- Moisture and bacterial management are commonly noted as key elements in preparing a wound bed for healing.
- A moist environment helps to speed healing and promotes growth of new tissue. Wound exudate is protein and cell rich fluid that is a source of neutrophils and macrophages that are designed to promote healing.
- Most wounds are contaminated with some level of bacteria, which may not directly inhibit healing. However, when bacteria begin to replicate and form colonies, they may overwhelm the host defense which could potentially lead to delayed healing and infection.
- No known resistance, commonly used for over 75 years
