Specifications

Product Components
NU-DERM™ Hydrocolloid Wound Dressings consist of a wound contact layer of hydrocolloids.
The top layer is either a semi-permeable polyurethane film
(BORDER and THIN), or a film-coated polyurethane foam (STANDARD).

Product description/mode of action and clinical benefits
NU-DERM™ Hydrocolloid Wound Dressings are sterile hydrocolloid wound dressings designed to maintain a moist wound environment.
A moist wound environment supports the wound healing process by encouraging autolytic debridement, thus enabling granulation to
proceed under optimum conditions. The dressing material interacts with wound exudate to form a soft gel. Due to the matrix formulation
of thehydrocolloid material, most of the gel is removed together with the dressing, resulting in little or no damage to the newly formed tissue.
The BORDER product is conformable, has a top layer of low-friction film, and has bevelled edges all around the product. The border itself is a
continuation of the skin friendly hydrocolloid adhesive material.
 
The STANDARD product has a top layer of foam and rounded corners.

The semi-transparent THIN product, which is conformable and has a top layer of low-friction film, allows close and easy monitoring of the
wound bed without dressing removal.

The dressings are waterproof and remain in place during showering. They protect the wound against bacterial contamination.

4. Remove the paper release liner completely and secure the adhesive to skin.
5. Remove the clear film release liner from the other side of the dressing and secure the adhesive to skin.
6. Ensure all edges are smooth and firmly secured.
 
Difficult to dress wounds
Difficult to dress wounds, like the heel/elbow and sacral areas need special attention.
Use the dressings specifically designed for those locations.
 
Heel /Elbow
1. Remove both parts of the protective liner system.
2. Place the dressing on the heel or elbow, leaving the pre-cut “flaps” detached.
3. Affix the side flaps to wrap the heel or elbow.
4. Affix the center flap.
The dressing can be applied either with the straight edge at the top or bottom
depending on the location of the wound.

Sacral
1. Remove the white release liner from the back of the dressing.
2. Grasp the two clear release films with arrows at each edge of the dressing.
3. Place exposed adhesive portion by first placing the “hinge” into the area between the buttocks.
4. Remove the clear release films and secure the two edges to the skin.
5. Ensure all edges are smooth and firmly secured.

Removal technique/dressing frequency
Change the dressing after a maximum of 7 days or when full absorbency has been reached.

management to avoid trauma to the intact skin.

1. Press down gently on the skin and carefully lift the dressing starting at one edge.
2. Pull towards the centre of the wound until the dressing is removed.
3. Irrigate/clean the wound if necessary.
