Microdacyn leads new ACC guidelines
July 31 2017
The Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) has released new clinical guidelines for the prevention of infection and wound management. The relatively high incidence of wound infection in New Zealand coupled with reduced health outcomes prompted release of the guideline.
Microdacyn Wound Care Solution and Hydrogel are recommended across the guideline including
- Acute traumatic wounds
- Chronic wounds
The benefit of Microdacyn effectively reducing biofilm, without damage to normal cells makes Microdacyn suitable for first line use from hospital through to retail pharmacy.
The majority of New Zealand DHBs now access Microdacyn, which is also available from local pharmacies.
