I am not real familar with dealing with wounds. I have a patient with a full thickness skin tear. The doctor has ordered Multidex powder. I've looked on the net, some places say change it daily, some say change it one a week. Also what will I expect to see when I next take the dressing off? Will there be Multidex left to remove (as a gel) or is it better to just leave it alone and redress? Thanks for helping ;)

i'm new to wound care but the manufacture states to clean the wound with saline, apply over the whole wound, and cover with a nonadherent dressing. the company doesn't state how long the dressing should stay in place.
