Smith & Nephew Durafiber IFU Soft Non-Woven Pad or Ribbon Dressings

Brand/Manufacturer: SMITH & NEPHEW
  • FSA Approved

Smith & Nephew Durafiber IFU Soft Non-Woven Pad or Ribbon Dressings is composed of cellulose ethyl sulphonate fibres. This highly absorbent and conformable dressing is designed to rapidly form a clear, cool gel on contact with wound fluid. Gel absorbs excess fluid, locks exudate away from the wound, provides a moist environment to support autolytic debridement and conforms intimately to the wound bed.

More Information

  • Precautions:
    Whilst Durafiber assists in the management of wounds prone to bleeding, it is not intended to be used as a surgical sponge in heavily bleeding wounds
    - If reddening or sensitization occurs discontinue use
  • Instructions for Use:
    Cleanse the wound according to local clinical protocol
    - Select the appropriate dressing size
    - Remove the Durafiber dressing from pack, using a clean technique. Cut to shape if necessary
    - Apply the dressing to the wound and allow for a 1cm (1/3in.) dressing overlap onto the skin surrounding the wound
    - When using Durafiber ribbon in deep cavity wounds, insert in one piece, leave at least 2.5cm (1in.) outside the wound for easy retrieval. Loosely pack deep wounds 85%, as the Durafiber dressing will expand to fill the wound dressing on contact with wound fluid
    - Secure Durafiber with a moisture retentive dressing (e.g. Allevyn) or other appropriate secondary retention
    - The dressing may adhere if used on lightly exuding wounds. If the dressing is not easily removed, moisten or soak the dressing to assist removal and avoid disruption of the healing wound
    - If Durafiber is used on infected wounds, the infection should be treated according to local clinical protocols
  • Frequency of dressing change:
    During the early stages of wound management, Durafiber dressings should be inspected frequently. Dressings can be left undisturbed for up to 7 days or changed when clinically indicated, (e.g. if leakage, excessive bleeding is present). Local clinical protocol should also be taken into consideration
    - Durafiber is a single use only product. If used on more than one patient, cross contamination or infection may result. Opening the dressing pack compromises the sterile barrier, therefore any unused dressing should not be retained for application at a later date
  • Dressing removal:
    The dressing can be removed in one piece using sterile tweezers, forceps or a gloved hand. Ensure all dressings are removed
