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.
- Partially hydrated hydrogel formulation
- Contains propylene glycol
- APPLIPAK container, available in range of sizes
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.
INTRASITE ™ Gel rehydrates necrotic tissue and, by its gentle yet effective action, aids debridement.
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.
Effective yet gentle action leaves delicate granulation tissue undisturbed helping to reduce trauma.
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.
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)
- Surgical incisions
- Diabetic foot ulcers
- Pressure ulcers (including stage IV)
- Creates a moist wound environment, which assists in autolytic debridement of wounds covered with necrotic tissues.
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:
Prepare wound site
Remove secondary dressing. Irrigate wound with sterile saline solution to clean wound site.
Remove blue protective cap from the nozzle.
Swab the snap-off tip and nozzle of the pack with a suitable antiseptic swab. Snap the patterned tip off the nozzle.
Snap the patterned tip off the nozzle.
Introduce INTRASITE ™ Gel into the wound
Keeping the nozzle tip clear of the wound surface, gently press the bowl of the pack to dispense gel into the wound. Smooth INTRASITE ™ Gel over surface of wound to a depth of approximately 5mm (0.2in.). Discard any unused gel.
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 ™
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.
