- Always consult a qualified medical professional prior to beginning any wound treatment
- Always read the Instructions For Use (IFU) and understand when and when not to apply the dressings
- Whenever applicable, use Cutimed Sorbion Sachet dressings as a primary dressing (not secondary)
- Wash hands and wear sterile gloves prior to handling the wound site
- Remove the current dressing if present
- Clean the wound as directed by a medical professional with a sterile saline solution or other standard wound cleansing products and/or procedures.
- Remove soiled gloves, wash hands and put on a pair of clean gloves
- Select a suitable size BSN Sorbion Sachet Extra dressing – Note: Always provide a dressing overlap with the wound of 1.5 cm to protect the peri-wound skin from protease enzymes & do not use greasy skin barrier creams under the dressing as dressing absorbency will be compromised
- Ensure the dressing makes direct contact with the wound bed and that ‘dead space’ is eliminated
- Cover the dressing by applying a secondary dressing appropriate for the wound condition – do not use restrictive circumferential tape to maintain the dressing in place, as this may cause discomfort or ischaemic damage as the dressing swells
- The dressing should be examined for saturation regularly, particularly during the early phases of treatment
- The dressing should be removed before becoming completely saturated with fluid and before fluid penetrates the back of the dressing
- The dressing should be changed in a timely and regular manner in accordance with proper medical practice – the dressing should not be left on the wound longer than four days
- Document the date and time of each dressing change
