What are the benefits of using it? 

 

High gelled strength and structural integrity for clean one piece removal. Excellent absorbency for effective fluid management and minimal risk of peri-wound maceration. Minimal dressing shrinkage for sustained coverage and optimal dressing efficiencies. Soft and highly conformable for uncompromised patient comfort.

How to use it? 

Instructions for Use:

1) Cleanse the wound according to local clinical protocol.

2) Select the appropriate dressing size.

3) Remove the DURAFIBER dressing from pack, using a clean technique. Cut to shape if necessary.
 
4) Apply the dressing to the wound and allow for a 1cm / 1/3in. dressing overlap onto the skin surrounding the wound.

5) When using DURAFIBER ribbon in deep cavity wounds, insert in one piece, leave at least 2.5cm / 1in. outside the wound for easy retrieval. Loosely pack deep wounds 85%, as the DURAFIBER dressing will expand to fill the wound dressing on contact with wound fluid.

6) Secure DURAFIBER with a moisture retentive dressing (e.g. ALLEVYN) or other appropriate secondary retention.

The dressing may adhere if used on lightly exuding wounds. If the dressing is not easily removed, moisten or soak the dressing to assist removal and avoid disruption of the healing wound.

If DURAFIBER is used on infected wounds, the infection should be treated according to local clinical protocols.

 

Frequency of Dressing Change:
During the early stages of wound management, DURAFIBER dressings should be inspected frequently. Dressings can be left undisturbed for up to 7 days or changed when clinically indicated, (e.g. if leakage, excessive bleeding is present). Local clinical protocol should also be taken into consideration.

DURAFIBER is a single use only product. If used on more than one patient, cross contamination or infection may result. Opening the dressing pack compromises the sterile barrier therefore any unused dressing should not be retained for application at a later date.

Warnings

DURAFIBER is indicated as an absorbent, gelling dressing for the management of chronic and acute, full thickness, partial thickness, or shallow granulating exuding wounds. For example: leg ulcers; pressure ulcers; diabetic ulcers; surgical wounds; wounds left to heal by secondary intent; donor sites; tunneling and fistulae wounds; partial thickness burns; traumatic wounds; and wounds that are prone to bleeding such as wounds that have been surgically or mechanically debrided. DURAFIBER is designed to be left in place for up to 7 days.

Whilst DURAFIBER assists in the management of wounds prone to bleeding, it is not intended to be used as a surgical sponge in heavily bleeding wounds.

If reddening or sensitisation occurs discontinue use.
