Application

v

  1. Cleanse the wound area with an appropriate wound cleanser according to local clinical protocol.
  2. Remove Procellera® from package and if needed, cut to a shape that will extend beyond wound edges 1 to 2 cm. Caution: cutting may result in fraying of the dressing.
  3. Moisten Procellera with sterile saline, water, or a thin, even layer of water-based hydrogel (not included).
  4. Apply Procellera dressing with the dotted side down in direct contact with the wound.
  5. Cover Procellera with an appropriate secondary sterile dressing to help maintain a moist wound environment. If needed, secure in place with an additional fixation dressing, using care not to restrict blood flow. The choice of secondary dressing should be determined by the amount of wound exudate, for example:
    • For DRY wounds; waterproof, semi-permeable, or hydrogel-like dressings are recommended to ensure moisture maintenance.
    • For EXUDATING wounds; cover Procellera with layer(s) of sterile gauze or foam dressing to absorb excessive moisture and prevent maceration. Then apply a semi-permeable or hydrogel-like dressing.
  6. Keep the dressing moist by re-moistening as necessary. Avoid over-soaking, for example:
    • DRY wounds may require more frequent dressing re-moistening.
    • EXUDATING wounds may require dressing re-moistening only if exudate decreases and the dressing becomes dry.

Site Care and Dressing Change

  • Procellera may be left in place for up to 7 days (or longer, at the discretion and instruction of the treating clinician). Earlier and/or more frequent changes may be required, depending on the amount of exudate present and the condition of the wound and the surrounding skin. Inspect the wound site periodically.
  • To remove the Procellera dressing, gently pull it back. If it adheres to the wound surface, do not force it off; moisten or soak the dressing with sterile saline or water until it can be removed without tissue disruption.
  • The patient should consult a physician if any of the following occur: infection, bleeding, maceration, hypergranulation, irritation at the wound site and/or the skin surrounding, or if the wound increases in size after a few dressing changes.
