DuoDERM CGF Dressing is an adhesive (hydrocolloid) wound contact dressing. The hydrocolloids are contained within the dressing mass. The adhesive layer contains polymers which enhance the dressing’s ability to contain wound exudate by forming a cohesive gel.
The self adherent dressing absorbs wound fluid and provides a moist environment which supports the body’s healing process and aids in the removal of unnecessary material from the wound (autolytic debridement) without damaging new tissue.
DuoDERM CGF Dressing acts as a barrier to the wound against bacterial, viral and other external contamination. The dressing has been shown in laboratory experiments to block the passage of bacteria and viruses to include the HIV-1 while the dressing remains intact without leakage.
May be used for:
- leg ulcers, diabetic ulcers and pressure ulcers
- surgical wounds
- traumatic wounds
under the supervision of a healthcare professional.
