IODOSORB ™Gel is a sterile formulation of Cadexomer Iodine. When applied to the wound, IODOSORB ™ cleans it by absorbing fluids, removing exudate, slough and debris and forming a gel over the wound surface. As the gel absorbs exudate, iodine is released, killing bacteria and changing color as the iodine is used up.

Features
A 3-in-1 mode of action kills bacteria, manages exudate, and debrides the wound bed.

Benefits

  • A change in color (white) indicates when IODOSORB ™ should be changed.

  • In patients with a prior history of Graves Disease it is not recommended to use iodine containing products, which includes IODOSORB ™ Gel.

Instructions for Use:

Step 1
Open tube and squeeze gel on to a non-adherent gauze to the shape of the ulcer and to a depth of 3 to 4 mm. Position the gel face of the gauze on the wound surface and apply mild pressure to fix in place.

Step 2
Gently take off the existing dressing which should be moistened with saline if it is tending to adhere to the wound surface. Remove any remaining IODOSORB ™ with a gentle stream of saline or sterile water if applicable. Gently blot away any excess fluid before re-applying IODOSORB ™.
