How To Use
- Wash your hands and put on gloves.
- Assess the ulcer and skin. Assess the ulcer size, drainage & appearance.
- Clean the affected area gently with sponge and cleaning agent. Rinse with normal saline solution.
- Position the patient’s leg in a slightly flexed position.
- Apply Unnaplast® in a circular motion from the foot to the knee. The wrap should be snug but not tight. To cover the area completely, be sure each turn overlaps the previous one by half the bandage’s width.
- Continue wrapping the patient’s leg up to the knee, using firm even pressure. Mold the boot with your free hand as you apply the bandage to make it smooth.
- Apply an elastic or cohesive bandage to secure dressing and maintain compression.
- Observe the patient’s foot for signs of impairment, such as cyanosis, loss of feeling, or swelling. (This indicates that the bandage is too tight and should be rewrapped.)
- Leave the boot on for 5 to 7 days, or as ordered by the physician.
- Remove the boot with a sterile tongue blade and bandage scissors or scalpel.
