Cutimed Sorbact can be used for all types of contaminated, colonised or infected exuding wounds, regardless of their aetiology, such as
- chronic wounds, e.g. venous, arterial, or diabetic ulcers and pressure ulcers
- wounds after excision of fistulas and abscesses
- postoperative dehisced wounds
- traumatic wounds
Instructions for use
- Clean the wound as usual. If desired, gently press a Cutimed Sorbact round swab against the moist wound surface to remove superficial microbial contamination.
- Direct wound contact is a prerequisite for the effective binding of microorganisms. Always apply the dressings in a way that ensures direct contact with the wound surface.
- In deep or cavity wounds, apply Cutimed Sorbact swabs or ribbon gauzes and leave a part of the dressing sticking out of the wound so it can easily be removed. If required, cover with an absorbent Cutimed Sorbact dressing pad. In superficial wounds, apply a Cutimed Sorbact swab or dressing pad. Apply the dressing pad to the wound green side down.
- Depending on the amount of wound exudate, Cutimed Sorbact swabs, ribbon gauzes and round swabs can be combined with all types of hydroactive secondary dressings such as foams or alginates. Do not combine Cutimed Sorbact with ointments or creams.
- If required, use a bandage, tape or a transparent film dressing for fixation.
- When the wound is clean and shows signs of healing it is recommended to switch to other types of modern dressings (e.g. for moist wound management).
