Antimicrobial Foam Dressings
An infected wound can cause pain and discomfort for the patient, delayed wound healing can
also be life threatening1 and affect patient outcomes and quality of life. Clinical infections as
well as having serious consequences for the patient can add to the overall cost of care.1
- PHMB: A broad spectrum Antimicrobial- Fast kill rate3
- Hydrophilic, Absorbent polyurethane foam
- Low friction backing film
- Effective fluid management
- A choice of Non Adhesive or Acrylic Adhesive available in various sizes
When the clinical choice is made to initiate moist wound healing and manage infection with a foam dressing, TIELLE™ PHMB Dressings effectively manages fluid while supporting the healing process in moderate to heavily exuding wounds at risk of infection.2
