No, you do not need special equipment, refrigeration, or mixing before application.
Once a week application/dressing changes. Duration of treatment and reapplication frequency is determined by the physician and will depend on the condition of the patient as well as the wound exudate.
Cover with an appropriate dressing to maintain matrix adherence and protect the wound area. The optimum dressing is determined by the wound location, size, depth, and volume of exudate.
No. As hypersensitivity and allergic reactions vary in severity among individuals, discretion of both the provider and patient is recommended.
The Lidocaine Lavage is the preferred wound preparation prior to use with the Collagen Matrix. Dakin’s or any other wound cleanser should not be used in conjunction with the Collagen Matrix. Our formulation purposefully contains no water (anhydrous/oils) to inhibit microbial growth. Including water-based solutions will decrease the efficacy of the Collagen Matrix.
On the contrary, it is our hope that we will have patients with radiation wounds using our products, including our Skin Protectant, to relieve the symptoms associated with such wounds.
Yes. There are no contraindications when using Omeza with NPWT. It would be advantageous to allow for adequate absorption of the products, specifically the Omeza Collagen Matrix, prior to applying the Negative Pressure dressing. Allowing at least 30 minutes for the Collagen Matrix to be absorbed would be a recommended minimum time frame. Additionally, the oils in the skin protectant may create conditions that lessen the ability of the Negative Pressure dressing to adhere properly and could potentially reduce the effectiveness of the dressing to maintain a seal.
Yes. HBOT is not a contraindication for use with any Omeza products. Since Omeza Collagen Matrix is recommended for once weekly application, our suggestion is that the products be applied at the conclusion of the last HBO treatment each week. Typically, patients undergoing hyperbaric oxygen treatments are restricted from wearing various topical skin lotions, gels, perfumes, and hair treatments (alcohol and petroleum containing products). Although Omeza products do not contain alcohol or petroleum derivatives, applying after the last HBO treatment each week will optimize the absorption of the Omeza products by the body.
Any vial of an Omeza product that has been damaged should not be used.
Yes. Many patients have multiple wounds. Using the same vial on multiple wounds on the same patient during the same visit is permissible. Do not keep the vial for use over multiple visits.
No. This is not allowable for a variety of health and safety reasons. Additionally, it is not acceptable to use one patient’s supplies or medications to treat another patient.
Due to the variable shape, irregularities, and depth of each wound, determining how much product will be sufficient for each wound may also vary. Each vial contains approximately 2 ml of product. Omeza Collagen Matrix is an amorphous solid, and transitions to a more malleable, liquid form after warming to body temperature. A single vial should cover an area that either a 3×3 or 4×4 dressing provides.
