Indications

Zorflex is indicated as an antimicrobial dressing for over discharging, partial or full thickness wounds such as:

  • Venous leg ulcers
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Fungating carcinomas
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Trauma
  • Surgical sites
  • Donor and recipient grafts

Contraindications

Not for use on dry wounds as this may cause the dressing to adhere to the wound.


Applying Zorflex*

  1. Cleanse the wound bed with sterile water or follow local guidelines, ensure that the wound bed is free from any traces of creams or ointments
  2. Cut the dressing to shape, covering the peri-wound if maceration is evident
  3. Apply the dressing directly to the wound surface either way up, with the direction of stretch running along the limb to allow movement
  4. Secure Zorflex with an appropriate secondary dressing/compression therapy or with a retention sheet, tape or bandage that allows the transfer of exudate into the secondary dressing without disturbing Zorflex or the wound bed N.B. The performance will be impaired if not placed directly onto the wound
