HydroClean® plus: a new perspective to wound cleansing and debridement

21/03/16 | Exudate Management, Products | Karen Ousey, Alan A Rogers, Mark G Rippon

A number of clinical studies and case reports have shown that HydroClean plus effectively cleanses wounds of necrotic tissue, fibrinous slough and bacteria-laden wound exudates. Due to the innovative technology inherent in the polyacrylate superabsorbent material at the core of these dressings, the wound is actively cleansed by the rinsing and absorbing effect of this pad core. Optimisation of the moist wound environment and promotion of autolytic debridement supports the formation of new granulation tissue and leads to progression of wound healing response. This product focus explores the evidence supporting HydroClean plus and hydro-responsive wound dressings.
