If not appropriately managed, every wound has the potential to develop serious complications such as infection, and to become hard-to-heal (WUWHS, 2020). There is a clear need for a first-line dressing that can be used with confidence in a variety of different wound types and address potential factors that may develop and affect wound healing. As such, wound bed preparation is needed in all wounds that are expected to heal, to create conditions to optimise healing. In at-risk wounds, management of potential infection is also required.
HydroClean® is a safe and easy-to-use dressing that has been demonstrated to prepare and maintain the wound bed, reducing slough and necrosis. Its physical mechanism of action has the ability to disrupt biofilm where needed and to prevent at-risk wounds from ‘regressing’ into infection. It is important to note that HydroClean® is an easy-to-use and versatile dressing, designed as a first-line option to manage any wound that needs wound bed preparation or may be at risk of infection, instead of being reserved only for complex or hard-to-heal wounds.
