Hydrofera Blue Classic Antibacterial Foam Dressing

Brand/Manufacturer: APPULSE MEDICAL
  • FSA Approved

Hydrofera Blue Classic Antibacterial Foam Dressing provides a protective antibacterial cover that inhibits the growth of microorganisms. It is made by binding two organic pigments methylene blue and gentian violet in open-celled polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) that work to help bind bacteria and harmful endotoxins to the dressings. The micro pore structure of PVA foam rapidly wicks excess moisture away from wound. Successful wound management requires management of bioburden, maintaining moisture balance and removal of devitalized tissue. Hydrofera Blue Classic dressings can help all of these in a single dressing

Hydrofera Blue Classic Antibacterial Dressing Highlights:

  • Broad-spectrum antibacterial protection
  • Rapid wicking and exudate retention
  • Autolytic debridement
  • Edge effect

When to Use Hydrofera blue antibacterial Dressing?

Hydrofera Blue Classic Dressing Application Guide

How to Apply Hydrofera Blue Dressing?


Hydrate with sterile saline or sterile water and Squeeze out excess fluid


Dressing may be cut to fit the wound bed. If rolled edges are present, the dressing should cover both the wound and periwound area


Secondary dressing selection is based on exudate level


Change the first dressing at 24 hours. If the dressing retained its blue color where it had been in contact with the wound, the new dressing can be left in place for up to 72 hours. If the dressing turned white or lightened in color, continue 24-hour dressing changes until blue color is retained


As with many wound care dressings, moisture balance is key. If the dressing is dry, thoroughly remoisten with sterile saline or water, then gently remove the dressing.

Select the appropriate dressing size to ensure the Hydrofera Blue dressing will cover the entire wound. Apply with the foam side towards the wound, and the shiny side with the thin film up.
