Cutimed Sorbact Ribbon Gauze
Cutimed® Sorbact® - the newest innovative approach in antimicrobial wound care therapy from BSN Medical, uses a unique antimicrobial concept that works without a chemically active agent
Cutimed® Sorbact® by BSN Medical is one of the newest and most innovative approaches to antimicrobial wound care therapy. Using a unique antimicrobial concept that works without a chemically active agent, Cutimed® Sorbact’s® effectiveness is based on the powerful physical principle of hydrophobic interaction to cleanse colonized, contaminated and infected wounds.
The Cutimed® Sorbact® ribbon gauze is used to fill wound cavities and fistulae or wound pockets so that it has direct contact with the wound bacteria, and is fixed with a secondary primary dressing. The gauze’s special coating creates a strong water-repellent property which helps to inactivate and physically bind wound bacteria to the dressing itself. With each dressing change the bound bacteria are removed and expelled from the wound, eliminating one of the principle barriers to wound healing. Indications for use include:
- Chronic wounds such as venous leg, arterial, diabetic and pressure ulcers
- Acute wounds such as postoperative and dehisced wounds, traumatic wounds and post-excision of fistulas or abscess wounds
- Ideal for deep cavity wounds and exudate management of low to highly exuding wounds
- Suitable for fungal infection in the groin, skin folds or between toes
Cutimed® Sorbact® is effective against all wound pathogens including MRSA and VRE, and may be combined with secondary dressings or ABD pads for additional exudate absorption, or with any of the other Cutimed® Sorbact® family of products for optimal healing.
