DuoDERM® CGF® dressing
DuoDERM® CGF® dressing is an adherent dressing indicated for the management of exuding wounds.
- It is beneficial for patient health that trained healthcare professionals use DuoDERM® CGF® dressings at the right point in time during the healing of a wound.
- It promotes granulation and facilitates autolytic debridement.
- Autolytic debridement removes necrotic tissue as quickly as enzymatic debridement.
Evidence-based action plans for hydrating dry wounds include creation of a moist wound environment to prevent wound drying and to allow autolytic debridement to occur.
EASE OF USE
- DuoDERM® dressings can be worn for up to seven days.
- The dressings are highly conformable - and can be easily and gently moulded into place
