Replicare Ultra Dressing - 4" x 4" - Box of 5

REPLICARE Thin is a hydrocolloid dressing

REPLICARE Thin is made from a polyurethane film with a thin layer of absorbent colloid.

Benefits



Moist wound environment

REPLICARE Thin maintains a moist wound environment that assists in promoting autolytic debridement while managing low levels of exudate.

Goes on easy, comes off clean

The sterile, no-touch, self-adhering application system makes REPLICARE Thin simple to apply – even while wearing gloves. High cohesive properties keep the dressing from falling apart and leaving residue in the wound, so there’s minimal risk of local irritation.

Superior conformability

Like original REPLICARE, REPLICARE Thin stretches easily and returns to its original shape more completely than other hydrocolloid dressings – even over joints. This suppleness and flexibility allows the dressings to give without migrating, minimizing granulation tissue injury and damage to periwound skin integrity.

Improves patient comfort

REPLICARE Thin permits increased ease of patient mobility without uncomfortable pulling of the skin, especially over joints. The dressing’s thin profile also makes it cosmetically acceptable to patients.

Cost-effective choice

REPLICARE Thin promotes more cost-effective use of material and resources and nursing services. The dressing is totally transparent, so there is no need to disturb the dressing to check for saturation or healing progress. The waterproof polyurethane film cover material allows the dressing to be easily cleaned and permits patients to bathe or shower without the need for a dressing change. The dressing also aids in the prevention of bacterial contamination. The no-touch application system results in fewer wasted dressings, and the combination of conformability, adhesion and absorption extends wear time and reduces the risk of wound contamination.


Indications


  • REPLICARE Thin is indicated for exudate absorption and the management of partial to full thickness wounds. Some typical wounds are:
  • Ulcers (venous, arterial, diabetic)
  • Pressure Sores
  • Donor Sites
  • Surgical Incisions
  • Surgical Excisions
  • Burns (1st and 2nd degree)
  • Creation and maintenance of a moist wound environment. Moist wound environments have been established as optimal environments for the management of the wound.
  • Provides physical separation between the wound and external environments to assist in preventing bacterial contamination of the wound.
Precautions

OPSITEâ—Š FLEXIGRIDâ—Š may be used on clinically infected wounds if the following precautions are followed:

* The patient should be under medical/clinical supervision
* The dressing should be changed daily
* The patient should be receiving suitable systemic treatment.

Immuno-compromised patients and diabetic patients may require extra supervision. Care should be taken to avoid skin damage by repeated applications on patients with thin or fragile skin.

In common with all adhesive products, some cases of irritation and/or maceration of the skin surrounding the wound have been reported. It should be noted that inappropriate use or too frequent dressing changes, particularly in patients with fragile skin, can result in skin stripping.
