The two liquid components (A and B) are mixed together and poured into the moist cavity wound where they form a white foam which conforms to the contours of the wound.
- Fits all wound shapes
- Maintains a moist wound environment
- Prevents premature wound closure
- Provides patient comfort
- Economical and convenient
Fits All Wound Shapes
Cavi-Care dressing expands and cures within the cavity wound making it the only dressing that conforms exactly to the wound, including irregularly shaped wounds. It's a three-dimensional structure that forms a stent in the wound cavity.
Maintains a Moist Wound Environment
The distinctive method of producing Cavi-Care conforming foam wound dressing in-situ generates a controlled cellular structure which helps to create a moist wound environment.
Prevents Premature Wound Closure
- The unique ability of Cavi-Care to conform to the exact wound contours allows the wound to remain open and thereby prevents premature wound closure.
Provides Patient Comfort
- The soft and resilient nature of Cavi-Care combined with the exact conformity of the dressing provide added comfort and convenience for the patient. Cavi-Care is less traumatic to the wound on removal than conventional gauze packing.
Economical and Convenient
- Cavi-Care can be removed, cleansed, and replaced in the wound. Alternatively, a new dressing can be made on a regular basis.
- Cavi-Care is indicated as a dressing for moist, low exuding granulating cavity wounds.
- Cavi-Care can also be used as a post operative support foam.
Contraindications / Precautions
- Cavi-Care should not be used in wounds which have tunnels, sinuses or deep fistulae
- Cavi-Care should not be used in wounds which are 'dry'
- Cavi-Care should not be used in mucous membranes, including eyes and nose
- For external use only
- Use gloves when preparing the dressing
- Avoid contact with the eyes or with clothing
As a dressing for moist low exuding granulating wounds
- Cavi-Care should only be used in wounds that are open and well-shaped with all tracts and pockets widely exposed
- Normal wound care – such as removal of slough and necrotic tissue and treatment of clinically infected wounds is still required with the use of Cavi-Care
As a post operative support foam
- Coat the edges of the surgical site with petroleum jelly, white soft paraffin or apply a Tulle Gras dressing (i.e. Jelonet*) to prevent adherence.
