Wound Cleansers

Wound cleansers are solutions used to remove contaminants, foreign debris and exudate from the wound surface or to irrigate a deep cavity wound. Ingredients may include surfactants, wetting agents, moisturizers and/or antimicrobials. They may be a rinse or no-rinse formula.

Wound cleansers feature the following general performance properties and attributes:
• Removes bacteria and debris without disrupting the wound bed
• Reduces wound odor
• Reduces risk of wound infection

Wound cleansers are indicated for cleansing, irrigating, hydrating, debridement and removal of foreign material including microorganisms and debris from exudating wounds or acute and chronic dermal lesions such as: stage I-IV pressure ulcers, venous insufficiency ulcers, post-surgical wounds, first- and second-degree burns, diabetic foot ulcers, skin grafts and donor sites, abrasions or minor irritations of the skin.

Wound cleansers can be indicated for use at each dressing change or as a solution placed in a device that accomplishes irrigation and debridement. They can also be used to moisten or lubricate absorbent wound dressings prior to dressing change or removal.

Wound cleansers are contraindicated for patients with a known sensitivity to any of the cleanser’s ingredients. Always refer to manufacturer Instructions For Use.

For external use only.
