Debriding Products

All non-viable or dead tissue must be removed from a wound before healing can progress. Necrotic tissue can promote infection as it acts as a culture medium for bacteria. Several methods of wound debridement are practised and include surgical, mechanical, conservative sharp wound debridement (CSWD) and autolytic debridement.



Surgical Debridement


Surgical debridement is a fast and effective method of removing devitalised tissue. Performed aseptically, a skilled practitioner can precisely and selectively excise necrotic tissue to minimise the risk of infection.

Autolytic Debridement


Autolytic debridement is facilitated by products that maintain a moist wound environment, promoting the break down of non-viable tissue by enzymes present in wound exudate.
