding skin according to facility policy. Apply enough Tegaderm Hydrogel Wound Filler to cover the wound base and any necrotic tissue, to a depth of approximately 5 mm thick, with no overlap onto the surrounding skin. Alternatively, a sterile gauze pad may be saturated with Tegaderm Hydrogel Wound Filler and placed into the wound with no overlap onto the surrounding skin.Apply an appropriate cover dressing to help manage the wound drainage and maintain a moist wound environment.

Removing the Dressing: Change the dressing as needed. Tegaderm Hydrogel Wound Filler may be left in place for up to 3 days. Frequency of changing will depend on factors such as the type of wound and volume of drainage. At the time of dressing change, rinse away remaining gel with wound cleanser or sterile normal saline if necessary. At the time of dressing change, if the dressing is adhered to the wound surface, saturate with wound cleanser or sterile normal saline, allow the dressing to soften, and gently remove. Avoid forceful removal of the dressing to minimize disruption of the wound.
