365 Super Absorbent Dressing is a non-adhesive, multi-layer super-absorbent dressing for use on moderate to highly exuding wounds. It is designed for use as a primary dressing to absorb wound exudate and provide an optimal wound healing environment, even under compression. The dressing combines a low adherent wound contact layer, a multi-layer absorbent core and a breathable blue protective backing.

Dressing Features

• Highly absorbent core layer provides large capacity with rapid fluid uptake.
• Core layer transforms into a gel when in contact with exudate to securely lock away fluid.
• The water resistant barrier backing layer prevents strike-through and has a high moisture vapour transfer rate to encourage wound healing and prolong dressing wear time.
• The soft, low adherent wound contact layer reduces the risk of skin trauma and stripping during dressing changes.

Indications for Use

365 Super Absorbent is designed for a wide range of exuding wounds including:
• Chronic and acute wounds with moderate to high levels of exudate;
– Pressure ulcers.
– Diabetic foot ulcers
– Leg ulcers.
– Post-operative wounds.
– Superficial and partial thickness burns.
• Shallow, granulating wounds.

Precautions

• 365 Super Absorbent Dressing is not a haemostat and should not be used on bleeding wounds or arterial bleeds.
• Do not cut the dressing.
• Do not use 365 Super Absorbent Dressings in cavities, as the dressing will swell as it absorbs fluid.
• Do not use 365 Super Absorbent Dressings on dry wounds.
• Do not use the dressing if the peel pouch is opened or damaged.
• If the condition of the wound deteriorates, discontinue use and consult your healthcare professional.

Instructions for Use

1. Cleanse the wound in accordance with local clinical protocols
2. Select a dressing large enough to provide a 3 cm margin of contact to dry healthy peri-wound skin
3. Remove 365 Super Absorbent dressing from the packaging using a clean technique
4. Apply the white side of the dressing to the wound  and ‘Blue side to the sky’ and secure with a secondary dressing,tape or bandage.
5. Use a retention bandage to keep 365 Super Absorbent dressing in position on the wound
6. For large wounds several dressings can be placed side-by-side and secured with an appropriate tape or bandage

Frequency of Dressing Change

• The use of super absorbent dressings should always be re-evaluated if wound exudate levels change
• During the early stages of wound management, observe the wound daily for signs of infection or other complications (or as recommended by local clinical protocols).
• The frequency of dressing change is determined by the condition of the wound and local clinical protocols
• Dressings can be left in place for up to 7 days, or until the dressing becomes saturated with exudate, whichever is sooner

Dressing Removal

1. Careful and correct dressing removal is vital to minimise the risk of damaging the wound bed and new granulating tissue.
2. Remove the retention dressing or bandage and carefully lift the dressing away from the wound.
3. The dressing should be removed slowly and carefully to avoid pain and discomfort for the patient and damage to the healing wound
4. As the dressing is removed, the newly expose skin should be supported.
5. Follow existing local clinical protocols to clean the wound in order to remove any remaining exudate before wound assessment or the application of any new dressings.
