Duoderm CGF Extra Thin Skin Dressings are used as a primary hydrocolloid dressing for dry and lightly exuding wounds. It can also be used as a secondary dressing, and used for the management of stage 1 and stage 2 pressure ulcers.
Wash your hands before use, also clean and rinse the wound and then dry the surrounding skin. Then select the appropriate dressing size so that the bandage overlaps onto the skin over the wound. Then warm the dressing between your hands. Remove the top white release paper, and make sure to be extra cautious as to not make any contact with the adhesive. Gently apply the center part of the adhesive, than remove the bottom white release paper while rolling the dressing place. Be careful not to stretch it.
Gently mold the adhesive in place for about 30 to 60 seconds. Then gently lift the corner of the dressing and roll it away from the wound, do this with each corner until the dressing completely peels off.
