Vellafilm - Semi-permeable Adherent Silicone Film Dressing

Vellafilm - Semi-permeable Adherent Silicone Film Dressing

Product Description

Vellafilm is a transparent, atraumatic, polyurethane film dressing with Silfix soft silicone adherence. It is designed to protect the wound whilst minimising the pain and trauma associated with dressing change.

The soft silicone will adhere to surrounding dry skin but not to a moist wound. The clear film exhibits the optimum moisture vapour transfer rate. The dressing is transparent allowing observation of the wound site or primary dressing minimising dressing change frequency. The film backing acts as a bacterial barrier and has a low coefficient of friction to reduce potential tissue damage from sheer or friction.

Instructions for Use

  • Ensure the wound has been cleaned
  • Gently dry the surrounding skin
  • Remove from packaging and remove the clear liners
  • place directly over a wound or primary contact dressing ensuring an overlap around the wound edges of at least 2cm
  • Store at room temperature, out of direct sunlight and keep dry

Frequency of change

Vellafilm can be left in place for up to 7 days depending on the wound condition

Indications

• Superficial epithelialising wounds
• To protect the dermis by reducing sheer and
friction.
• Retention of primary wound contact layers and absorbent dressings
• Vellafilm is particularly suited to patients with friable skin.

Contra-indications

Silfix Technology

Vellafilm has unique Silfix Technology designed to minimise trauma associated with dressing change.

Silfix Techonology ensures that Vellafilm gently adheres to the skin surrounding a wound, and not to the wound bed itself, to minimise the pain and trauma associated with dressing application and removal.
