DuoDerm Extra Thin dressing is designed to lessen the risk of additional skin breakage due to friction. This dressing can be used as a primary hydrocolloid dressing for dry to lightly exuding wounds.

The European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (EPUAP) and The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP) guidelines recommend the usage of hydrocolloids for the management of pressure ulcers. DuoDERM® Extra Thin Dressing can be used to manage stage I and stage II pressure ulcers.

It combines a unique ConvaTec hydrocolloid formulation that distinguishes it from other hydrocolloid dressings and a vapour permeable outer film to provide an occlusive moist environment.

Warnings

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

Do not use this product in combination with other wound care products without first consulting a health care professional.

During the body's normal healing process, unnecessary material is removed from the wound, which could make the wound appear larger after the first few dressing changes. If the wound continues to get larger after the first few dressing changes, consult a health care professional.

Should you observe irritation (reddening, inflammation), maceration (whitening of the skin), hypergranulation (excess tissue formation) or sensitivity (allergic reaction), consult a health care professional.

Frequent dressing changes on wounds with damaged or delicate skin surrounding the wound is not recommended. The wound should be inspected during dressing changes. Contact a health care professional if
(1) signs of infection occur (increased pain, bleeding, wound drainage),
(2) there is a change in wound color and/or odor,
(3) the wound does not begin to show signs of healing and/or
(4) any other unexpected symptoms occur.

The dressing may be used on infected wounds only under the care of a health care professional.
The use of this device neither guarantees nor warrants against AIDS transmission.

For leg ulcers (venous stasis ulcers, arterial ulcers and leg ulcers of mixed etiology), diabetic ulcers, pressure injuries, burns (first- and second-degree), surgical wounds and traumatic wounds:
Treatment of the above wound types should be under the supervision of a health care professional.
Appropriate supportive measures should be taken where indicated (e.g., use of graduated compression bandaging in the management of venous leg ulcers or pressure relief measures in the management of pressure injuries).

Colonization of chronic wounds is common and is not a contraindication to the use of the dressing. The dressing may be used on infected wounds under medical supervision together with appropriate therapy and frequent monitoring of the wound. In the presence of a clinical anaerobic infection, occlusive therapy is not recommended.
The control of blood glucose as well as appropriate supportive measures should be provided with diabetic foot ulcers.
