Select an appropriate size dressing. Prepare and clean the skin around the wound. SKIN-PREP Protective Wipes may be used to protect fragile skin. Peel back the protector papers and anchor the dressing over the wound. Smooth the dressing into place, ensuring that the edges of the dressing are not wrinkled.
During the early stages of treatment, ALLEVYN Ag Adhesive dressings should be inspected frequently; dressings can be left in place until exudate can be seen through the outer waterproof film layer and approaches 3/4" from the edge of the dressing.
To remove, lift one corner of the dressing and lift it gently away from the wound.
