A new combination ingredient foam to fight chronic wound infection.
Chronic non-healing wounds represent a problem for clinicians. Opened chronic wound are exposed to constant bacterial and fungal infection. Research shows estimating that up to 80% of wounds contain fungi and form mixed fungal-bacterial biofilms, this will delay wound heal causing significant morbidity and mortality especially in elderly, diabetic, and obese populations.
RTD® Wound Dressing is a proprietary highly absorbent antimicrobial polyurethane foam with integrated:
Silver Zirconium Phosphate (Non-cytotoxicand)
Surfactant integrated into the foam polymer matrix.
The combination of methylene blue, gentian violet and silver plus singlet oxygen (derived from methylene blue) exerts a synergistic and powerful microbial killing for both fungi and bacteria. The presence of foam capillary suction helps in exudate management, pulls liquefied biofilm and bacteria from wound bed in a wet infected wound.
