In a chronic or deteriorating wound, there are barriers and factors that delay timely wound healing, which combined encourage microbial proliferation, microbial attachment and biofilm formation.

This Made Easy focuses on UrgoClean Ag: a dressing that combines the cleaning and desloughing action of polyabsorbent fibres with antimicrobial ionic silver, which can be used for locally infected, and ‘at risk’ acute and chronic wounds.
