Eclypse Non-Backed

Non-backed superabsorbent dressing

Eclypse Non-Backed

Product Description

​Eclypse Non-Backed is the next generation of non-backed superabsorbers. It features a double CrystaLock Technology layer, Advancis Medical’s unique superabsorbent crystals, separated by a lateral wicking layer, and two non-adherent outer layers.

CrystaLock Technology is highly absorbent, forming a gel when in contact with exudate. With an absorbency of 228g/cm2, the need for stacking is reduced so more than one dressing per changed is rarely needed. CrystaLock Technology locks exudate away, which reduces potential leaks and reduces the risk of maceration.
 
The outer layer of Eclypse Non-Backed is comfortable and flexible to allow the dressing to contour to the body. As this layer is on both sides of the dressing, you can simply place either side down on the wound. Although stacking isn’t usually needed, it is possible to do so with Eclypse Non-Backed for those extremely high exuding wounds that you are worried will leak before the next dressing change. You can even combine Eclypse Non-Backed with original Eclypse to take advantage of its non-strikethrough backing.

Use

Eclypse Non-Backed can be placed either side down on the wound.
 
For large wounds several dressings can be placed side-by-side and secured with an appropriate tape or bandage. Do not cut Eclypse Non-Backed.
 
Wear time will depend on the level of exudate but Eclypse Non-Backed can be left in place for up to seven days. Eclypse Non-Backed can be used under compression therapy.



Eclypse Non-Backed is a single use product. If used on more than one patient, cross-contamination or infection may result. Opening the dressing pack compromises the sterile barrier. Any unused dressings should be discarded.

Indications

Moderate to heavily exuding wounds: Leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, sloughy or granulating wounds, post-operative or dehisced wounds, fungating wounds, donor site management.
 
Eclypse Non-Backed can be used as a primary dressing on wounds where exudate management is required in a clean wound.  Eclypse Non-Backed can also be used as a secondary dressing for exudate management where another primary dressing has been applied for treatment of the wound bed e.g. Collagen, Manuka Honey or Alginate.

Contra-indications

Do not use Eclypse on arterial bleeds or heavily bleeding wounds.

FAQ

1. Are there any contra-indications for Eclypse dressings?
We do not advise use of Eclypse super absorbent dressings on arterial bleeds or heavily bleeding wounds. The wicking action and absorption of the dressing will absorb the blood making it difficult to assess the amount of blood loss.
2. Can Eclypse be cut?
All Eclypse dressings cannot be cut, the edges are sealed, cutting would lead to shedding of the internal fibres, which could lead to potential foreign body reactions in the wound.
3. Can Eclypse be used as both a primary, and secondary wound contact layer?
Eclypse Adherent® can be used on all wound types as either a primary or secondary dressing due to its unique soft silicone contact layer, which prevents adherence to the wound bed. On wounds with broken tissue it may be necessary to use an additional primary contact layer with Eclypse® for example Silflex®. Eclypse® can be used as a primary contact layer where the skin is in tact.
4. Can Eclypse be used under compression?
Yes Eclypse can be used under compression. In respect of use under compression, Eclypse in its dry state is a very flat dressing and will not adversely affect compression values.
5. Do you get strike-through with Eclypse?
The backing is a water resistant barrier film to prevent strike-through with a high moisture vapour transfer rate prolonging wear ability.
6. Does Eclypse cause maceration?
The dressing has a rapid wicking face combined with the highly absorbent moisture locking system. The absorbent layer provides a large capacity with rapid fluid uptake ensuring the exudate is drawn away from the wound bed and surrounding tissue, preventing maceration.
7. How do we know when to change Eclypse?
Eclypse can be left in place for up to 7 days but will need to be changed more frequently depending on the level of exudate. Once saturated the dressing may become heavy and sag these are all signs that the Eclypse needs to be renewed.
8. How long can you leave Eclypse on for?
Wear time will depend on the level of exudate, daily changes may be required, but Eclypse can be left in place for up to 7 days. Because of the excellent fluid handling capability of the dressing, it may become heavy and cause sagging when saturated. Once the crystals are swollen and full of exudate they may cause pressure on the wound bed making it necessary to change Eclypse.
9. How much fluid does Eclypse hold?
The Eclypse dressings will rapidly absorb fluid with a capacity for 6000gms/sq meter. This volume can be absorbed and retained within the dressing in a period of 5 minutes.
10. How should I choose between the regular Eclypse and the adherent one?
Eclypse Adherent is the dressing of choice, when skin is fragile or when any adherence would lead to trauma or pain.
