How to Use

Cleanse the  wound according to local clinical protocal.

Step 1
Using a full absorbency EXU-DRY dressing, select a size slightly larger than the wound.

Step 2
Place onto wound. The back side of the dressings is marked “Use other side against wound.”

Step 3
EXU-DRY dressings may be used as a wet, dry or secondary dressing:

Dry: a variety of topical agents may be applied directly on the wound or buttered on to the dressing.

Wet: submerge in liquid topical agent and gently squeeze out (do not ring out) excess fluid.

Secondary dressing: may be used in combination with other products (calcium alginates, gels, foams, etc.) that have been used to pack a wound.

Step 4
Good wound contact is essential.  Secure in place.

Frequency of change
We recommend daily dressing changes per your institutions protocols.

Dressing removal
To remove the EXU-DRY dressing, remove the retention dressing or bandage and lift the EXU-DRY dressing from the wound.

Please Note
On grafts and donor sites, the dressing may be cut around to leave wound contact layer in place. As the wound epithelializes, the wound contact layer will lift and peel away.
