Eclypse Boot is a super absorbent dressing, anatomically designed to be applied securely to the lower limb area to manage wound exudate.
The dressing has a rapid wicking face combined with the highly absorbent moisture locking system. The absorbent layer provides a large capacity with rapid fluid uptake uptake forming a gel on contact with exudate. The backing is a water resistant barrier film to prevent strike-through with a high moisture vapour transfer rate prolonging wear ability.
Open out the dressing fully, white side up placing the heel onto the small triangle, the top of the triangle pointing towards the patient. Fold over the foot one at a time the smaller sections to the left and right and secure with tape. Fold both the larger sections one at a time around the leg also securing with tape. Eclypse Boot can be used under compression bandaging.
Wear time will depend on the level of exudate, daily changes may be required, but Eclypse Boot can be left in place for up to seven days. Do not cut through the super absorbent pockets on Eclypse Boot.
Eclypse® Boot is a single use product. If used on more than one patient, cross-contamination or infection may result. Opening the dressing pack compromises the sterile barrier. Any unused dressings should be discarded.
Eclypse dressings should not be cut across the absorbent pockets, however Eclypse Boot can be cut along the welded seams to fit a shorter leg/area.
Moderate to heavily exuding wounds: Leg ulcers, superficial wounds, pressure ulcers, arterial ulcers, leaky legs, diabetic ulcers and Lymphoedema.
Eclypse® can be used as a Primary dressing on wounds where exudate management is required in a clean wound. Eclypse® can also be used as a Secondary dressing for exudate management where another primary dressing has been applied for treatment of the wound bed e.g. Collagen, Manuka Honey or Alginate.
Do not use on arterial bleeds or heavily bleeding wounds. Do not cut the absorbent pockets on the Eclypse Boot dressing.
