Nurse's Notes

This is the basic Duoderm dressing with no special features. A long-time favorite of home health nurses for treating pressure sores especially effective on sacral coccyx area above buttocks, elbows and heels. TIP: Apply Skin-Prep first to area where duoderm is to be applied, allow it to dry, and apply duoderm dressing or patch. Duoderm will definitely stay in place longer and skin will be protected when removed. DuoDERM CGF (control gel formula) Border dressings interact with wound exudate to produce a soft gel mass that enables removal of the dressing with minimal damage to newly formed granulating tissues. DuoDERM CGF dressing’s unique hydrocolloid composition provides an optimal moist wound environment that is supportive of the wound-healing process, and protects the wound by creating a bacterial and viral barrier while the dressing remains intact. DuoDERM CGF dressing can remain in place for a up to 7 days.
