Microdacyn Leads The Way In New International Guidelines

Microdacyn Leads The Way In New International Guidelines

January 15 2017

Microdacyn wound care solution has been included in the new International Wound Infection Institute (IWII) clinical practice Guidelines.

 

The IWII is a multidisciplinary international group of experts dedicated to sharing the latest developments in wound infection and infection prevention. The guidelines have a focus on biofilm and wound infection.

 

Microdacyn is newly included as the only wound cleansing agent to rapidly penetrate and kill biofilm from within.

 

The ability to penetrate and kill biofilm is significant given the growing understanding of biofilm as a major driver of non-healing wounds.  In addition older and common wound cleansing agents have demonstrated limited or no effect in reducing bacterial or fungal biofilm.

 

In addition to chronic wounds the use of Microdacyn is recommended to prevent wound infection in higher risk people including:
  • The elderly
  • People with diabetes, immune disorders or Cardiovascular disease

 

and in higher risk wounds:

  • Dirty/contaminated wounds
  • Trauma with delayed treatment
  • Appropriate hair removal not possible

 

Despite previous use in Australia and New Zealand products containing hydrogen peroxide are no longer recommended for use. Hydrogen peroxide antiseptic products have a high risk of tissue damage and should only be used where no other product is available.
