After filling up at the petrol pump en route to a busy surgery schedule, we’re confident you would never drive off with the fuel cap rolling off the roof of your car! The same risk–avoidance, duty-of-care principle applies when dealing with infection control in wound dressing.
Providing an optimum environment for wound healing while protecting open or treated wounds from the risk of infection is a crucial component of patient treatment that no clinician can afford to gloss over. As such, advanced wound care is the proverbial dress rehearsal to ensure that infections and complications are prevented, scarring is minimised, and a healthy healing process is set in motion.
Bactinet chlorhexidine gauze dressing – exclusively available from Instrumental Healthcare – is a sterile, efficient and flexible wound dressing solution in the treatment of minor lacerations, burns, and graft sites.
Why use Bactinet?
Minimising the risk of infection – or managing prior infection – are top priorities for clinicians when treating a wounded patient. Applying Bactinet to damaged skin provides a protective layer to soothe and protect the wound while promoting efficient re-epithelialization. Clinical research studies have shown Bactinet to be effective against a broad scope of both gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria, including Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
The advantage of stocking Bactinet is that it comes in rolls making it a practical solution for applying to large wound areas and mitigating having to open multiple packs.
Key Product Benefits
- Bactinet contains 0.5% of chlorhexidine Acetate, decreasing the risk of colonisation.
- Bactinet is designed as interlocking gauze yard threads to reduce instances of fraying when the wound dressing is cut into specific sizes.
- Bactinet’s antiseptic efficacy is not affected by the presence of serum and blood.
- The application of Bactinet still allows for the free flow of exudate to the wound.
- Bactinet can also be used in conjunction with MEEK micrografting.
