Cavidagel® is a Sterile Amorphous Hydrogel with alginate.
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.
