What should you do to prepare the wound before applying the dressing?

Cleanse and dry peri-wound area thoroughly before dressing application as per facility protocol.
If necessary, debride necrotic tissue before applying dressing. Hydrate wounds with low or no exudate as per facility protocol.  If necessary, treat infection as per facility protocol.

How is the dressing applied?
  • Choose the appropriate size and form dressing
  •  Peel-open the sterile pouch from the top side
  • Remove aseptically the wound dressing
  •  If using the MedCu 3-layer wound dressings (orange on both sides), apply either side directly onto the wound. Cover with a secondary dressing and secure with fixation tape or a wrap.
  •  If using the MedCu 2-layer wound dressings (with one side orange) apply the orange side of the dressing to the wound site. Cover with a secondary dressing and secure with fixation tape or a wrap.
  •  If using the MedCu wound dressings with adhesive contour, no additional fixation, tape or wrap, are needed

*The clinician should evaluate each wound and patient to determine the best fixation method for the MedCu dressings. The clinician may choose any fixation method per institutional protocols.
