Features

Smith & Nephew Iodosorb Gel

  • A sterile formulation of Cadexomer Iodine
  • Great for diabetic ulcers, pressure sores and infected wounds
  • Inhibits bacterial growth as it absorbs exudate
  • Triple action kills bacteria, manages exudate and debrides the wound

Product Overview

Smith & Nephew Iodosorb Gel

Iodosorb Cadexomer Iodine Gel


Iodosorb Gel is the only wound gel that inhibits bacterial growth as it absorbs exudate. Specially formulated for use on wet, exudating ulcers, diabetic and venous ulcers, pressure sores and infected wounds. As absorption occurs, the cadexomer releases iodine, which reduces the bacterial load without affecting granulating tissue.

As the gel absorbs exudate, iodine is released, killing bacteria and changing color as the iodine is used up.

Benefits

  • Helps promote wound healing
  • Exudate and debris is removed effectively
  • IODOSORB helps to promote a clean wound healing environment
  • A change in color (white) indicates when IODOSORB should be changed
  • Gel formed over the wound promotes moist healing
  • Accelerated healing rates can lead to earlier patient discharges

Patient comfort

  • IODOSORB Gel assists in reducing bacterial load, associated pain is reduced which can improve quality of life.
  • IODOSORB is a non-adhesive which can reduce trauma when product is changed encouraging patient compliance.

Precautions

As IODOSORB Gel contains 0.9% w/w iodine it should not be used in patients with known or suspected Iodine sensitivity. IODOSORB Gel is contraindicated in Hashimoto's Thyroiditis.

In patients with a prior history of Graves Disease it is not recommended to use iodine containing products, which includes IODOSORB Gel.

The gel should not be used in the case of non-toxic nodular goitre. Patients with a past history of any thyroid disorder are more susceptible to alteration in thyroid metabolism with chronic IODOSORB therapy.

Iodine is absorbed systemically especially when large wounds are treated.

In endemic goitre there has been isolated reports of hyperthyroidism associated with IODOSORB.

There is a potential for interaction of iodine with the following drugs and therefore co-administration is not recommended, Lithium, Sulphafurazoles and Sulphonylureas.

It has been observed occasionally that an adherent crust can form when the dressing is not changed with significant frequency.

Iodine can cross the placental barrier and is secreted into milk. Do not use IODOSORB in pregnant or lactating women.

Answer:
I put a good-sized blob of it on non-stick sterile dressing, and plop it over the wound. I try not to disturb it for two days or so -- it turns white, then repeat as needed. It really helps keep the exudate down, and the skin will scab over nicely with it.

Answer:
The only way you wouldn't put a dressing on would be if the area is covered with skin or scab and you are just trying to prevent reinfection. But then you run the risk of staining your clothes. Because it is to prevent/treat infections, covering it is the best thing to do. Either let the iodoform dry on the skin then put on a telfa, or (if the wound is moist), put the iodoform on the telfa itself, then apply.

Answer:
It would have to be covered with a bandage to keep it from coming off. Use skin prep or benzoin on the skin to help the bandage stick better and avoiding ripping the sin off with the bandage.If you have trouble soiling the bandage, I would recommend tegaderm, or a generic tegaderm. - This is the bandage that looks like it is just saran wrap, but it sticks well. The directions say don't put any medicine under the tegaderm, but if you let the iodoform dry before putting on the tegaderm, it will work well.

Answer:
My wound care doctor put the gel on the absorbent bandage and then applied it to the wound. He and his staff directed me to do the same since the wound itself is often very moist and the gel won't stay where placed.

Answer:
You can put the iodoform directly on the wound if the wound is very dry. Wait for the iodoform to dry completely, then cover with a bandage.
