How it Works

  • SPECIFICATIONS

Maintains an optimum wound healing environment

Its unique combination of natural biopolymers combines the structural support of collagen and the gel-forming properties of alginates.
The result: a sterile, soft, absorbent and conformable topical wound dressing.

In the presence of wound fluid, FIBRACOL™ Plus Dressing helps maintain a physiologically moist microenvironment at the wound surface. This environment supports granulation tissue formation, epithelialization and rapid wound healing.
 
The unique combination of collagen and alginate is designed to address a wide range of indicated wound types and exudate levels.

Product description
FIBRACOL™ Plus Collagen Wound Dressing with Alginate is an advanced wound care device composed of collagen and calcium alginate fibers. Its unique combination of natural biopolymers created by a patented process combines the structural support of collagen and the gel forming properties of alginates into a sterile, soft, absorbent, conformable topical wound dressing. In the presence of wound fluid FIBRACOL™ Plus Dressing maintains a physiologically moist microenvironment at the wound surface that is conducive to granulation tissue formation, epithelialization, and enables healing to proceed at a rapid rate. FIBRACOL™ Plus Dressing is versatile as a primary wound dressing, it can be cut to the exact size of the wound, multi-layered for the management of deep wounds and used in combination with either a semi-occlusive or non-occlusive secondary dressing.

Indications & Applications

  • INDICATIONS
  • APPLICATIONS
Specific indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions and safety information exist for KCI products and therapies. Healthcare providers should review the product User Manual, Safety Information and/or Instructions for Use prior to application.

 

FIBRACOL™ Plus Dressing is indicated for the management of exuding wounds including:
  • Diabetic ulcers
  • Venous ulcers
  • Pressure injuries
  • Ulcers caused by mixed vascular etiologies
  • Full-thickness & partial thickness wounds
  • Second-degree burns
  • Donor sites and other bleeding surface wounds
  • Abrasions
  • Traumatic wounds healing by secondary intention
  • Dehisced surgical wounds


Precautions

FIBRACOL™ Plus Dressing may be used when visible signs of infection are present in the wound area only when proper medical treatment addresses the underlying cause. FIBRACOL™ Plus Dressing may be used under compression therapy with healthcare professional supervision.

Applications

Directions for Use

  • Debride when necessary and irrigate the wound site with normal saline solution.
  • Remove excess solution from surrounding skin.
  • For heavily exuding wounds, apply to wound bed directly. For wounds with minimal exudate, apply to moistened wound bed; this will initiate the gel forming process.
  • Pack deep wounds loosely. The dressing can be cut to size with sterile scissors. The amount of FIBRACOL™ Plus Dressing to be used depends on the size of the wound and the amount of exudate.
  • FIBRACOL™ Plus Dressing may be covered with either a non-occlusive secondary dressing and fixed to the skin with a non-irritating tape or a semi-occlusive dressing (e.g TIELLE™ Hydropolymer Adhesive Dressing or TIELLE™ Plus Hydropolymer Adhesive Dressing).
  • Reapply FIBRACOL™ Plus Dressing when the secondary dressing has reached its absorbent capacity or whenever good wound care practice dictates that the dressing should be changed. A heavily exuding wound may require daily or twice daily dressing changes. More moderately exuding wounds will require less frequent changes (every 2 to 4 days or as directed by a healthcare professional). Following the initial application, irrigate the wound with saline solution. Reapply FIBRACOL™ Plus Dressing as previously instructed.



FIBRACOL™ Plus Dressing may be used under compression therapy with healthcare professional supervision.

FIBRACOL Dressing can be cut to size.


Dressing Removal
After gently removing the secondary dressing, lift any FIBRACOLTM Plus Dressing that has not formed a gel and discard. Using normal saline, gently irrigate the wound to remove any residual gel.
