Abena’s Hydrocolloid Dressings act as a barrier to the wound against bacterial, viral, and other external contamination, which helps minimize potential exposure to nosocomial or infectious agents. The dressing features a protective waterproof film, an adhesive layer, and easy removal tabs. The waterproof film provides thermal insulation and helps lower the risk of infection by preventing bacteria from going inside. The adhesive layer features polymers which enhance the dressing’s ability to contain wound exudate by forming a cohesive gel. When saturated with exudate, the level of adhesion to the wound is reduced, allowing for easy removal.

Carefully clean the wound and its surrounding area with sterile water or saline solution and dry the surrounding skin gently.
Select the right size of dressing for the wound area. Carefully open the sterile pouch to remove the dressing inside.
While avoiding contact with the adhesive area, carefully pry open the two protective plastic films from the pad side of the dressing.
Center the dressing over the wound, all the while avoiding contact with the sterile adhesive area, then gently smooth into place.
