• Description

    Cavidagel® is a Sterile Amorphous Hydrogel with alginate.

    Intended Purpose
    • Cavidagel® is primarily intended for the treatment of necrotic and sloughy wounds, e.g. leg ulcers, pressure ulcers and non-infected diabetic foot ulcers.
    • Cavidagel® may also be used on first and second degree burns.
    • The gel may be used throughout the healing process to provide a moist wound healing environment in all types of wounds, except those mentioned under precautions.
    • May be used on patients with local and systemic infections under the discretion of a healthcare professional.
    • In case of allergic reactions, please discontinue use directly and consult your doctor.
    • For external use only.
    • Do not reuse the product (Reuse may pose risk of infection).
    • If packaging is broken do not use or re-sterilize product.
    • Rinse the wound with physiological saline or tap water.
    • To optimise the use of Cavidagel®, apply according to the diagrams shown below.
    • Gently dry the skin around the wound.
    • The wound should not be filled to a higher level than the surrounding skin.
    • Cover with a secondary dressing. For low to medium exuding wounds, choose a hydrocolloid as a secondary dressing e.g. Pharmacoll® Comfort or Pharmacoll® Comfort Plus. For medium to highly exuding wounds, choose a highly absorbent and highly permeable dressing to cover e.g. Espuma® Comfort or Espuma® Comfort Plus. For slightly or non-exuding wounds, Cavdiagel® could be covered with film dressing e.g. Protecfilm®.
    • To optimise cleansing of necrotic and sloughy wounds, it is recommended to change Cavidagel® at least every third day, due to the large amount of exudate. In case of clean wounds, Cavidagel® should be changed depending on the amount of exudate.
    • The gel can be removed from the wound by rinsing with physiological saline or tap water.
