  • Do not use saline if possible 
  • Apply the dressing to the wound surface (either side down) and secure with an appropriate secondary dressing that will maintain a moist environment 
  • The dressing should be kept moist, but not so wet that tissue maceration occurs 
  • Examine the dressing to ensure a moist environment is being maintained - Change the dressing depending on the amount of exudate and the condition of the wound 
  • If the dressing dries and adheres to the wound, moisten or soak the dressing prior to removal
  • Avoid forceful removal and disruption of the healing wound

question image
At a recent wound seminar we were told that once the acticoat products are opened they lose a lot of their potency . esp after about 4 days.  Where I work we cut off what is need and reseal the packet for use over the next couple of weeks.  Any info on loss of effectiveness once exposed to the air?
