Hydrotherapy Made Easy

Rapid cleansing, early granulation and sustained epithelialisation are important requirements for efficient chronic wound healing. This Made Easy discusses HydroTherapy, an innovative approach to wound treatment where a two-step therapy harnesses optimised hydration at all stages of the healing...

Aquacel Ag+ Extra Made Easy

 While there are a number of barriers to wound healing, addressing exudate, infection and biofilm is particularly important when managing slow-healing, static or deteriorating wounds. These barriers combine to increase the chronicity of a wound and must be tackled with innovative technologies...

PHMB Made Easy

 This Made Easy focuses on the challenge of dealing with infection, and how the use of polyhexamethylene biguanide (PHMB) can help. A new mode of delivery means that PHMB can now be delivered via foam dressing, combining the benefits of a traditional foam dressing with the antimicrobial...

Soring UAW Made Easy

 Soring UAW is an effective tool for wound debridement that can be easily integrated into treatment pathways for various chronic wound aetiologies as an integral part of wound bed preparation. This Made Easy outlines this unique approach to debridement, describing how it works to protect...

Management of wound biofilm Made Easy

Biofilm research continues to grow and evolve at a rapid pace. It is clear that researchers are still trying to understand the impact of these tolerant microbial phenotypes on wounds. More data are required particularly in the testing of both old and new agents to understand the most effective...

Proteases made Easy

 The impact of proteases on wound healing has been widely accepted for some time. This Made Easy discusses how combining technologies and materials to increase product functionality will ensure better outcomes for patients, as our understanding of chronic wound pathophysiology improves. For...

BPA Made Easy

 Although the mere presence of bacteria in chronic wounds may not indicate active infection or impaired healing, there is a point at which bacteria do begin to inhibit healing, which can result in local or even systemic infection. This point of pathogenicity is when the bacteria start to...
