DuoDERM Signal, a Tapered Edge CGF (Controlled Gel Formulation) dressing, is an adhesive bordered (hydrocolloid) wound dressing. The dressing is tapered to be thinner at the edges than at the centre so the incidence of rolling up during use is reduced. The hydrocolloids are contained within the dressing mass. The adhesive layer contains polymers which enhance the dressings ability to contain wound exudate by forming a cohesive gel. An indicator line on the dressing helps to determine when to change the dressing. The wound fluid appears as a bubble moving toward the indicator line.
