Normlgel Isotonic Saline Gel 15 Gram Tubes
Normlgel 0.9% Isotonic Saline Gel is a moisture donating gel that maintains an optimum environment for healing. Sold by the box of 10 tubes.
May be used in granulating and open wounds with light to moderate exudate including pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers, superficial first- and second-degree burns, lower-extremity ulcers, open surgical wounds, and wounds covered with dry fibrin.
Irrigate of flush the wound gently with normal saline or non-irritating solution, if necessary. Gently bot excess moisture with absorbent gauze.
Unscrew and remove cap and distance ring. Reapply the cap to the tube, and twist it firmly back on to break the seal of the tube.
Unscrew the cap and apply a thin coat of the gel to the wound, being careful not to apply the gel over the periwound skin.
If the wound is deep, pack it lightly with gauze impregnated with Normlgel.
Apply a cover dressing, such as Alldress or Mepilex Border. Avoid covering with gauze, because this will promote wound drying.
Change cover dressing every 48 hours or when draining is visible through the dressing.
