It has low adherence and allows the wound to drain freely into an absorbent secondary dressing. Bactigras is suitable for covering wounds such as minor burns, lacerations, abrasions, and graft sites. It contains chlorhexidine which is an active agent against a wide range of bacteria.
Cleanse the wound using standard techniques. Select the correct size of dressing and peel open the pouch (or tear the end of the roll pack). Using gloves and forceps, remove the protector paper. Lay the dressing over the wound in a single layer, in direct contact with the wound surface. Apply a secondary dressing if required and secure in place with a dressing retention bandage or dressing fixation sheet. Bactigras may be left in place when the absorbent secondary dressing is changed. The frequency of changing will depend on the clinical circumstances and this can vary from more than once per day to twice per week. If the dressing adheres, soak it gently with sterile saline solution.
