KoCarbon® is a new generation activated carbon fiber dressing clinically proven to absorb bacteria and endotoxin.

KoCarbon® Hydrophilic Wound Dressing™ is designed for chronic wounds, acute wounds, first-degree and second-degree burns. The dressing can be cut into the size of the wound. It has a three-layer structure. The first layer is PET non-woven fabric, which is a porous layer that provides a channel for exchange of air between the wound and external environment. The second layer is activated carbon fiber fabric, which is an absorption layer that rapidly absorbs blood exudate and bacteria from the wound and reduces wound odor to provide an antimicrobial environment. The third layer is PE membrane, which is also the wound contact layer. It can prevent wound adhesion and eliminate secondary injury. The low-adhesive wound contact layer effectively reduces wound adhesion and the pain from changing medication.

Direction for Use

Please follow the instructions recommended by medical professionals

Pre-treatment:

  1. Please clean or shave the hair surrounding the wound depending on its condition in order to apply the dressing.

  2. Clean the wound with normal saline.

  3. Wipe and dry the skin around the wound.


Cover the wound:

  1. Choose the size of the dressing that completely covers the wound (the dressing should have a diameter preferably 2 ~ 3 cm larger than the wound).

  2. With the black side facing the wound, apply the dressing to the wound.

  3. Use permeable tape or suitable bandage to secure the dressing to the appropriate location.

  4. For heavy exudate, use an extra layer of gauze on top of the dressing.


Remove/change dressing:

  1. Lift the dressing gently by the four corners and remove it from the wound.

  2. If adhesion forms at the wound, please rinse the wound with proper amount of normal saline.

  3. When 80% of the dressing is saturated with exudates from the wound, please change the dressing in accordance with the method described above.

Precautions
  1. If black powders are found in the package or near the wound when changing the dressing (the black powders can be cleaned with normal saline), please do not worry as this is normal for activated carbon fiber.

  2. It is normal to feel tingling when using the dressing.

  3. It is advised to change the dressing based on the condition of the exudation. To avoid risk of infection, do not re-use the product.

  4. This product is for external use only.

  5. If redness, swelling, pain, or burning sensation occurs near the wound after use, please stop using the product and consult medical professionals.

  6. If PE membrane detaches from the dressing when changing the dressing, the dressing has absorbed too much  exudate. It does not implicate a defect in the product. Please do not re-use the dressing.

  7. For third-degree burns, infectious wounds, wounds with exposed bones or tendons, or other conditions beyond the scope indicated by the original product design, please consult medical professionals to assess whether the product is appropriate for use in these wounds.
