DuoDERM® Signal™ dressing

 

 

Visual change indicator designed to make dressing change decisions easier.

DuoDERM® Signal™ dressing is a primary dressing for low-to-moderately exuding wounds.

It can also be used as a secondary dressing to secure AQUACEL® dressing or AQUACEL® Ag dressing.

The European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (EPUAP) and The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP) guidelines recommend the usage of hydrocolloids for the management of pressure ulcers.1

DuoDERM® Signal™ dressing can be used to manage stage I and stage II pressure ulcers.


OPTIMISED DRESSING USE

  • Dressings have a visual indicator which indicates when dressing needs changing, reducing premature dressing changes
  • Thin, smooth low-friction backing designed to reduce shearing that can prematurely dislodge the dressing

PROTECTION

  • Thin polyurethane film provides a bacterial2  and viral3 barriera b when the dressing remains intact and without leakage
  • Film provides a waterproof barrier over the dressing
  • Easy to apply and can be removed without damaging newly formed tissue
  • Helps to reduce rucking and the effect of shear through tapered edges and a smooth surface
  • Helps prevent damage to the wound bed on removal through a unique gelling action; ensuring maximum comfort4

EASE OF APPLICATION

  • The tapered edge contours to difficult areasc
