Benefits : • Allows non-traumatic removal of secondary dressing without damaging new tissue • Filler for dry cavity wounds to provide a moist wound healing environment • Can be used to fill uneven or hard to reach areas • Clear and preservative-free • Aids autolytic debridement • Latex-free Indications : DuoDERM® Hydroactive Paste is designed for the hydration and management of partial- and full-thickness wounds such as pressure ulcers, leg ulcers, and diabetic ulcers. Recommended Use : - Diabetic Ulcers - Non/Minimally Exudating Wounds - Pressure Ulcers Mode of Use / Application : - Cleanse the wound site, rinse well and dry the surrounding skin. Unscrew the tube cap and remove the white safety ring. Replace the cap to puncture the tube membrane. Apply DuoDERM® Hydroactive Gel directly into the wound.

Maximum recommended wear time is seven days. Contraindications : - Do not use on individuals with a known sensitivity to the gel or its components. Warnings and Precautions : Colonization of chronic wounds is common and is not a contraindication to the use of DuoDERM® Hydroactive Gel. Where infection is suspected or develops during the use of DuoDERM® Hydroactive Gel, appropriate antibiotic therapy should be initiated. The use of DuoDERM® Hydroactive Gel may be continued, but the progress of the wound should be monitored carefully and all treatments should be under medical supervision. In the presence of anaerobic infection, occlusive therapy is not recommended. The control of blood glucose as well as appropriate pressure relief measures should be provided with diabetic foot ulcers. The moist wound environment produced by the gel may result in autolytic debridement which may make the wound appear larger after the first few dressing changes.
