Description

UrgoTul is indicated for the treatment of acute wounds (burns, skin abrasions, traumatic wounds, post-operative wounds) and chronic wounds (leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers) at granulation and epithelialisation stages, and for the treatment of wounds of epidermolysis bullosa.

Flexible and very comformable, UrgoTul is especially suitable for covering anfractuous or awkwardly placed wounds and for wicking deep wounds.

Directions

Clean the wound following the usual care protocol, then rinse with normal saline.

In the event of prior use of an antiseptic, carefully rinse the wound with normal saline before applying UrgoTul.

Dry the surrounding skin carefully. • UrgoTul can be cut using sterile equipment to adjust, if needed, the size of the dressing to fit the wound.

Remove the protective wings.

Apply UrgoTul to the wound in a single layer.

Cover UrgoTul with a secondary dressing: sterile pad hold in place with a conforming bandage (K-Band/K-Lite), an adhesive tape or an elasticated tubular bandage.

Apply compression bandaging over UrgoTul when prescribed.

Dressing change:

UrgoTul should be changed every 2 to 4 days depending on the type of wound and its clinical condition.

UrgoTul may be left in place for up to 7 days dependent on wound condition and protocol (when prescribed with a compression bandage system for venous leg ulcers such as K-TWO).

For patients with congenital epidermolysis bullosa, the dressing should be changed after 1 to 3 days

Warnings

 UrgoTul adheres to latex surgical gloves; therefore, it is recommended to moisten the gloves with normal saline to facilitate handling of
the dressing.

If clinical signs of local infection are noted, treatment can be changed to an antibacterial dressing of Urgo range (such as UrgoTul SSD or UrgoTul Silver), dependent on clinical judgement.

In case of deep, anfractuous or fistula wound, a section of the dressing should be left visible to enable easy removal.

Single-use sterile individual packaging: re-using a single use dressing may lead to risks of infection.

Do not re-sterilise the dressing.
