Xeroform Occlusive Petrolatum Gauze may be used as an initial layer in dressing surgical wounds with light exudate where mild medication and deodorization are desired. It is intended for use as a primary contact layer in dressing wounds such as lacerations, skin graft recipient sites, newly sutured wounds, abrasions, and minor or partial-thickness burns. Xeroform Non-Adhering Gauze won't stick to the wound so dressing changes are less painful and trauma to the wound is minimized. 

Xeroform Occlusive Petrolatum Gauze Dressing Highlights

  • Collects drainage and speed up healing with the bacteriostatic/antibiotic agent
  • Stops bacteria from reproducing.
  • Maintains the moist environment for faster healing
  • Minimizes pain upon removal as it does not stick to the wound
  • Can be cut to required size.
  • Sterile, non-adhering primary dressing
  • 3% Xeroform (Bismuth Tribromophenate) and Petrolatum in a blend, on a fine mesh gauze.

What to buy with Covidien Xeroform Gauze Dressing?


How to use Xeroform Gauze Dressing?

  • It is recommended to change dressing on a daily basis to maintain a moist, non-adherent environment.
  • Cleanse wound with saline solution or sterile water.
  • Gently pat dry surrounding skin.
  • Place dressing directly over wound or into the wound.
  • The dressing will cling and conform to the body.
  • Choose a secondary dressing to cover the dressing such as a transparent film, tape or roll gauze to secure.
  • Xeroform is a type of petroleum-based gauze used to keep the wound moist and protect the tissue while promoting healing.
  • To make a dressing, get your supplies ready - double antibiotic ointment, xeroform gauze, and tape
  • Ensure that you wash your hands prior to and after doing the dressing.
  • First apply antibiotic ointment to your wound.
  • Next cut appropriate length strips of Xeroform and place them over the burned areas.
  •  When you apply the dressing try to limit application on healthy skin. Allow some overlap, about 1 inch, onto healthy skin expecting that you're dressing will shift as you move about.
  • To protect your dressing, wrap with the role of dry gauze.
  • When wrapping arms or legs always start from the outermost end and wrap upward toward the body.
  • For example, start at the toes and wrap upward toward the knee, or start at the fingers and work toward the shoulder.
  • Secure with tape.
  • If needed, you can further secure your dressing with snug fitting clothing.
  • If you're dressing shifts and areas of your burn become exposed during the day, reinforce the dressing and reapply ointment if needed.
  • Do not allow your healing burn to dry out.

Contraindications:

  • Irritation may develop with a history of atopy (predisposition to hypersensitivity) or if sensitivity to Bismuth Tribromophenate exists.

There are very few reported side effects from the use of petrolatum gauze dressings. In rare cases, skin irritation may occur. The petrolatum in this dressing can be an eye irritant. No other side effects from the use of this type of dressing have been reported.
