Hydrofera Blue Wound Care Benefits
Management of bioburden, removal of devitalized tissue and maintaining moisture balance is important for successful wound management. Hydrofera Blue Antibacterial dressings provide all these in a single dressing.
- Bioburden Management: Two well-known organic pigments, gentian violet and methylene blue offer broad-spectrum antibacterial protection.
- Autolytic Debridement: Use of Hydrofera dressings promotes autolytic debridement.
- Moisture Management: PVA micro-pore foam structure absorbs and retains fluid. It becomes soft and flexible when moistened and maintains absorbency similar to other highly absorptive dressings.
- Edge Effect: This dressing assists in the resolution of epibole or flattening of wound edges.
