Evidence-based action plans for hydrating dry wounds include creation of a moist wound environment to prevent wound drying and to allow autolytic debridement to occur.
DuoDERM® Hydroactive® Gel
It is beneficial for patient health that trained healthcare professionals use DuoDERM® Hydroactive® Gel at the right point in time during the healing of a wound.
The gel facilitates autolytic debridement.
It moisturizes, bringing needed moisture to dry, necrotic, sloughy or granulating wounds.
A sterile nozzle is provided for ease of application.
