Spray Microdacyn Wound Care Solution directly into the wound to the point of saturation. Be sure to use a bottle opened within the last 60 days
If you're unsure, use a fresh bottle.
Microdacyn is non-cytotoxic to healing tissue allowing it to be used safely in excess.
Thoroughly applying Microdacyn will ensure it works to its full effect.
Microdacyn significantly reduces the bacterial burden within 30 seconds of contact
Saturate a gauze or bandage in Microdacyn Wound Care Solution to use it as a sterile wipe for cleaning around and within the wound.
Apply a Microdacyn Wound Care Solution compress soak as required for 5-10 minutes.
This will cause an initial disruption of any mature or forming biofilm and aid in desloughing.
For difficult wounds, this may be repeated as often as required to achieve a clean wound bed.
Continue to flush away debris and reduce bacterial burden on freshly presented tissue with Microdacyn Wound Care Solution as you debride and prepare the wound bed for dressing.
There is no maximum volume or frequency Microdacyn that can be used to flush the wound in order to try and achieve infection clearance.
Clinical studies have even noted using copious Microdacyn flushes several times a day to clear infection in patients with Multi-Drug Resistant infections and/or are contraindicated to antibiotics.
Is biofilm-based wound care required?
Biofilm cannot be directly visualised in a wound. The experienced clinician may suspect biofilm is present through observation of indicative wound characteristics
Criteria indicative of potential biofilm - International Wound Infection Institute Guidelines 2016
Failure of appropriate antibiotic treatment
Recalcitrance to appropriate antimicrobial treatment
Recurrence of delayed healing on cessation of antibiotic treatment
Delayed healing despite optimal wound management and health support
Low-level chronic inflammation
Poor granulation/friable hyper granulation
Secondary signs of infection
Biofilm: a structured community of microbes with genetic diversity and variable gene expression (phenotype) that creates behaviors and defenses used to produce unique infections (chronic infection). Biofilms are characterized by significant tolerance to antibiotics and biocides while remaining protected from host immunity.
