Cardinal Health™ Hydrocolloid is a bordered hydrocolloid wound dressing that facilitates local wound healing. The dressing absorbs wound exudate and creates a moist environment which supports the body’s healing process and aids in the removal of nonviable tissue from the wound (autolytic debridement), without damaging new tissue.
The dressing has a smooth, tapered border designed to be thinner at the edges to help reduce dressing roll up during product use. The propriety gelling formulation dressing material interacts with wound exudates and forms a soft gel. Due to the matrix formulation of the hydrocolloid material, most of the gel is removed together with the dressing, resulting in little or no damage to the newly formed tissue.
Cardinal Health™ Hydrocolloid dressings consist of a wound contact layer of hydrocolloids. The top layer is a semi-permeable, polyurethane film backing which allows circulation of O2, CO2 and water vapor, while excluding germs and water to protect the wound from external contamination. The dressings are moisture resistant and will remain in place during showering. The flexible, low-friction film backing reduces skin friction with clothing and patient bedding.
Cardinal Health™ Hydrocolloid dressings may be used as a primary dressing or as a secondary dressing. They may be used alone or in combination with other wound care products as directed by your healthcare professional.
May be used for:
Contraindications: Third-degree burns or on individuals who are sensitive to or who have had an allergic reaction to the dressing or its components.
Directions for Use:
A. Hold the adhesive side of the dressing over the wound and line up the center of the dressing over the center of the wound.
B. Position the "hinge" of the dressing into the area between the buttocks and gently press the dressing in place over the wound.
C. Occasionally there may be a need to picture-frame the sacral dressing using medical grade adhesive tape.
Heel / Elbow:
A. Center the dressing on the heel or elbow, leaving the precut flaps detached.
B. Affix the side flaps of the dressing to the heel or elbow.
C. Secure the center flap to the heel or elbow.
5. Remove the paper release liner completely and secure adhesive to skin. Remove the clear film release liner from the other side of the dressing and secure the adhesive to the skin.
6. Place your hand over the dressing and mold it into place for at least one minute. The warmth from your hand will help to enhance the adhesion of the dressing.
7. Remove gloves by pulling them inside out; discard in leak proof plastic bag. Wash hands thoroughly after removing gloves.
When to Remove:
A bubble often appears as the dressing interacts with wound fluid. Change the dressing before the bubble reaches the edge of the dressing. The dressing should be inspected frequently for leakage and bunching. 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. Maximum recommended wear time is up to 7 days.
