alginate gel with enzymes that kill absorbed bacteria1

1

Flaminal ® Hydro or Flaminal® Forte?
Mild to moderately exuding wounds Moderate to heavily exuding wounds Flaminal® Hydro as exudate reduces Flaminal® Forte

Flaminal® Hydro has 3.5% alginate gel. Flaminal® Forte has 5.5% alginate gel.

2

Apply the gel
(a) First clean and rinse the wound as you would normally (b) Dab dry carefully (c) Apply a thick layer (5mm) of either Flaminal® Hydro or Flaminal® Forte to the wound in a sterile manner

3

Dress the wound
Dress according to the amount of exudate. Choose an absorbent dressing for wetter wounds. On drier wounds, use one that reduces evaporation and prevents the wound from drying out. Heavy exudate Absorbing, non-adherent compress fixed by a bandage or tape Non-woven gauze with a bandage or adhesive plaster Light exudate Transparent film (polyurethane) or paraffin gauze with a bandage

4

Change the dressing
• In yellow/sloughy or necrotic wounds, Flaminal® should be changed every 1–2 days. • In drier/granulating wounds, Flaminal® should be changed every 3–4 days. The dressing can stay in place for as long as the gel structure is intact: 1–4 days, depending upon the amount of exudate.
