Exudate Management – For moderately to heavily exuding malodorous wounds
Carboflex dressing is a five-layer dressing specifically designed to address the management
problems associated with malodorous wounds.
Carboflex dressing provides effective exudate control and odour adsorption while being soft and conformable. Carboflex dressing may be used as a primary dressing for shallow wounds or with deeper wounds as a secondary dressing over a wound filler.
•Supports moist wound healing environment
•Effectively controls wound malodour
•Absorbs and controls exudate
•Non-adherent allowing less traumatic
•Soft and conformable
•Aesthetically pleasing to patients
•May help relieve feelings of social isolation
Carefully cleanse the wound with saline and dry surrounding skin. Choose a dressing size that
is large enough to overlap the wound edge by at least 3cm. For shallow wounds, Carboflex dressing can be used as a primary dressing. For deeper wounds, Carboflex dressing may be
used as a secondary dressing over a suitable cavity filler.
Place the fibrous (non-shiny) surface of the dressing directly onto the wound or over the cavity
filler. The absorbent wound contact layer will form a soft gel when in contact with wound exudate.
For wounds with very heavy levels of exudate, use an appropriate absorptive dressing such as
AQUACEL dressing as a primary dressing (either ribbon for cavities or a sheet for shallow wounds) and Carboflex dressing as a secondary dressing.
Carboflex dressing can be secured in place with tape or other appropriate material.
