It’s Time to Change the Bandage You Use and Prescribe
Instructions for Use
The DrySee™ Bandage with Pad is a waterproof barrier dressing with a wetness indicator. The dressing consists of a non-adherent absorbent cotton pad bonded to a clear film with a non-latex skin adhesive. The film is a barrier to prevent contamination from the outside. An outer absorbent ring intercepts and traps moisture which may intrude, possibly from a shower. When wet, the color of the cotton pad changes from light blue to darker blue.
The DrySee™ Bandage with Pad is designed to cover acute wounds such as cuts, abrasions, partial-thickness burns, IV-sites and incisions. It is also designed to cover low-exuding partial-thickness chronic wounds including pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers or venous ulcers. It is also designed to be worn into a shower as a protective dressing to assist in maintaining wound dryness. This product is not designed, sold or intended for use except as indicated.
This dressing is not a replacement for suture or as a primary wound closure method. It is not an alternate to a hemostatic dressing for severe bleeding.
- Stop bleeding before use
- Do not stretch the bandage during application
- Dry skin which is free of lotions or oils allow the best adhesion
- Not for use on infected wounds except under the supervision of a healthcare professional
Select a bandage size to fully cover the wound with the absorbent pad while providing adhesive attachment to healthy skin.
- Clean and prepare site per internal protocol
- Excess hair should be clipped to increase adhesion
- Allow cleaning or prep fluids to fully dry prior to attachment
- Open the package and remove the sterile dressing. Gloves are recommended.
- Peel and remove the paper liner(s)
- Position the framed dressing over the wound or catheter site and apply
- Press gently to adhere to the skin
- Remove the paper-frame from the dressing while preventing wrinkles and insuring firm attachment to the skin
The site should be monitored for signs of infection.
