INDICATIONS: VetriGel® Wound Dressing is indicated for the management of wounds. The product provides moisture to the wound, physical protection and a barrier against microbial infection.
HOW SUPPLIED: VetriGel is a sterile Single use kit containing
- Syringe with oxidized dextran solution
- Syringe with cross linking agent and excipients
- Luer Lock Connector
PRECAUTIONS: If there are obvious package defects do not use the product, as sterility may be compromised. The product is supplied in a single-use kit. Once mixed, the product must be used or discarded. Thorough debridement of wounds is required prior to application of VetriGel.
DIRCTIONS FOR USE: Clean the wound. Avoid use of oil based cleansers. Connecting the syringes and making repeated reciprocations achieves mixing prior to application. As soon as the polymer solution contacts the powder in the second syringe the reaction begins, so it is important to mix and use promptly. During the first 60 seconds mixture will be in liquid form, after 90 seconds in gel form. Working time is about 2 minutes.
1.Peel open the product kit pouch.
2.Remove the protective caps from syringes.
3.Use the connector provided to couple the syringe which contains polymer solution with the syringe which contains excipients.
4.Perform 20 full reciprocation cycles.
5.Ensure that all the mixed materials are in one syringe. Detach the empty syringe and the connector.
6.Extrude directly onto the intended application site.
7.After application use a secondary dressing to secure the VetriGel.
Wounds and conditions vary. Inspect the wound periodically and change the dressing as required.
