Kendall AMD antimicrobial foam discs is an ideal dressing in the local management of exudate that may occur at surgically induced body exit sites such as

  • Catheter insertions (e.g. central venous catheters and peripherally inserted central catheters)
  • Tracheostomy sites
  • External fixation devices
  • G-tubes or J-tubes
  • Penrose drains
  • Chest drains
  • Nephrostomy sites
  • Central venous lines
  • Suprapubic catheters

Applying Kendall AMD antimicrobial foam disc*

  1. Cleanse the wound in accordance with normal procedures
  2. Dry the surrounding skin thoroughly
