9th – 11th May, 2018
At Coloplast, we are getting ready for EWMA 2018 in Kraków, where we will make you experience why CONFORMABILITY is a key feature for wound dressings!
We will be there in full strength, with key insights of wound management and new product developments to help you deliver even better treatment for your patients.
With conventional foam dressings, a gap can form between the wound bed and the dressing. This allows exudate pooling, which may lead to the risk of infection, and to a delay in wound healing(1-3).
Biatain Silicone is a conforming dressing with 3DFit™ Technology that fills the gap and reduces exudate pooling to promote optimal healing conditions. Come to our booth to experience the conformability of our dressings!
Biatain Silicone Ag is a conforming dressing with 3DFit™ Technology that fills the gap and reduces exudate pooling to promote optimal healing conditions.
Biatain Silicone Ag has been shown to kill 99.99% of mature biofilms* (P. aeruginosa) and to prevent biofilm formation (shown in vitro).
A gap can form between the wound bed and the dressings used. Gaps allow exudate pooling, starting a chain reaction of events. Gaps create space for excess exudate pooling and pools of exudate may promote bacterial growth, leading to increased risk of infection. If exudate leaks onto the periwound skin, it will become macerated which may lead to delayed wound healing(1-3).
Join our symposium to learn more about how to use the Triangle of Wound Assessment to assess and identify the gap, how to manage the gap in clinical practice and how a structured approach for managing Leg Ulcers in Brazil leads to improved healing outcomes.
Document your patient’s wound healing process using Coloplast products in a case report.
Submit your case report and join the race to be one of the authors invited to Denmark, the home country of Coloplast.
