Indications

Kliniderm silicone wound contact layer is indicated for chronic and acute wounds such as:

  • Skin tears
  • Traumatic wounds
  • Cuts, abrasions and lacerations
  • Blisters
  • Superficial and partial thickness burns
  • Surgical wounds
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Leg ulcers
  • Can also be used as a wound protective layer on non-exuding wounds and on areas with fragile skin

Applying Kliniderm silicone wound contact layer*

  1. Clean the wound area according to local protocols. Ensure the peri-wound skin is dry
  2. Select a suitable size so that the dressing overlaps the wound margins by at least 1cm. Larger wounds may require more overlap
  3. Gently apply directly onto the wound site, peel off the carrier film of the dressing and gently smooth down the wound edges to ensure good adhesion
  4. Cover the contact layer with an appropriate secondary absorbent dressing such as Kliniderm superabsorbent
