Product Overview

The Convatec CarboFLEX Odor Control Dressing is applied as a primary or secondary dressing to control malodorous wounds. Its five-layer construction effectively absorbs wound exudate, creates a moist wound interface, and above all, absorbs and traps unpleasant smells. From malodorous acute to chronic wound types, this dressing's odor-control charcoal material minimizes the smell of wounds while it heals. Infected wounds may also utilize the dressing in conjunction with antibiotic therapy and should be monitored frequently.

What Causes Unpleasant-Smelling Wounds

Malodorous wounds indicate bacterial colonization and/or necrotic tissue is present. The breakdown of tissue releases gas compounds that cause the unpleasant smell. 1 CarboFLEX non-adherent dressing is designed to mitigate smells. Its advanced double-knit layer contains activated charcoal with the job of absorbing unpleasant-smelling molecules. The Alginate Hydrofiber layer quickly takes in exudate and turns to a soft gel. The adjacent layer containing the activated carbon molecules grabs the gas compounds and traps them into the dressing.

 

How Activated Charcoal Works

 

How To Use CarboFLEX Gauze Dressing

Use CarboFLEX as a primary dressing for shallow wounds or on deeper wounds as a secondary dressing. Deeper wounds may require a cavity filler before application of CarboFLEX. For wounds with very large amounts of wound exudate, apply a foam dressing as the primary and then pair with CarboFLEX as a secondary dressing.

How To Apply and Remove

Wound Preparation

Carefully cleanse the wound using sterile saline and then pat dry the surrounding peri-wound.

Application

Select the size of CarboFlex Dressing that's large enough to overlap the edges of the wound by an inch. Make sure to apply the fibrous non-shiny side down over the wound. Secure with medical adhesive tape or with a bandage.

Removal

  • An infected wound should be inspected frequently. Change the dressing if there is visible strikethrough from exudate or odor is no longer being absorbed.
  • Noninfected wounds may be left undisturbed for up to three days.
  • Carefully lift the dressing at the corner and gently remove it.
