IODOFLEX ™ Pads are sterile formulations of Cadexomer Iodine. When applied to the wound, they absorb fluids, removing exudate, pus and debris and forming a gel over the wound surface. As they absorb, iodine is released, killing bacteria and changing color.

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

Helps Promote Wound Healing

  • Exudate and debris is removed effectively.
  • IODOFLEX ™ helps to promote a clean wound healing environment.
  • A change in color (white) indicates when IODOFLEX ™ should be changed.
  • Gel formed over the wound promotes moist healing.
  • Accelerated healing rates can lead to earlier patient discharges.

Fewer Dressing Changes

  • IODOFLEX ™ Pads contain Cadexomer iodine which can absorb up to 6 times its weight in fluid.
  • Range of sizes to suit most wound sizes.

Patient comfort

  • IODOFLEX ™ Pads treat infection, associated pain is reduced which can improve quality of life.
  • IODOFLEX ™ is non-adhesive which can reduce trauma at dressing changes and encourage patient compliance.

IODOFLEX ™ Pads - For use in cleaning wet ulcers and wounds such as venous stasis ulcers, pressure sores, diabetic foot ulcers, and infected traumatic and surgical wounds.

Contraindications / Precautions

IODOFLEX ™ is contraindicated in:

  • patients with known or suspected iodine sensitivity
  • Hashimoto's thyroiditis
  • non-toxic nodular goitre
  • children

IODOFLEX ™ should not be used:

  • by pregnant or lactating women

Special Warnings and Precautions for Use
Iodine may be absorbed systemically, especially when large wounds are treated. Patients with severely impaired renal function or a past history of any thyroid disorder are more susceptible to alterations in thyroid metabolism with chronic IODOFLEX ™ therapy.

In endemic goitre, there have been isolated reports of hyperthyroidism associated with exogenous idoine.

It has been observed occasionally that an adherent crust can form when IODOFLEX ™ is not changed with sufficient frequency.

Instructions for Use:

Step 1

  • Clean the wound and the surrounding area with either a gentle stream of sterile water or saline. DO NOT DRY the wound surface.
  • Remove the carrier gauze on both sides of the paste using aseptic technique.
  • Apply IODOFLEX ™ to the wound surface. Apply compression bandaging when appropriate. Any remaining IODOFLEX ™ should be discarded.

Step 2

  • IODOFLEX ™ should be changed when it has become saturated with wound fluid, indicated by loss of colour, usually two to three times a week. If the wound is discharging heavily, daily changes may be needed.
  • If necessary, soak the dressing for a few minutes.
  • Gently remove the IODOFLEX ™ using a stream of sterile water or saline.
  • Gently blot any excess fluid, leaving the wound surface slightly moist, before re-applying IODOFLEX ™.

Step 3
After Using IODOFLEX ™

  • IODOFLEX ™ may cause smarting especially in the first hour after treatment. Occasionally, IODOFLEX ™ may cause the skin around the wound edges to redden. If the symptoms persist, or you experience other symptoms, please contact your doctor or nurse.
