An effective secondary dressing
Cinesteam® is a non-adhesive secondary dressing designed to eliminate unpleasant odours and absorb exudates. It consists of an absorbent layer together with a sachet containing cinnamon. Cinnamon adsorbs unpleasant-smelling volatile compounds emanating from the wound and masks residual odours with the spice natural fragrance. Cinesteam® components allow the passage of air and moisture to prevent maceration. The cinnamon powder used in the Cinesteam® dressing was selected from several varieties for its specific olfactory & adsorption properties after multiple sensory perception tests and chemical analysis.
Indications : Cinesteam® is a secondary dressing indicated for the management of malodorous wounds (e.g. malignant wounds, infected bedsores and leg ulcers).
Cinesteam® should not be used on patients with known sensitivity to any of its components, in particular cinnamon.
Instructions for use: Cinesteam® should be applied on top of an appropriate primary dressing (it is not intended to be in direct contact with the wound). The absorbent layer (white surface) should be applied facing the wound, over the primary dressing. Application 1. Select the size of Cinesteam® that covers the primary dressing. If necessary, more than one dressing may be used. 2. Remove Cinesteam® from its primary packaging and apply it directly onto the primary dressing. 3. Keep Cinesteam® in place with any suitable medical material. How long can Cinesteam be left in place? Cinesteam® can be left in place as long as its absorption and odour masking capacities are satisfactory. As a precaution, it is recommended not to leave it in place for more than 24 hours. To remove Cinesteam®, gently peel it off.

Orientis vero limes in longum protentus et rectum ab Euphratis fluminis ripis ad usque supercilia porrigitur Nili, laeva Saracenis conterminans gentibus, dextra pelagi fragoribus patens, quam plagam Nicator Seleucus occupatam auxit magnum in modum, cum post Alexandri Macedonis obitum successorio iure teneret regna Persidis, efficaciae inpetrabilis rex, ut indicat cognomentum.
