Inadine Dressing consists of a low adherent knitted viscose fabric impregnated with a polyethylene glycol (PEG) base containing 10% Povidone Iodine; equivalent to 1.0% available iodine. Inadine dressings are designed to protect the wound, even if infected. Inadine is indicated for the management of ulcerative wounds and may also be used for the prevention of infection in minor burns and minor traumatic skin loss injuries. The Povidone molecule provides an effective release of iodine. The polyethyleneglycol provides a water-soluble environment, which allows the Iodine to reach the bacteria in the wound.
Features: Broad spectrum activity for leg ulcers, burns and minor traumatic injuries, even if infected. Sustained release with povidone iodine. Gentle application, easy to remove. Free from acquired and cross resistance. Colour change indicates when dressing needs changing.
Directions: The frequency of dressing changes depends primarily upon the condition of the wound. If large quantities of exudate are produced, daily changes will probably be required; but if the wound is relatively dry, the interval between changes may be extended. Fading of the colour of the dressing indicates the loss of antiseptic efficacy and this is when the Inadine dressing should be changed.
Warnings. If irritation occurs, remove immediately.
Ingredients: Inadine dressing is a topical wound dressing impregnated with an ointment containing 10% povidone iodine (PVP-I). The dressing also contains polyethylene glycol and purified water as inactive ingredients.
