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.
- 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
- 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.
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.
