INADINE® PVP-I Non-Adherent Dressing
WHAT IS IT? INADINE® PVP-I Non-Adherent Dressing consists of a low adherent knitted viscose fabric impregnated with a polyethylene glycol (PEG) base containing 10% Povidone Iodine; equivalent to 1.0% available iodine. INADINE® Dressings are designed to protect the wound, even if infected.
HOW DOES IT WORK? The Povidone molecule provides an effective, and controlled release of iodine. The polyethylene glycol provides a water-soluble environment, which allows the Iodine to reach the bacteria in the wound. INADINE® Dressing has long been established for use in wound care, its features include: • Povidone Iodine controls bacteria by reducing bacterial load and inhibits infection 1-3 • Povidone Iodine is a broad spectrum antimicrobial 1-3 • Safe for use on adults and children and in combination with systemic antibiotics 1-3
INDICATIONS: INADINE® Dressing is designed to protect the wound, even if infected. INADINE® Dressing is indicated for the management of ulcerative wounds and may also be used for the prevention of infection in minor burns and traumatic skin loss injuries. How do I use it? Application Apply directly to the wound or burn site. To ensure INADINE® dressing stays in situ, use with a secondary dressing like TIELLE® Hydropolymer dressing. Changing the dressing When the colour of the dressing turns to white, this indicates the loss of antiseptic efficacy and this is when the INADINE® dressing should be changed.
