Estimate the appropriate amount of Collagenase SANTYL Ointment to prescribe

This useful calculator will help estimate the number of grams needed for therapy and the amount of SANTYL Ointment to apply per application. Enter the wound size along with the duration of treatment to get your calculated answers.

Not intended to supersede independent clinical judgment or institutional protocols. Please note that the estimates are only intended as a guide, contain rounded values where appropriate, and assume a constant wound size throughout the treatment period. Therefore, you should adjust these estimates based upon your own clinical experience and individual wound characteristics.

Estimate the appropriate amount of SANTYL Ointment 250 units/g to prescribe to help achieve wound debridement:

Depending on whether a 30-gram or 90-gram tube of SANTYL Ointment is used, the proper length of ointment needed for wound debridement will differ. Not intended to supersede independent clinical judgment or institutional protocols.

30-gram tube formula: Estimated length of SO needed from 30-g tube
= Wound area x nickel depth x SO density x approx. length of 1 g of SO
= (X cm2) x (0.2 cm) x (0.85 g/cm3) x (3.04 cm/g) =

90-gram tube formula: Estimated length of SO needed from 90-g tube
= Wound area x nickel depth x SO density x approx. length of 1 g of SO
= (X cm2) x (0.2 cm) x (0.85 g/cm3) x (1.78 cm/g) =

Collagenase SANTYL Ointment is indicated for debriding chronic dermal ulcers and severely burned areas.

Occasional slight transient erythema has been noted in surrounding tissue when applied outside the wound. One case of systemic hypersensitivity has been reported after 1 year of treatment with collagenase and cortisone. Use of Collagenase SANTYL Ointment should be terminated when debridement is complete and granulation tissue is well established.
