Description

Designed to reduce the risk of further skin breakdown due to friction.

DuoDERM® Extra Thin Dressing can be used as a primary hydrocolloid dressing for dry to lightly exuding wounds.

It can be used as a secondary dressing to secure an AQUACEL® Dressing or an AQUACEL® Ag Dressing.

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.1

DuoDERM® Extra Thin Dressing can be used to manage stage I and stage II pressure ulcers.

PROTECTION

  • A thin polyurethane film provides a bacterial and viral barrier when the dressing remains intact and without leakage.
  • The film provides a waterproof barrier over the dressing.
  • The dressing can be removed without damaging newly formed tissue.
  • It is designed to reduce the risk of further skin breakdown due to friction by preventing contact with clothes/bed linen.
  • It can be used on the body as a primary or secondary dressing.
  • It can be used on skin tears and superficial wounds, dry to lightly exuding wounds, newly-formed tissue or skin at risk of further breakdown.

EASE OF APPLICATION

  • The translucent backing enhances dressing placement and initial monitoring of the wound.
  • The dressings are easy to use, mold and can be cut to shape to dress awkward areas.
  • Wash your hands, cleanse and rinse the wound and then dry the surrounding skin.
  • Measure the wound to select the appropriate dressing size, allowing a 3.0cm (1¼ -inch) overlap on intact skin around the whole wound.
  • Warm the dressing between your hands.
  • Remove the top white release paper, being careful to minimize finger contact with the adhesive surface.
  • Hold the adhesive side of the dressing over the wound.
  • Align the dressing with the center of the wound.
  • Gently apply the center part of the dressing.
  • Remove the bottom white release paper while rolling the dressing in place – but don’t stretch it.
  • Repeat the above procedure on the other side and remove the clear release paper.
  • Gently mold the dressing into place for 30-60 seconds.
  • Gently lift one corner of the dressing.
  • Roll it away from the wound while holding the skin away.
  • Gently lift the other corners and pull upwards until the dressing completely peels off.
  • The use of DuoDERM® Extra Thin neither guarantees nor warranties against HIV transmission.
