Iodosorb Information:

Iodosorb is used for the treatment of chronic exuding wounds such as leg ulcers, pressure ulcers and diabetic ulcers, particularly when infection is present or suspected.

This product contains iodine (0.9% w/w) and should not be used in patients with a prior history of thyroid disorders, with known or suspected iodine sensitivity, nor by pregnant or nursing women.

Iodosorb* ointment and Iodosorb* powder are sterile formulations of Cadexomer Iodine. When applied to the wound, it cleans it by absorbing fluids, removing pus and debris and forming a gel over the wound surface. As Iodosorb swells, iodine is released, killing bacteria and changing colour.

Iodosorb ointment contains 50% cadexomer iodine and 50% ointment base (incorporating Polyethylene glycol 400 BP, Polyethylene glycol 4000 USP and Poloxamer USP).
Iodosorb powder contains 100% cadexomer iodine powder Helps Promote Wound Healing

Pus and debris is removed effectively.
Iodosorb helps to promote a clean wound healing environment.
A change in colour indicates when Iodosorb should be changed.
Gel formed over the wound can help to facilitate moist healing.
Patient comfort Iodosorb powder and Iodosorb ointment treat infection, which can reduce pain and improve quality of life. Iodosorb is non-adhesive which can reduce trauma when the product is removed and encourage patient compliance.

Fewer Dressing Changes
Cadexomer iodine powder can absorb up to 6 times its weight in fluid. Range of sizes to suit most wounds.

Iodosorb Side Effects:

Iodosorb Directions:

A layer of Iodosorb beads approximately 3 mm thick, is applied to the wound and covered with a suitable pad or dressing retention material held in place with tape or a bandage as appropriate. Removal is best accomplished by irrigating the wound with sterile water or normal saline, using a syringe. Once the wound has been cleansed, a new layer of beads is applied while the area is still moist.

Iodosorb Precautions:

Iodine is absorbed systemically especially when applied to large wounds and therefore Iodosorb should be used with care on patients who have a history of thyroid disorders. Iodosorb should not be used on children and as iodine can cross the placental barrier and is secreted into milk Iodosorb should not be applied to pregnant women or lactating mothers. There is a potential interaction of iodine with lithium and therefore co-administration is not recommended. Iodosorb should not be used concomitantly with mercurial antiseptics, e.g. mercurochrome and thiomersal, or taurolidine. A single application should not exceed 50 grams, and not more than 150 grams of Iodosorb should be applied during the course of one week. A single course of treatment with Iodosorb should not exceed 3 months. Iodosorb should not be used on dry wounds.
