Covalon ColActive Plus Collagen Matrix Dressing

Covalon ColActive Plus Collagen Matrix Dressing

  • FSA Approved
  • Latex Free

Covalon ColActive Plus Collagen Matrix Dressing is a topically applied wound dressing that will transform into a soft gel sheet when in contact with wound exudates. The dressing maintains a moist wound environment that aids in the formation of granulation tissue and epithelialization. The EDTA in the dressing removes zinc to inhibit the activity of matrix metalloproteinases (MMP), thus creating a suitable environment for wound healing.

More Information

  • When Not To Use:
    - ColActive Plus dressing should not be used on patients with a known allergy or sensitivity to animal derived collagen, any other ingredient or on third degree burns. 
  • How To Apply: 
    - Debride and irrigate the wound bed with an appropriate wound cleanser or distilled water before application.
    - Cut the dressing to fit the exact wound size. For heavily exudating wounds, apply the dressing directly to the wound bed. For dry wounds with very little exudate, moisten the wound bed with distilled water to begin the gelling process.
    - Cover the ColActive Plus with an appropriate secondary dressing.
    - Change dressings daily or as good nursing practice dictates. 
  • Care And Removal: 
    - Remove the secondary dressing with care. Gently remove ColActive Plus ensuring that the dressing removal does not damage any newly formed tissues.
    - Use an appropriate wound cleanser or distilled water to cleanse the wound site prior to applying a new ColActive Plus dressing as per application instructions
