What Are The Directions To Use DuoDERM Signal Dressing?

  • Directions for use:
    - Wound Site Preparation and Cleansing Before using the dressing, clean the wound with an appropriate wound cleansing agent or normal saline and dry the surrounding skin
    - Dressing Preparation and Application
    - Choose a dressing size and shape to ensure that the dressing is 1-1/4" (3cm) larger than the wound area in any one direction
    - Remove the release paper from the back being careful to minimize finger contact with the adhesive surface
    - Hold the dressing over the wound and line up the center of the dressing with the center of the wound
    - Place the dressing directly over the wound
    - For difficult to dress anatomical locations, such as heels or the sacrum, a supplementary securing device, such as tape, may be required
    - Discard any unused portion of the product after dressing the wound
    - Dressing Change and Removal
    The dressing should be inspected frequently for leakage, rolling up of the edges and/or whether any part of the bubble has reached the change indicator
    - If any of these occur, the dressing should be changed
    - As wound fluid is absorbed by the dressing, gel formation may be visible through the dressing
    - The dressing should be changed when: clinically indicated, when strikethrough occurs, or up to a maximum of seven days
    - The wound should be cleansed at appropriate intervals
    - Press down gently on the skin and carefully lift one corner of the dressing until it is no longer adhered to the skin
    - Continue until all edges are free
    - Carefully lift away the dressing

    - During the body normal healing process, non-viable tissue (autolytic debridement) 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 healthcare professional
    - Should you observe irritation (reddening, inflammation), maceration (whitening of skin), hypergranulation (excess tissue formation) or sensitivity (allergic reaction) consult a healthcare 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

  • What Are The Benefits of DuoDERM Signal Dressing?

    • Optimized Dressing Use
            - Dressings have a visual indicator which indicates when a dressing needs changing, reducing premature dressing changes.
            - A thin, smooth, low-friction backing is designed to reduce shearing that can prematurely dislodge the dressing.
    • 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.
            - It is easy to apply and can be removed without damaging newly formed tissue.
            - It helps to reduce bunching and the effect of shear through tapered edges and a smooth surface.
            - It helps to prevent damage to the wound bed on removal through a unique gelling action, ensuring maximum comfort.
    • Ease of Application
            - The translucent backing enhances dressing placement and initial monitoring of the wound
            - The tapered edge contours to difficult areas
            - Areas subject to friction force, including the heels, buttocks, sacrum, elbows, and trochanters, are likely to develop wounds (or breakdown around wounds). DuoDERM Signal comes in various shapes designed to be placed in these difficult to dress areas.
    • Hints and Tips for Difficult to Dress Areas
            - Remove the dressing from the protective sleeve.
            - Peel back the main white release paper and the two small margin tabs and apply the dressing wings to the back of the heel.
            - Remove the two large tabs and apply the remaining lower part of dressing to the heel.
            - Ensure good contact with the skin by gently smoothing over kinks or folds with warm hands.
            - Please see the package inserts for full product information, including instructions for its use.
