INTRASITE ™ Gel is an amorphous hydrogel which gently re-hydrates necrotic tissue, facilitating autolytic debridement, while being able to loosen and absorb slough and exudate. It can also be used to provide the optimum moist wound management environment during the later stages of wound closure. It is non-adherent and does not harm viable tissue or the skin surrounding the wound. This makes INTRASITE ™ Gel ideal for every stage in the wound management process.
Features Partially hydrated hydrogel formulation Contains propylene glycol APPLIPAK ™ container, available in range of sizes
Benefits INTRASITE ™ Gel's partially hydrated formulation allows the gel to donate moisture to drier environments and absorb in wetter environments, creating a moist wound management environment.
Debriding action INTRASITE ™ Gel rehydrates necrotic tissue and, by its gentle yet effective action, aids debridement.
Desloughing action INTRASITE ™ Gel absorbs slough and exudate without damaging fragile granulation tissue.
Creates a moist wound healing environment INTRASITE ™ Gel increases moisture content at the wound surface, helping prevent eschar formation. By keeping fragile granulation tissue moist and allowing the migration of epithelializing cells, INTRASITE ™ Gel helps to create an optimal moist wound management environment.
Non-adherent INTRASITE ™ Gel is non-adherent so it is easily removed from the wound by irrigation with normal saline; without damaging fragile tissue or causing unnecessary pain for the patient.
Extensive clinical support, suitable for use at all stages of the wound management process.
INTRASITE ™ Gel contains propylene glycol which acts as a humectant (moisturizer) which prevents the gel from drying out and improves handling.
Easy to use The unique Applipak system provides simple, directable and controlled application even in awkward wound sites.
Available in range of sizes Range of sizes available for wound size - controlling and reducing wastage for cost effective wound management.
Indications INTRASITE ™ Gel is used to create a moist wound environment for the treatment of minor conditions such as minor burns, superficial lacerations, cuts and abrasions (partial thickness wounds) and skin tears. Under the direction of a healthcare professional, INTRASITE ™ Gel is used to create a moist wound environment for the management of:
Venous ulcers (leg ulcers)
Diabetic foot ulcers
Pressure ulcers (including stage IV)
Creates a moist wound environment, which assists in autolytic debridement of wounds covered with necrotic tissues.
Precautions Known sensitivity to INTRASITE ™ Gel or any of its ingredients. INTRASITE ™ Gel should be used with care in the vicinity of the eyes and in deep wounds with narrow openings (e.g. fistulas) where removal of the gel may be difficult. INTRASITE ™ Gel is for external use only and should not be taken internally.
Instructions for Use: Step 1 INTRASITEGEL_Step1
Prepare wound site Remove secondary dressing. Irrigate wound with sterile saline solution to clean wound site.

Step 5 IntrasiteGel_Step5
Dress Wound Cover with a secondary dressing of choice e.g. Wound Stage Dressing Necrotic OPSITE ™ FLEXIGRID ™ Moisture Vapour Permeable Adhesive Film Dressing Sloughy ALLEVYN ™ Hydrocellular Wound Dressing / MELOLIN ™ Low-Adherent Absorbent Dressing Granulating ALLEVYN ™/MELOLIN ™/OPSITE ™ FLEXIGRID ™
Step 6 Removal of INTRASITE ™ Gel INTRASITE ™ Gel can be removed from the wound by rinsing with sterile saline solution. On necrotic and sloughy wounds, it is recommended that the dressing is changed at least every three days. On clean granulating wounds, the frequency of dressing changes depends on the clinical condition of the wound and the amount of exudate produced.
