The dressing ensures that the wound remains isolated and creates and maintains a balanced moist environment that is ideal for granulation and epidermal processes.
MECHANISM OF ACTION:
Upon contacting the wound exudate, the hydrocolloid layer of the dressing increases in volume and hence forms a soft yellowish gel under which the healing process takes place. When the time comes for a dressing change, it is easy to remove without trauma or pain.
- shallow wounds with yellow, diffuse necrotic tissue
- wounds in the granulation phase and early epidermal process phase
- chronic wounds that have difficulty healing
Wound exudate level: minimal or medium.
1. Rinse the wound with POLISEPT® VET IRRIGATION or POLISEPT® VET SPRAY, if necessary (in the case of necrosis, the necrotic layers should be removed before applying the dressing).
2. Dry the skin around the wound.
3. Adjust the size of the dressing such that it covers the entire surface of the wound. Leave an additional 2-3 cm margin (if a large wound needs to be covered, several overlapping dressings can be applied).
4. Place the POLISEPT® VET H Dressing directly on the wound and gently press down the edges of the dressing.
