Field of application
UCS debridement is a class 2b sterile device that is recommended for use with chronic and acute wounds, ulcers of all types, pressure sores and 1st or 2nd degree burns. It acts immediately, does not inhibit granulation and is compatible with subsequent use of any type of dressing.
Why use UCS debridement?
Wound debridement at an early and appropriate stage is likely to accelerate wound healing and improve patient care. Effective debridement has been shown to be associated with reduced exudate, reduced odour and the appearance of granulation in the wound bed (Vowden & Vowden 2011).
The UCS has three specific properties that combine for effective debridement:
- It is supplied pre-moistened with an anallergic solution to soften the necrotic tissue, plaque, fibrin and slough
- The special weave of the gauze traps all debris and biofilm in its fibres
- The solution aids cleaning and hydration of the perilesional area
