Welcome to Wound Hygiene
Wound Hygiene is a four step regime designed to clean and decontaminate a wound, and overcome the barriers to healing often caused by the presence of biofilm.
Just as we follow basic hygiene every day by washing our hands, brushing our teeth and showering, we should apply regular basic hygiene to wounds to keep them clean and remove biofilm. By implementing Wound Hygiene, you can ensure every wound is properly prepared for healing every time.
Not everything needs to be complicated. Keep biofilm based wound care simple.
