A major problem in healing wounds associated with high bacterial loads is tissue damage due to the release of toxins and enzymes and the possible spread of infections to the blood stream. Studies have also shown that high tissue counts of micro-organisms, as well as dry wounds, can delay wound healing.
To overcome this problem, a wound dressing with a bacterial-adsorbing composition and moisture-holding system has been developed by Abigo Medical. The product is said to be ideal for the treatment of drier wounds, according to the company of Askim, Gothenburg, Sweden.
