Applying the rinsing solution mechanically removes any secretion, biofilm, necrotic tissue and toxins present on the wound’s surface. This decontaminates the wound, thus reducing the microbial population, which shortens the healing time. Rinsing a wound promotes blood circulation to the wound bed and subsequent granulation and epithelialization.
Innovatively varied uses - the product can be connected with a Luer Lock adapter to a flow reduction needle or connected to a threaded syringe that can be easily filled with the solution.
You can find an illustrative example the different ways to use Neocide solution for rinsing wounds here.
Rinsing acute wounds. Squeezing the bag forms a stream of rinsing solution, which is directed to the desired location. The stream of fluid washes away any impurities in the wound mechanically until the area to be treated is cleaned.
Treating chronic woulds. The biofilm is removed (so-called debridement) by pressing the container so as to create a stream of rinsing solution, which is directed to the desired location. The stream of fluid washes away any impurities in the wound mechanically until the area to be treated is cleaned. In these cases, patients are often sensitive to temperature, the solution can be warmed to body temperature. Long-term use of the product should be under medical supervision.
When applied to cavities in the wound, it is always necessary to ensure the solution has an outflow by means of drainage or another suitable manner.
Cleaning around the wound. It is important to clean around the wound to minimize the risk of the wound being contaminated from its surroundings. The solution stream is directed so that the area around the wound is thoroughly cleaned. At the same time, it is necessary to ensure that the solution drains away from the wound area.
Moisturizing dried on wound dressings. If the wound dressings have dried to the would, it is recommended to moisten the dressing material with a wound rinsing solution so that the dried exudates moisten and loosen so that the dressings can be removed gently and without traumatizing the wound surfaces.
Moistening wounds.This is done by applying the solution once or repeatedly to the desired area. If appropriate, it is possible to infuse the covering material with the solution and thus moisten the desired area.
