Due to the non-adhesive nature of the dressing, it is recommended in the treatment of wounds in which the skin around the lesion is weakened.
Known sensitisation to Silver and other ingredients of the dressing.
Do not use on patients undergoing Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) examination.
Treatment with UrgoTul Ag should be carried out under medical supervision.
Use of this dressing does not negate the need for appropriate systemic anti-bacterial treatment of infected wounds in line with local policy.
Urgotul Ag/Silver can adhere to surgical gloves (latex). Consequently, it is recommended that the gloves be moistened with normal saline in order to make it easier to hold the dressing.
Concomitant use with other local treatments is not recommended.
Do not use in pregnant or breast-feeding women, newborn and premature babies in the absence of any specific clinical data.
Clinicians / Healthcare Professionals should be aware that there are very limited data on:
prolonged and repeated use of silver containing dressings, particularly in children and neonates, and,
use of silver containing dressings during radiation treatment.
The use of UrgoTul Ag in these cases is left to the discretion of the healthcare professional.
Avoid contact with electrodes or conductive gels during electronic measurements, e.g. EEG and ECG.
Do not use in a hyperbaric chamber.
Single-use, individual and sterile dressing: The reuse of a single use product may entail risks of infection.
(*) Check that the sterile protector is intact before use. Do not use if package is damaged.
Do not re-sterilise.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
The UrgoTul Ag dressing can be changed every 1 to 3 days depending on the wound treated and the course of healing
After a maximum of 14 days, a medical assessment is required to determine whether the therapeutic goal has been achieved in order to switch the treatment to a silver-free dressing, and if not, to re-evaluate the suitability of continuing treatment with a silver dressing.
The maximal duration of the treatment with UrgoTul Ag is one month.
