KRUUSE Wound Flushing Solution
The KRUUSE Wound Flushing Solution sachet contains the correct amount of electrolyte to add to the Wound Flushing System to produce 3L of body temperature physiological saline solution.
The sachet also includes 0.04% polyhexanide (PHMB), an antiseptic, used as a preservative. This solution is ideal for professional wound lavage in a busy surgical or single handed field setting.
The Importance of Wound Lavage
Wounds containing >105 bacteria/gram of tissue will have a high infection rate and delayed wound healing. It is important to keep the burden low to create the optimal environment for wound healing and wound lavage is the key to ensuring this.
Optimal irrigation pressure needs to be achieved while minimising tissue trauma
Pressures between 8-12psi are recognised as a standard that creates enough pressure to dislodge debris and bacteria without driving contaminants further into the wound. Too low of a pressure becomes ineffective and too high can increase tissue trauma; pressure is crucial.
“Progress in practical and economical wound management does not happen very often. The KRUUSE Wound Flushing Unit is physiologically sound and very well constructed. This simple system will certainly enhance your reputation for wound management and you will find that you get better results!
“I cannot recommend this piece of equipment highly enough – every practice should have several of these available at all times!”Professor Derek C. Knottenbelt OBE, BVM&S, DVM&S, DipECEIM, MRCVS
