Debridement pad made from polyester, using patented monofilament fibre technology. NICE technologies guidance (MTG17) states that the case for using this dressing on acute and chronic wounds in the community is supported by the evidence.
For removal of superficial slough and debris, including biofilm, from wounds and skin during wound bed preparation; can also be used at dressing change to aid assessment. The soft fibres, which lift, bind and remove debris, are designed to reach all uneven areas of the skin or wound bed. Suitable for chronic wounds such as leg ulcers, diabetic ulcers and pressure ulcers, acute wounds such as lacerations, cuts and abrasions, and superficial epidermal and partial-thickness burns.
Prior treatment with autolytic debridement is advised if very stubborn slough or hard necrosis is present.
