IntraSite* Gel is an amorphous hydrogel which promotes rapid but gentle debridement of necrotic tissue, whilst being able to loosen and absorb slough and exudate. It can also be used to provide the optimum moist wound healing environment during the later stages of wound healing. It is low adherent and does not harm viable tissue or the skin surrounding the wound. This makes IntraSite Gel ideal for every stage in the wound healing process. Features Partially hydrated hydrogel formulation Contains propylene glycol Applipak container, available in range of sizes Benefits IntraSite Gel's partially hydrated formulation allows the gel to donate moisture to drier environments and absorb in wetter environments, creating a moist wound healing environment. Debriding Action IntraSite Gel rehydrates necrotic tissue and, by its gentle yet effective action, promotes rapid debridement. Desloughing Action IntraSite Gel absorbs slough and exudate without damaging fragile granulation tissue. Creates a Moist Wound Healing Environment IntraSite Gel increases moisture content at the wound surface, preventing eschar formation. By keeping fragile granulation tissue moist and allowing the migration of epithelialising cells, IntraSite Gel helps to create the ideal moist wound healing environment. Gentle Action Effective yet gentle action leaves delicate granulation tissue undisturbed, reducing trauma. Low Adherent IntraSite Gel is low adherent so is easily removed from the wound by irrigation with normal saline; without damaging fragile tissue or causing unnecessary pain for the patient. Clinically Proven Extensive clinical support, suitable for use at all stages of the wound healing process. Bacteriostatic Effect IntraSiteGel contains propylene glycol which has bacteriostatic properties. In addition, propylene glycol acts as a humectant (moisturiser) which prevents the gel from drying out and improves handling. Easy to Use The unique Applipak system provides simple, directable and controlled application even in awkward wound sites. Available in Range of Sizes Range of sizes ensure 'correct' dose available for wound size - controlling and reducing wastage for cost effective treatment. Contraindications/Precautions Known sensitivity to IntraSite Gel or any of its ingredients. IntraSite Gel should be used with care in the vicinity of the eyes and in deep wounds with narrow openings (e.g. fistulas) where removal of the gel may be difficult. IntraSite Gel is for external use only and should not be taken internally
