Recommendations:

 

Wound Preparation

Before applying the RTD™ Wound Dressing, clean the wound with an appropriate cleaning agent in accordance with woundcare guidelines. 

Standard precautions should be used to prevent the spread of infectious agents when dressing wounds.

Securing RTDWound Dressing In Place

Use gauze, Kerlix™, Omnifix™, Mefix™, or other non-occlusive adhesives or medical grade tape.

Guidance

For best results, the RTD Wound Dressing should be in direct contact with the wound bed and fit to the edges of the wound.

For moderate to heavy exuding wounds the 6.35mm thickness is recommended.

For light exuding and/or superficial wounds, the 3.18mm thickness is recommended.

Leave the RTD Wound Dressing in place for three days or remove if saturated.

If the dressing becomes saturated before the desired dressing change, a second dressing may be placed on top for continued absorption. 

If RTD™ is difficult to remove, soak with saline or sterile water.

A non-adherent layer is recommended to prevent sticking or in-growth at the later stages of wound healing.

For use at home, the RTD™ Wound Dressing should only be used under the direct supervision of a wound care professional.
