Smith & Nephew CONFORMANT 2 Dressing


Smith & Nephew 545955044 CONFORMANT 2 Dressing, 4" X 4", 48 Sheets/Case
Our Price: $98.80

Description
  • Sterile, air permeable, flexible, transparent, polyethylene wound contact layer designed to act as a non-adherent interface between the wound and the secondary dressing
  • Saves nursing time
  • Can be used over most wound sites under an absorbent outer dressing
  • Because CONFORMANT 2 is made entirely from high-density polyethylene, it tears easily and uniformly in the direction of the grain for dressing customization.
  • Compatible with most topical agents, liquids and creams
  • Covers the wound and allows removal with less disturbance to granulation tissue
  • Transparency allows easy monitoring of a wound or graft
  • Indicated to provide covering for the wound bed
  • For OTC applications, CONFORMANT 2 may be used for the management of minor wounds including: abrasions, skin tears, minor burns and scalds.
  • Under the care of a healthcare professional, CONFORMANT 2 may be used in the management of partial and full thickness wounds including: leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, second degree burns, surgical wounds, diabetic foot ulcers.
  • Precautions
    • During the body's normal healing process, unnecessary material is removed from the wound which will make the wound appear larger after the first few dressing changes.  If the wound continues to get larger after the first few dressing changes, consult an appropriate healthcare professional.
    • Should any signs of irritation (redness, swelling, increased burning sensation), maceration (over-hydration of the skin), hyper-granulation (excess tissue) or sensitivity (allergic reactions) appear, discontinue use and consult an appropriate healthcare professional.
    • This product is not recommended for use on sensitve areas, such as around the face and eyes, unless under the advice of an appropriate healthcare professional.
    • Not for 3rd degree burns
  • The following treatments are designed to act as general guidelines and should only be done under the direct supervision of an appropriate healthcare professional
    • For Burns
      • 1. Cleanse the wound using sterile saline or other appropriate wound cleanser.
      • 2. CONFORMANT 2 may be coated with topical ointment, cut to size and then wrapped around a burn before applying the secondary dressing.  CONFORMANT 2 is non-absorbent and the ointment will stay on the burn site longer.
      • 3. If repeat cleansing is necessary, this may be done through the CONFORMANT 2 dressing.
    • For Shallow Chronic Wounds (Stage II Ulcers)
      • 1. Cleanse the wound using sterile saline or other appropriate wound cleanser.
      • 2. Apply CONFORMANT 2 directly to the wound site so that the edges extend beyond the wound edge.
      • 3. Apply the secondary dressing.
      • 4. If repeat cleansing is necessary, this may be done through the CONFORMANT 2 dressing.
    • For Deep Cavity Wounds (Stage III or IV)
