Its unique combination of natural biopolymers combines the structural support of collagen and the gel-forming properties of alginates.
The result: a sterile, soft, absorbent and conformable topical wound dressing.

In the presence of wound fluid, FIBRACOL™ Plus Dressing maintains a physiologically moist microenvironment at the wound surface. This environment supports  granulation tissue formation, epithelialization and rapid wound healing.
 
The unique combination of collagen and alginate is designed to address a wide range of indicated wound types and exudate levels.

Specifications

Product description
FIBRACOL™ Plus Collagen Wound Dressing with Alginate is an advanced wound care device composed of collagen and calcium alginate fibers. Its unique combination of natural biopolymers created by a patented process combines the structural support of collagen and the gel forming properties of alginates into a sterile, soft, absorbent, conformable topical wound dressing. In the presence of wound fluid FIBRACOL™ Plus Dressing maintains a physiologically moist microenvironment at the wound surface that is conducive to granulation tissue formation, epithelialization, and enables healing to proceed at a rapid rate. FIBRACOL™ Plus Dressing is versatile as a primary wound dressing, it can be cut to the exact size of the wound, multi-layered for the management of deep wounds and used in combination with either a semi-occlusive or non-occlusive secondary dressing.

Applications

Directions for Use
  • Debride when necessary and irrigate the wound site with normal saline solution.
  • Remove excess solution from surrounding skin.
  • For heavily exuding wounds, apply to wound bed directly. For wounds with minimal exudate, apply to moistened wound bed; this will initiate the gel forming process.
  • Pack deep wounds loosely. The dressing can be cut to size with sterile scissors. The amount of FIBRACOL™ Plus Dressing to be used depends on the size of the wound and the amount of exudate.
  • FIBRACOL™ Plus Dressing may be covered with either a non-occlusive secondary dressing and xed to the skin with a non-irritating tape or a semi-occlusive dressing (e.g TIELLE™ Hydropolymer Adhesive Dressing or TIELLE™ Plus Hydropolymer Adhesive Dressing).
  • Reapply FIBRACOL™ Plus Dressing when the secondary dressing has reached its absorbent capacity or whenever good wound care practice dictates that the dressing should be changed. A heavily exuding wound may require daily or twice daily dressing changes. More moderately exuding wounds will require less frequent changes (every 2 to 4 days or as directed by a healthcare professional). Following the initial application, irrigate the wound with saline solution. Reapply FIBRACOL™ Plus Dressing as previously instructed.
 
Dressing Removal
After gently removing the secondary dressing, lift any FIBRACOL™ Plus Dressing that has not formed a gel and discard. Using normal saline, gently irrigate the wound to remove any residual gel.
 
Do not re-use.
Do not resterilize.
