Granuflex Dressings

Hydrocolloid dressing is a type of dressing which is made under the brand name of Grabuflex Dressing. This dressing consists of gel-forming agents in the form of a paste laminated with water-resistant outer layer. Hydrocolloid dressing helps to heal wounds of areas like sacrum, elbows and heels by providing a moist healing environment, autolytic debridement and insulation.

The dressing can be used for clean, superficial wounds with low to medium exudate. Having a softening effect on dry wounds, the hydrocolloids provide effective occlusion.

How should you apply hydrocolloid dressing?

Put on gloves after washing your hand and remove the soiled dressing. Clean the wound with a prescribed cleanser or saline solution.

Now rub liquid barrier film to the wounded area and in case of deep wounds apply wound filler as specified.

Remove the paper at the back of the dressing and apply it gently from the center of the wound outward by folding it in half lengthwise.

Hold the dressing in place for some time to improve adhesion.

Make sure that the dressing is at least 1 inch larger than the wound and you can even put tape around the edges to protect the dressing.

It is a good idea to take a note of the date on which you are applying the Granuflex Wound Dressing so that you know when the dressing has to be changed.

How should you remove hydrocolloid dressing?

Lift an edge of the dressing carefully by pressing down on the skin and keep on lifting around the dressing until all the edges are set free.

Peel away the dressing from the skin in the direction of the hair growth.
