How do I use it? 

Before applying the dressing, cleanse the wound area with an appropriate wound cleanser.

Aquacel should overlap 1cm ( ½ inch) onto the skin surrounding the wound.

This primary dressing should be used with a secondary cover dressing. Apply the dressing to the wound and cover with a moisture retentive dressing (e.g. DuoDERM), foam dressing, gauze, or other appropriate dressing. See individual cover dressing package inserts for complete instruction for use.

All wounds should be inspected frequently. Remove the Aquacel when clinically indicated (i.e., leakage, excessive bleeding, increased pain) or after a maximum of seven days.

Warnings

Sterility is guaranteed unless pouch is damaged or opened prior to use. Single use only.

During the body's normal healing process, non-viable tissue is removed from the wound (autolytic debridement), which could initially make the wound appear larger. If the wound continues to grow larger after the first few dressing changes, consult a health care professional. The wound should be inspected during dressing changes. Consult a healthcare professional if you see
a) signs of infection (increased pain, increased redness, wound drainage), b) bleeding, c) a change in wound color and/or odor, d) irritation (increased redness and/or inflammation), e) maceration (skin whitening), f) hypergranulation (excessive tissue formation), g) sensitivity (allergic reaction), h) no signs of healing.

If you have difficulty removing the dressing, it should be soaked with water or sterile saline until it removes easily. (For partial thickness burns, please refer to the Partial Thickness Burns section of this package insert)
