Accurate wound assessment is vital to give a successful resolution and uncomplicated wound healing. This is fundamental to wound management.
Wound infection is often associated with delayed wound healing and an increase in morbidity. These infections are difficult to treat, and can also add to complications and cause distress to the patient.
ActivHeal are proud to launch ActivCare Direct, a brand new Wound Dressings Prescription Dispensing Service.
In a clinical setting, the ability of a dressing to absorb vertically and retain fluid minimising fluid spread is the key to reducing the risk of periwound maceration. The fluid spread test is designed to demonstrate the performance of four commercially available, high gelling fibre dressings when challenged with high fluid volumes.
