Description

Acticoat Flex 3 are effective antimicrobial barrier dressings. The Nanocrystalline silver coating rapidly kills a broad spectrum of bacteria in as little as 30 minutes. Acticoat Flex 3 consist of a single layer of knitted polyester to ensure ultimate flexibility and comfort during wear time for the patient.

Directions

Remove Acticoat Flex 3 from the package, if the wound is dry or there is minimal exudate the dressing should be moistened with drinking water. Where there is moderate to high levels of exudate, the dressing does not need to be moistened.

Cut to appropriate size and shape.

Without stretching the dressing, apply to the wound, either side down. Make sure the direction of stretch is along the limb. When in use with negative pressure wound therapy, the wound filler material should be used and changed according to the manufacturers' instructions.

Keep the dressing moist. Change the dressing depending on the amount of exudate and the condition of the wound. Secure with an appropriate secondary dressing.

Warnings

Do not use on patients with a known sensitivity to silver.

In patients undergoing MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) Acticoat must be removed from the area within the anatomical field being imaged. If Acticoat is being used on any area not within the image field, it may remain in place during the MRI.

Prior to administering radiation therapy, remove Acticoat Flex. A new dressing can be applied following treatment.
