OASIS® Matrix products: Simple to store, simple to handle

Simple to apply

1

Prepare and debride the wound bed to ensure it is free of exudate and devitalized tissue.

2

Select the form of OASIS Matrix you prefer and choose the appropriate size.

3

Apply non-adhesive dressing.

4

Secure the sheet with bandages (OASIS Wound Matrix and ULTRA), sutures, or staples (OASIS ULTRA Tri-Layer Matrix).

OASIS ULTRA Tri-Layer Matrix is thicker than OASIS Wound Matrix, can be sutured or stapled, and may be more appropriate for deeper wounds.

5

Hydrate OASIS Matrix with sterile saline or with a hydrogel.

6

Cover with appropriate dressing for moisture management.

7

If appropriate, use a compression wrap (VLU); or boot, cast, or offloading device (DFU).

8

Leave in place (typically 1 week for OASIS Wound Matrix; typically 7-14 days for OASIS ULTRA Tri-Layer Matrix) or change outer dressing as drainage dictates.

9

Reapply OASIS Matrix as needed.

Successful application may result in caramel-colored or off-white gel

  • If a caramel-colored or off-white gel (termed caramelization) forms on the surface, do not remove this gel by debriding.
    • This caramelization contains building ECM components, which continues to replace deficient and missing ECM in the wound
  • Gently cleanse the wound surface with sterile saline, then apply new OASIS Matrix if necessary
