Biatain Fiber is an absorbent fiber dressing used to reduce exudate pooling in all exuding wounds, including highly exuding wounds, sloughy wounds, and cavity wounds, including undermining.
Biatain Fiber comes in two versions: a square variant in different sizes and a ribbon variant. Both variants can be handled in the same way.
How to open the package
Open the package with the text side facing upwards and along the turquoise line. Take the dressing out of the package using sterile gloves or sterilized tweezers.
Highly exuding wounds
Choose the size of Biatain Fiber that will cover the wound bed and edges. Cut to fit if necessary. In highly exuding and sloughy wounds, place Biatain Fiber in the wound and gently press to ensure close contact. The dressing will then conform to the wound bed and the wound edges.
Wounds with undermining
You can use the square or ribbon dressing variants for cavity wounds that include undermining. Gently fill the undermining without forcing the dressing tightly in. Apply more Biatain Fiber as needed to cover the wound bed. Make sure there are no gaps between the dressing and the wound bed. Press Biatain Fiber gently into place so that it conforms to the wound bed, as well as the wound edges.
Cover with a secondary dressing
Cover with a secondary dressing such as Biatain Silicone or compression dressing, depending on the wound condition and local practice
Up to 7 days wear time
Biatain Fiber can be left in the wound for up to seven days or until it has reached its maximum absorption capacity. When it is time for changing Biatain Fiber, start by removing the secondary dressing. Biatain Fiber can then be easily removed in one-piece thanks to the cohesive gel, with minimal risk of leaving residues in the wound. Easy one-piece removal ensures reduced discomfort and pain for your patients.
