MPD Protocol for Skin Tears

Applying Miracle Professional Dressing (MPD)

Skin tears and ecchymoses (bruises) are the result of trauma, even slight, in elderly, thin and fragile skinned people. The healing is slow. Because each wound weakens the area further, it is commonly the site of repeated injuries.

Miracle Dressing is an FDA Class I medical device which has been shown to help heal skin tears and bruises (ecchymoses / purpura). It is designed to stay in place for about three weeks and then fall off on its own. Miracle Dressing rarely needs to be removed prematurely, but if needed use rubbing alcohol.

MPD Application

  1. Clean the wound and surrounding skin with hydrogen peroxide or soap and water followed by rinsing with non-sterile water.
  2. Re-orient any flaps of skin over its corresponding wound bed using Q-Tips immersed in hydrogen peroxide.
  3. Blot dry.
  4. Peel off MPD backing
  5. Place the MPD over the wound and surrounding skin when the skin is in its fully stretched position.
    Massage down the edges.
  6. Leave the MPD in place until it falls off (typically about 21 days). To remove the dressing earlier than the suggested time period, use isopropyl alcohol.

MPD Maintenance

  1. Once or twice a day, rinse the Miracle Dressing with tap water (shower, saturated gauze or wash cloth compresses). MPD is impregnated with Natural Marine Extract but should you desire additional healing. After rinsing with water, blot the Miracle Dressing dry and then: Apply Miracle of The Sea Natural Marine Extract in Aloe Vera Gel – or your favorite humectant - after every water rinse or at least twice a day. Using a cotton tipped swab, spread a small amount of Aloe Vera Gel / humectant onto the Miracle Dressing and allow it to be absorbed into the wound and the surrounding skin through the Miracle Dressing.
  2. A damp absorbent pad or gauze can be placed over the Miracle Dressing to collect excessive oozing. The drying action of this gauze will pull excess exudate away from the wound. If the wound is only oozing slightly, apply dry gauze only when needed to protect clothing or bedsheets.
  3. If you are also applying an antibiotic ointment, use only after the Aloe Vera Gel / humectant. Please use this sparingly so as not to clog the Miracle Dressing’s pores. Use 1/8 of pea size – and only over the wound area.
  4. Miracle Dressing rarely needs to be removed prematurely . If you feel you must remove, soak the Miracle Dressing with isopropyl alcohol. You don’t have to dose it, just pour it on. After it soaks for one minute, remove it very slowly, starting from the edges, applying more isopropyl alcohol.
