Product Description

Details

Vliwasorb Pro 12.5cm x 12.5cm (x10) Superabsorbent Wound Dressing REF: 32 641
New improved version of Flivasorb.
Highly conformable dressing for highly exuding wounds
Curved for fit

Vliwasorb Pro may be used as a primary wound dressing – its integrated wound contact layer negates the need to use an additional contact layer underneath – saving budget.

Key benefits:

Improved absorbency. The new spherical structure of the polymers provide greater surface area, giving Vliwasorb® Pro greater absorbency capacity than Flivasorb®*.

Up to 25% improvement in absorption capacity (g/100cm2)*

10% improvement in absorption capacity under pressure (g/100cm2)

Comfort and conformability
New ergonomic shape, flexible design and softer absorbent core

Easy to retain
Comfortable for patients to wear
Effective exudate management
Very high absorbency and retention capacity

Protects against maceration - improving peri-wound skin
Longer dressing change intervals - saving time and money, with less disturbance of the wound
Effective under compression - a combined approach can be taken to optimise healing potential
Locks away harmful proteases and bacteria
Proteases and microbes are bound in the superabsorbent polymer core

Reduces the microbial burden
Reduces odours
Protection and safety
Blue clothing protection layer and smooth wound contact layer

Atraumatic dressing changes
Protects the patient's clothing and bed linen
*Test methods as follows: 1 Absorption capacity: PV-QMS-A-011 based on DIN EN ISO 13726 2 Absorption capacity under pressure: internal method description MB 44 based on SMTL TM-414

How to use:

1. Cleanse the wound as per normal protocol and pat the edges dry.

2. Select the most appropriate shape and size of Vliwasorb Pro, following assessment of the area to which this will be applied. E.g. if the patient has a leg ulcer on the gaiter region, a rectangular dressing applied up the limb may be most suitable.

3. Apply the white side of Vliwasorb Pro to the wound.

4. In the case of deep wounds (e.g. laparotomy wounds), an appropriate dressing may be laid into the cavity first before applying Vliwasorb Pro, depending on the wound status.

5. Ensure appropriate retention of Vliwasorb Pro to secure the dressing against the wound. Compression systems (e.g. Actico®) may be used. If compression is not required/appropriate then an effective retention bandage should be used.

6. Vliwasorb® Pro should be changed when the absorbent capacity of the dressing has been reached. This is dependent upon the individual wound condition.

Indications for use:

Superficial wounds with moderate to very high levels of exudate, including:

Chronic wounds e.g. leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers, oncological wounds
Acute wounds e.g. partial thickness burns, postoperative wounds, trauma wounds, skin graft donor sites

Contraindications:

Do not use Vliwasorb Pro on patients sensitive to any component of the dressing.
Do not use Vliwasorb Pro in cavity wounds, as the dressing will expand upon absorption of exudate.
Do not use Vliwasorb Pro on lightly or non-exuding wounds.
Do not cut or tear Vliwasorb Pro.
It is not necessary to use a contact layer underneath Vliwasorb® Pro, as Vliwasorb Pro has an integrated wound contact layer.
