Kerecis Omega3 Wound is intact decellularized fish skin that contains natural Omega3 and dermal- matrix proteins that are compatible with human tissue. Chronic wounds are stuck in an inflamed stage and fail to progress through the normal stages of healing. Kerecis Omega3 Wound effectively salvages the wound from the inflammation stage and allows for regular healing to ensue.

Kerecis is easy to apply ,simply cut the sheet so that it fits into the wound, hydrate with a saline solution (NaCl) and apply into the wound without overlapping the wound edges. Apply a secondary dressing on top of the product and ensure that the wound bed and the Kerecis Omega3 sheet are moist at all times. Be careful to ensure that the Kerecis Omega3 sheet never dries out. Re-apply every 2-7 days, or when the previously applied sheet has been absorbed and is no longer visible. Do not remove partly absorbed product from the wound.
