Wound Dressing

Wound dressings are essential in the wound treatment since they are capable of creating the optimal conditions for wound healing. The immediate wound coverage is the basis of wound treatment: it protects against external aggressions and dehydration while the skin regenerates naturally, forming new tissue through a complex cellular process.

The humidity management in the wound bed is a critical factor in its treatment. If in one hand the low humidity in the wound bed will let it dry, forming a physical barrier for cells migration, on the other hand the exudate in excess must be absorbed, avoiding its accumulation and solidification in the wound bed.

AbsorKi®

Presentation

AbsorKi® is a soft and absorbent dressing. It is composed of chitosan, a biopolymer with proved healing properties. AbsorKi® is presented in 10 cm x 7 cm or 7 cm x 5 cm patches.


Application

AbsorKi® is intended for the humidity management of the wound bed, due to its capability of absorbing the exsudate of the wound, but without letting it dry. AbsorKi® is intended for the management of traumatic wounds, surgical wounds, major wounds with exudate, or in the management of infected wounds (it is necessary an additional treatment). AbsorKi® is also indicated for the management of chronic vascular wounds and pressure ulcers, superficial and second degree burn wounds, minor abrasions, lacerations, cuts and scalds.

HidroKi®

Presentation

HidroKi® is an hydrogel composed of chitosan and with a high content of apyrogenic water. It is intended as a primary dressing and it offers a local pain relief. HidroKi® is presented in 10 cm x 7 cm or 7 cm x 5 cm patches.


Application

HidroKi® is intended, as a primary dressing, to cover wounds or burns dehydrated and without exudates, keeping a moistened environment and allowing the autolytic debridement of necrotic tissue. The dressing also protects the wound against abrasion, friction, desiccation and external contaminations.

HemoKi®

Presentation

HemoKi® is a chitosan haemostatic dressing. Chitosan is a biopolymer with haemostatic properties, which reduces the time required to stop the wound bleeding. HemoKi® is presented in 10 cm x 7 cm or 7 cm x 5 cm patches.


Application

HemoKi® is intended for the management of hemorrhagic wounds, such as vascular access sites and in case of percutaneous catheters or tubes removal. It is also indicated for the management of lacerations, abrasions and nasal bleedings. It is effective in patients on anti-coagulation therapy or on hemodialysis.
