Slough

Slough and soft necrotic tissue impedes naural healing1,2

  • Non-viable necrotic or compromised tissue/ adherent fibrous material derived from proteins, fibrin and fibrinogen – usually moist, creamy yellow appearance1
  • Prevent migration of cells2
  • May sequester growth factors2

IODOSORB and IODOFLEX removes slough cell debris and bacteria

  • Provide effective desloughing3-6
  • Prepares the wound bed for healing by absorbing slough, debris3,7-10 and bacteria6

 

Evidence: IODOSORB against slough
