Chronic wound care requires a precise balance of managing moisture and bacteria. Kendall™ AMD antimicrobial foam dressings have been developed to support your efforts in managing both moisture and bacterial balance. The dressings are made of an open-cell polyurethane foam and are impregnated with 0.5% Polyhexamethylene Biguanide (PHMB), a highly effective low-toxicity antiseptic. Effective against gram positive and gram negative bacteria, and also effective against fungi and yeast, AMD antimicrobial foam dressings are compliant with most existing wound care protocols.
Kendall™ AMD antimicrobial foam border dressings are designed to help prevent complications like friction and shear injuries. A better wound environment leads to better patient outcomes. Kendall™ AMD antimicrobial foam dressings provide an ideal healing environment by simultaneously managing moisture and bacteria in the dressing. As the foam dressing absorbs exudate, PHMB targets and kills bacteria on contact.
Kendall™ AMD antimicrobial foam is also available in 25 mm (1 inch) discs.
The powerful protection of Kendall™ AMD antimicrobial foam dressings are also available in foam discs which are effective for up to 7 days. The PHMB impregnated foam discs help to provide a barrier of protection for catheter insertion sites such central venous catheters (CVC) and peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs). The Kendall™ AMD antimicrobial foam discs are also ideal for use around external fixation devices.
Kendall™ AMD antimicrobial foam discs help to improve patient outcomes by:
- Helping to protect against CRBSI (catheter related blood stream infections)
- Protecting insertion sites from harmful bacteria such as MRSA & VRE
- Providing efficacy for up to 7 days
- Limiting cross contamination
- Promoting a healthy wound (insertion) environment
Kendall™ AMD antimicrobial foam dressings are indicated for use in management of post-surgical incisions, pressure ulcers, venous stasis ulcers, diabetic ulcers, donor sites, abrasions, lacerations, 1st and 2nd degree burns, dermatologic disorders, other wounds inflicted by trauma and, as a secondary dressing or cover dressing for packed wounds.
It is an ideal dressing in the local management of exudate that may occur at surgically induced body exit sites such as tracheostomy, G-tube, J-tube, Penrose drain, chest tube, nephrostomy tube, sump drain, I.V. catheters, central venous lines, arterial catheters, dialysis catheters, peripherally inserted coronary catheters, mid-line catheters, externally placed orthopedic pins and epidural catheters.
