Sorbact® Ribbon Gauze

Sorbact® Ribbon Gauze

Microbe binding ribbon gauze

Reduces bioburden in cavities and fistulas

Sorbact® Ribbon Gauze is a sterile, bacteria- and fungi-binding wound dressing. It consists of a green Sorbact® wound-contact layer, which allows the passage of wound exudate into a secondary dressing. The dressing can be used in compression therapy.

Intended use

Sorbact® Ribbon Gauze is intended for use in the management of clean, contaminated, colonized or infected exuding wounds, such as cavity wounds and fistulas. Sorbact® Ribbon Gauze is also intended for use in fungal infections in skin folds.

Instructions for use

  1. Prepare the wound according to local clinical practice.
  2. Select an appropriate dressing size for the wound. The dressing can overlap the wound margins if needed.
  3. Remove the dressing from the pouch using an aseptic technique.
  4. If the dressing needs to be cut, do so by cutting across using an aseptic technique. Any opened, unused dressing should be discarded.
  5. Apply the dressing. Ensure that the dressing comes into direct contact with the entire wound surface.
  6. Line/fill the cavity or fistula. Avoid packing tightly.Always leave part of the dressing sticking out so that it can be easily removed. If the dressing needs to be cut, it is recommended that the cut end is left outside the cavity and fistula to avoid residual threads in the wound.
  7. Apply an appropriate secondary dressing.
  8. The frequency of dressing changes depends on exudate levels and the overall condition of the wound and surrounding skin. Should the clinical condition allow, the dressing can be left in place for up to 7 days.
