  • 1) Disinfect Fistula Funnel per your institutional protocol. Do not autoclave.  Cut Fistula Funnel to length to best fit wound depth and size. Trim base skirt and bottom flange to best fit fistula or wound bed surface.  To create isolation area diameters of:  
  • ​​       1 cm - cut at base flange
  •        2 cm - cut at center flange
  • ​       3 cm - use top opening
  • 2) Cut 1 inch (2.5 cm) hole in wound dressing that will center Fistula Funnel over fistula or wound. 
  • 3) Insert Fistula Funnel fully into hole until top flange is seated on top of wound dressing. Ensure bottom flange is flush with bottom of wound dressing and base skirt extends below wound dressing. 
  • 4) Prepare wound bed. Place assembled Fistula Funnel and dressing onto wound bed so that Fistula Funnel base is centered over fistula or wound.  

5) Seal entire dressing assembly with clear drape. Cut drape from inner ring. If seal is lost, try stoma paste inside Fistula Funnel base. Apply collection appliance to top flange.
