Long Island, N.Y. Ė John Huaylinos, RN, Personal Touch Home Care, has found that a new antimicrobial foam wound dressing, Hydrofera Blue (HFB), has helped some of his difficult-to-heal chronic wound patients. The product has shown success with a variety of non-healing wounds, including ó pressure/decubiti ulcers, arterial, diabetic, and venous stasis ulcers, skin tears, pyoderma gangrenosum, fungal rashes, and graft and surgical sites. It provides broad bacteriostatic protection against a variety of microorganisms, such as Staph aureus, E-coli, Serratia marcescens, MRSA, and VRE. As a topical antiseptic, it can help to manage pain. Hydrofera Blue has a capillary vacuum action that draws excess fluid and removes toxins from the wound bed while reducing odor.
