How to use NuShield1

NuShield is a human allograft tissue that is regulated as a Human Cells, Tissues, and Cellular and Tissue-Based Product (HCT/P) as defined by FDA 21 CFR Part 1271.

Preparation of the wound

  1. Ensure that the wound is free of infection
  2. Proper debridement of the wound should be performed and should extend to healthy, viable bleeding tissue
  3. Hemostasis should be achieved and heavy exudate controlled

NuShield application

  1. Gently remove NuShield from its sterile packaging using aseptic technique, being careful to maintain the sterility of the product
  2. Determine which side of NuShield is the chorion side (to be placed in contact with the wound bed). When the middle notch is at the top, and the notched corner is to its right, then the upper side is epithelial and the side facing down is chorion
  3. Place NuShield onto the wound bed, being careful to preserve orientation of the product and ensuring that the chorion side is in contact with the wound bed*
*Once NuShield is placed, the product may be rehydrated as necessary, based on the characteristics of the wound. (NuShield is easier to manipulate prior to rehydration.)

Dressings and re-application schedule

  1. Anchor NuShield using preferred fixation method, such as sutures or adhesive strips
  2. Apply a non-adherent, non-occlusive primary dressing directly over NuShield
  3. Apply a secondary dressing specific to the wound type
  4. Offload or compress appropriately based on wound type
