General DescriptionElasto-Gel™ is a unique patented bacteriostatic highly absorbent wound dressing that provides fast and comfortable dressing changes (due to its mildly adhesive properties). Elasto-Gel™ will not dry out or stick to the wound.
Bacteriostatic: Elasto-Gel™ has been shown to be bacteriostatic and to reduce the level of bacteria compared to other wound dressings. It has also shown inhibition of growth of five (5) major problem microbes, which are Pseudomonas A., MRSA, Staphylococcus a., E. coli, and Streptococcus p., in appropriate agar medium. In addition, J. Vandeputte and Hoekstra have shown that bacterial growth is essentially eliminated when dressings were changed on a regular basis.Highly Absorbent:Independent laboratory studies have shown that Elasto-Gel™ absorbs 3.5 times more exudate at 24 hours than commonly recognized high absorbent dressings. Elasto-Gel™ may be used in place of hydrocolloids, hydrogels and membrane dressings. Elasto-Gel™ will not replace alginates when quick absorption is indicated. Elasto-Gel™ absorbs exudate, protects the wound, promotes a moist wound environment, will not macerate healthy skin, and never dries out.
Directions For Use
Caution: The dressing must be protected from water or moisture.
Caution: Consult a physician if signs of infection occur: fever, swelling, pain, etc.
