DuoDERM CGF dressing
is a hydrocolloid, moisture-retentive wound dressing used for partial

pressure ulcers (Stage II-IV), leg ulcers, superficial wounds, partial
thickness burns and donor sites.
DuoDerm CGF may be used for:
- Minor abrasions
- Minor cuts
- Minor scalds and burns
- Skin tears
- Leg ulcers (venous stasis ulcers, arterial ulcers and leg ulcers of mixed aetiology)
- Diabetic ulcers and pressure ulcers (partial & full thickness)
- Surgical wounds (post-operative, donor sites, dermatological excisions)
- Burns (first and second degree)
- Traumatic wounds
Directions for Use:
Before using the dressing, clean the wound area with a wound cleansing agent or normal saline and dry the surrounding skin. The size of the dressing to be applied to the wound should extend at least 1 1/4 inch (3.2 cm) beyond the edges of the wound.
- Remove the release paper from the back of the dressing being careful to minimize finger contact with the adhesive surface.
- Hold the dressing over the wound and line up the center of the dressing with the center of the wound.
- Gently roll the dressing into place over the wound. 4. Mold the dressing into place with your hand.
- Secure the edges of the dressing with medical or adhesive tape, if extra security is desired
- Discard any unused portion of the product after dressing the wound
NOTE: The dressing should be inspected frequently for leakage and bunch- ing/rolling up of edges. If any of these occur, the dressing should be changed. As wound fluid is absorbed by the dressing, gel formation may be visible on the outer surface of the dressing.
