HEXATULLE acts as a barrier between the wound and a secondary dressing, allowing exudate to pass into the absorbent secondary dressing. The Chlorhexidine acetate antiseptic is slowly released from the dressing, giving long lasting action against Gram (+) positive and Gram-negative (-) bacteria
HEXATULLE is for use as a topical treatment only. It is indicated for a wide range of wounds where there is a risk of infection, or on already infected wounds in conjunction with systemic antibiotics. The range of wounds on which
HEXATULLE May be used include:
- Minor burns and scalds.
- Lacerations, abrasions and other skin loss wounds.
- Donor and recipient graft sites.
- Leg ulcers.
- Do not use on more than 15% of the body area wounds for adults.
- Do not use on more than 10% of the body area wounds for children.
- Do not use in known cases of sensitivity or allergy to Chlorhexidine.
Dermatitis, contact sensitivity or Photo-sensitivity may rarely occur. Anaphylactic reaction to Chlorhexidine has been reported, but is rare. Avoid contact with eyes, the middle ear, meninges and brain. HEXATULLE is incompatible with soaps, other anionic materials, as well as potassium iodide. The use of HEXATULLE with oxidizing wound cleansing agents should be avoided. HEXATULLE is a single use only product. If used on more than one patient, cross-contamination or infection may result. Opening the dressing pack compromises the sterile barrier therefore any unused dressing should not be retained for application later.
- Cleanse the wound using standard techniques.
- Select the correct size dressing and peel open the pouch (or tear end from roll pack).
- Using gloves and forceps, remove protector papers.
- Lay over wound in a single layer in direct contact with the wound surface.
- Apply a secondary absorbent dressing if required and secure in place with a dressing retention bandage or dressing fixation sheet.
- Removal: HEXATULLE may be left in place when the absorbent secondary dressing is changed. The frequency of changing will depend on the clinical circumstances and this can vary from more than once a day to twice per week.
- If the dressing sticks soak it off gently with sterile saline solution.
