DRYNET

Wound Veil

Overview

Description

DRYNET Wound Veil is a cost effective alternative to commercial bridal veil.


Benefits

DRYNET's pre-cut sterile sizes save valuable nursing time and money by eliminating the steps needed to prepare commercial bridal veil. Supports the graft and helps reduce shearing with an anti-shear layer, while allowing wound drainage. Nylon mesh construction can be stretched tightly over the wound site to act as an anchor or stant.


Indications

DRYNET Wound Veil dressings are indicated as a covering for the wound bed. Under the care of a healthcare professional, DRYNET Wound Veil may be used in the management of partial and full thickness wounds including

  • Leg ulcers
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Second degree burns
  • Surgical wounds
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Use as a post-surgical covering over epithelial autograft sites to support the graft and help in the prevention of sheering of the graft while permitting the graft site to drain.


Precautions

  • During the body's normal healing process, unnecessary material is removed from the wound which will make the wound appear larger after the first few dressing changes. If the wound continues to get larger after the first few dressing changes, consult an appropriate healthcare professional.
  • Should any signs of irritation (redness, swelling, increased burning sensation), maceration (over-hydration of the skin), hyper-granulation (excess tissue) or sensitivity (allergic reactions) appear, discontinue use and consult an appropriate healthcare professional.
  • This product is not recommended for use on sensitve areas, such as around the face and eyes, unless under the advice of an appropriate healthcare professional.
  • Not for 3rd degree burns.
