Wounds can be complicated - Coloplast UK

Wound management can be complicated, choosing the right solution doesn't have to be.

When you want to create optimal healing conditions for your patients wounds you need optimised solutions.

The Coloplast 3 Step Approach has been designed to remove the barriers to healing through simplification.

After assessing the patient, prepare the wound with Alprep® Pad and then choose a wound bed conforming dressing such as Biatain® SiliconeBiatain® Silicone Ag or Biatain® Fiber based on your treatment objectives.

Our advanced dressings are developed through open, ongoing conversations with end users and healthcare professionals.

The Coloplast 3 Step Approach

Assess, Prepare, Treat

Assess

Assessment is paramount in defining treatment objectives.

The Triangle of Wound Assessment is a holistic framework that allows practitioners to assess and manage all areas of the wound, including the periwound skin.

Triangle of Wound Assessment

Prepare

Wound preparation is key to remove the barriers to healing, creating an optimum healing environment

Treat

Portfolio of dressings to manage a wound of any depth and stage of healing.

Prepare the wound for treatment



Alprep® Pad is a two-in-one cleansing and debridement tool
designed for improved absorption and ease of use.

Suitable for a wide variety of wounds including non-infected wounds, infected wounds or wounds with suspected biofilm.

Wounds up to 2cm deep



Biatain® Silicone with 3DFit Technology
is a silicone foam dressing designed to reduce exudate pooling and thereby the risk of infection and maceration of the wound edges and periwound skin.

Deeper wounds as well as undermining



Biatain® Fiber with HexaLock Technology
is an absorbent gelling fiber for deeper, undermined and highly exuding wounds. Biatain Fiber supports autolytic debridement and desloughing which promotes the wound healing process.

For
Infected wounds



Biatain® Silicone Ag with 3DFit Technology
 is a silicone foam dressing with silver. Biatain Silicone Ag combats infection and biofilm where it matters. Kills 99.99% of mature biofilms (P.aeruginosa) and prevents new biofilm formation, as shown in vitro.1

Alprep Pad - Simplifying cleansing and debridement to support optimal wound preparation

Clinicians rate Alprep Pad to be an effective and convenient cleansing and debridement tool to support optimal wound bed preparation.

Prepare

Introducing Alprep Pad

Wound preparation is a crucial step in wound treatment, resulting in faster wound healing and improved patient care.

Our research tells us that clinicians currently experience key challenges with existing wound cleansing and wound debridement products such as limited functionality, low absorption and lack of usage control.

This is why we created Alprep Pad a two-in-one cleansing and debridement tool that is designed for improved absorption and ease of use.

Use Alrep Pad to cleanse and debride the wound bed, wound edge and periwound skin.


You can use both sides of Alprep Pad - it is two tools in one.

The dark grey foam is for loosening and the light grey foam is for absorbing and capturing. Loosen first or absorb first, depending on the wound.

Alprep Pad has been specially designed to be easy to use and control, giving you the flexibility to reach areas in the wound where debridement is needed.

How to use Alprep Pad

Watch the video to learn how to use Alprep Pad

Before use, always consult the ‘Instructions For Use’ document delivered with the products

1. Remove the lid and add irrigation solution to moisten the product. Alprep Pad can be used together with whatever irrigation solution you prefer or in accordance with your local practice.

2. Squeeze the product to remove excess irrigation solution. The product is moistened and ready for use.

3. Gently wipe the surface of the wound bed, the wound edge and the periwound skin with the pad.

4. When you are finished you can reuse the packing for the pad before disposing of it properly.

The product is intended for single use only and should be disposed of in accordance with local guidelines,

Alprep Pad loosens and absorbs

Two tools in one

The open structure of the dark grey foam is for loosening. The light grey softer foam is for absorbing and capturing. 

Alprep Pad is designed for improved absorbtion

Designed for improved absorption

Unique slits design increases the absorption and captures loosened slough, non-viable tissue and biofilms. 

Alprep Pad is easy and convenient to use

Easy and convenient to use

The special triangular shape makes for comfortable handling. The packaging can also be used to wet and hold the pad. 

Biatain® Silicone - conforms down to 2cm in depth*

TreatDiscover Biatain® Silicone with 3DFit Technology

With conventional foam dressings, a gap can form between the wound bed and the dressing. This allows exudate pooling, which may lead to the risk of infection, and to a delay in wound healing (2, 3, 4). Biatain Silicone is a conforming dressing with 3DFit Technology that fills the gap and reduces exudate pooling to promote optimal healing conditions.

Biatain Silicone is indicated for a wide range of low to highly exuding wounds. This includes acute wounds such as donor sites, post operative wounds and traumatic wounds; and chronic wounds such as leg ulcers, pressure ulcers and non-infected diabetic foot ulcers. It may be used to prevent post operative blistering and can also be used with compression therapy.

*Conformability may vary across product design

Biatain Fiber with HexaLock Technology for deeper, undermined and highly exuding wounds

Introducing Biatain Fiber

Biatain Fiber

Treat

Biatain Fiber with HexaLock Technology is the new gelling fiber for deeper, undermined and highly wounds.

Pooling of wound exudate can occur when exudate is not managed effectively or when the wound bed is not covered by an absorbent dressing, leading to an increased risk of bacterial growth and infection. Unmanaged exudate can also leak onto the wound edges and the periwound skin, which may cause maceration and delay wound healing.

Biatain Fiber effectively absorbs and retains exudate and bacteria, thereby reducing exudate pooling. It also keeps in shape, minimising risk of gap creation and further exudate pooling.

Biatain Fiber is indicated for use in acute and chronic wounds such as diabetic ulcers, leg ulcers (arterial ulcers, venous ulcers and leg ulcers of mixed aetiology), pressure ulcers (stage II-IV), exudate absorption in oncology wounds, traumatic wounds, partial-thickness burns, donor sites, and post-operative surgical wounds.

Biatain® Silicone Ag - for infected wounds

Treat

Discover Biatain® Silicone Ag with 3DFit Technology

The majority of infected wounds are highly exuding, creating a favourable environment for biofilms. Conventional foam dressings leave a gap between the wound bed and dressing, allowing exudate to pool.This may promote bacterial growth leading to an increased risk of infection and subsequent development of biofilms.

Biatain Silicone Ag is a conforming dressing with 3DFit Technology that fills the gap, delivers Ag at the wound bed and reduces exudate pooling to promote optimal wound healing conditions. Biatain Silicone Ag has been shown to kill 99.99% of mature biofilms (P.aeruginosa) and to prevent biofilm formation as shown in vitro.1

Usage

Biatain® Silicone Ag is indicated for a wide range of exuding wounds with delayed healing due to bacteria, or where there is a risk for infection, including leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, second degree burns, donor sites, postoperative wounds and traumatic wounds (e.g. skin abrasions, skin tears, cuts). Can be used with compression therapy.

*Conformability may vary across product design


The benefits of Biatain Silicone Ag with 3DFit Technology

Absorbs vertically

The microcapillaries within the foam absorb exudate vertically, triggering the release of Ag.

Conforms to the wound bed

Biatain Silicone Ag conforms to the wound bed to reduce exudate pooling and deliver Ag at the wound bed.

Retains exudate

Exudate is locked away and retained even under compression, reducing the risk of maceration and spreading of infection to the wound edges and periwound skin.

Kills 99.99% of mature biofilms

Biatain Silicone Ag has been shown to kill 99.99% of mature biofilms (P. aeruginosa) and to prevent biofilm formation (shown in vitro). Biatain Silicone Ag is also effective against a broad spectrum of bacteria and fungi for up to 7 days.1
