ReSkin, Silicone Skin Technology

SPYCRA CONTACT TWO

 

Elastic, one-sided silicone adhesive wound contact layer  with self-adhering properties made of soft and flexible  polyamide fibers.  Elastic, repositionable  and rounded edges to stay better in place.

When being used on exuding wounds, the wide scaled pore structure of the wound contact layer allows  an optimal vertical migration of wound fluid towards an absorbent secondary dressing. Does not absorb.

SOFT, FLEXIBLE & THIN

Features

  • Flexible, light & comfortable
  • Follows the contours of the skin; perfect fit
  • Soft polyester top layer; no plastic feeling
  • Low friction coefficient
  • Embossed liners for easy application

Benefits

  • Fits perfectly to joints and skin-folds; stays well in place
  • Follows the movements of the skin
  • Comfortable to wear

 

DOUBLE SIDED, SOFT SILICONE ADHESIVE

Features

  • Secondary dressing does not stick onto the wound contact layer when changing secondary dressing or when evaluating  healing process
  • No pain and trauma/secondary lesions when changing the dressing
  • Gentle & optimal adherence
  • Dressing can be repositioned allowing safe and easy wound inspection during care process
  • Minimal risk for skin irritation or allergy
  • Perfect sealing of the wound edges; no risk for maceration of surrounding skin

Benefits

  • Easy to use; does not stick onto gloves, bed linen, …
  • Painless dressing changes; increased patient comfort
  • Easy removal of the dressing; less time spending
  • No risk for maceration of the wound edges; the surrounding skin stays dry and healthy
  • Minimal risk for damaging newly formed tissues

 

TRANSPARENT DRESSING WITH  INCREASED % OF OPEN WIDE SCALED PORES

Features

  • Fast vertical migration of wound fluid towards a secondary absorbing dressing
  • Breathable; minimal risk for maceration of the wound edges and surrounding skin
  • No risk for maceration of wound bed
  • Visual inspection of wound bed

Benefits

  • Long wear time; stays well in place
  • Many applications; minimal risk when used on difficult to heal wounds
  • Easy follow-up of wound healing process

The wide scaled pore structure of the dressing  allows excess of  wound fluid  to pass vertically towards an outer absorbent dressing. The soft silicone layer seals off the wound edges avoiding maceration and keeping the surrounding skin dry and healthy  limiting the risk of maceration.  The outer absorbent dressing needs to be changed if needed  and limits the risk of maceration; change frequency  depends  on the condition of the wound and the amount of wound exsudate.  The integrity of the wound contact layer  and the features of the soft silicone layer allow a wearing time up to several days. The soft and perfect adherence  on the skin secures no  loss of epidermis during  changes and makes these changes as pain free as possible.

  • Interface to be used on medium to heavy exuding wounds such as abrasions, surgical incisions, partial thickness burns, transplants, diabetic ulcers, venous and arterial ulcers, pressure sores, Negative Pressure Wound Therapy,…
  • Skin tears  with or without tissue loss
  • E.B.
  1. Clean the wound carefully and dry the surrounding skin thoroughly.
  2. Choose a Spycra Contact Two that covers the wound and the surrounding skin by at least 2 cm. In case of large wounds, it is preferable to get a larger protection of the surrounding skin.
  3. When you hold Spycra Contact Two, make sure the large protective foil is upwards; take off the protective foil. Moisten gloves to avoid adherence of Spycra Contact Two onto the gloves.
  4. Apply Spycra Contact Two on the wound and gently smooth and ensure a good seal
    onto the surrounding skin.
  5. Remove the remaining protective foil. If necessary, Spycra Contact Two can be lifted and repositioned.
    Where clinically indicated, treatments such as topical steroids, topical antimicrobials
    or hydrogels can be applied above or under Spycra Contact Two.
  6. Apply a secondary absorbing dressing on top Spycra Contact Two.
  7. A large fixation dressing or bandage can be used to have an optimal fixation of the
    secondary dressing. Can be used under compression bandages.

 

Frequency of change

Spycra Contact Two can be left in place up to 14 days or as long as the commonly used protocol proposes and depends on the condition of the wound  (exsudate should pass freely through the dressing and the pores should not be blocked). If saturated, the outer secondary absorbent dressing  should be changed.

For single use.

If the condition of the wound deteriorates unexpectedly, consult a healthcare professional for the appropriate medical treatment.

 

Precautions

  • The wound should be inspected for signs of infection according to
    clinical practice. Consult a healthcare professional for the appropriate
    medical treatment.
  • Spycra Contact Two may be used on Epidermolysis Bullosa patients (E.B.)
    after consulting a qualified health care professional
  • Spycra Contact Two used on partial thickness burns with high risk of rapid granulation:
    avoid placing unnecessary pressure upon the dressing and lift or reposition
    the dressing at least every second day.
  • When Spycra Contact Two is used for the fixation of skin grafts and protection
    of blisters, the dressing should not be changed before the¬ fifth day post application.
  • when used on bleeding wounds or wounds with high viscosity exudate,
    Spycra Contact Two should be covered with a moist absorbent dressing.
  • Moist skin or heavy transpiration will diminish the adherence of Spycra Contact Two . Before applying the dressing, make sure the skin is completely dry.

 

Sterility is guaranteed unless inner package is damaged or opened prior to use.  Do not re-sterilize

When  re-using  Spycra Contact Two, it is obvious that the wound contact layer  isn’t sterile anymore and can contaminated. As a consequence, applying Spycra Contact Two on a wound increases the risk of wound infection. Usage is on own risk.
