Ulcers (venous, arterial, diabetic)
Burns (1st and 2nd degree)
Creation and maintenance of a moist wound environment. Moist wound environments have been established as optimal environments for the management of the wound.
Provides physical separation between the wound and external environments to assist in preventing bacterial contamination of the wound.
FLEXIGEL ™ is not indicated for the management of third degree burns.
Instructions for Use:
Apply a skin preparation to the periwound skin
Apply FLEXIGEL ™ Sheet dressing (cut to fit wound, if necessary)
Requires secondary dressing. May use roll gauze or OPSITE ™ film.
