DuoDERM Signal® dressing is an adhesive, tapered edge, modern hydrocolloid wound dressing with a change indicator. It incorporates a unique ConvaTec hydrocolloid formulation that distinguishes it from other hydrocolloid dressings. The adhesive hydrocolloid matrix and the outer film on DuoDERM Signal® dressing is permeable by moisture vapor and provides an occlusive barrier against bacteria, viruses, dirt and water. DuoDERM Signal® Dressing is indicated for the management of lightly to moderately exuding wounds.
OPTIMIZED DRESSING USE
Dressings have a visual indicator which indicates when a dressing needs changing, reducing premature dressing changes.
A thin, smooth, low-friction backing is designed to reduce shearing that can prematurely dislodge the dressing.
A thin polyurethane film provides a bacterialand viral barrier when the dressing remains intact and without leakage.
The film provides a waterproof barrier over the dressing.
It is easy to apply and can be removed without damaging newly formed tissue.
It helps to reduce bunching and the effect of shear through tapered edges and a smooth surface.
It helps to prevent damage to the wound bed on removal through a unique gelling action, ensuring maximum comfort.
