1 Green Wound Healing

2 Antimicrobial Wound Treatment
Green Wound Healing Non Antibiotic Non Antiseptic Antimicrobial Wound Treatment The Sorbact method selectively binds pathogenic microorganisms creating a favourable environment for wound healing

3 Many areas of use All wounds regardless of etiology, exudate level and wound condition Fungal infections in skin folds and in-between toes. Prophylactic on acute, chronic, traumatic and post surgical wounds. Sorbact is indicated for the treatment and prevention of all types of wounds and wound conditions, fungal infections in skin folds and athletes foot

4 Sorbact® - how it works Selectively reduces the bacterial load in all wounds The Sorbact method selectively binds pathogenic microorganisms creating a favourable environment for wound healing Creates conditions for the natural wound healing process to begin

5 Bacteria and fungus bind to surfaces via hydrophobic interaction.
The Sorbact®-method Bacteria and fungus bind to surfaces via hydrophobic interaction. Water molecules When two hydrophobic particles comes in direct contact the bind together with the binding force of the surrounding water molecules = Hydrophobic interaction First picture shows two hydrophobic (water repellent) particles surrounded by water molecules. When the particles come in direct contact with each other the water molecules bind together in a circle surrounding the particles holding them together (Hydrophobic interaction). Sorbact has a strong hydrophobic property and binds and inactivate the hydrophobic pathogenic microorganisms with hydrophobic interaction. Hydrophobic particle

6 Common ulcer microorganisms
Staph. aureus Pseudomonas E. coli Streptococcus Candida albicans Hydrophobic properties Hydrophobic = water-repellent Command pathogenic microorganisms found in colonized critically colonized and infected wounds are hydrophobic

7 Hydrophobicity of micro-organisms
Staph. aureus 90% Enterococci 94% E. Coli 85% Candida albicans 84% Looking at some very command pathogens we find that 94% of Enterococci, 90% of Staph. aureus, 85% of E-coli and 84% of Candida are hydrophobic. Ref. Kevin C. Hazen.

8 The Sorbact hydrophobic fabric

9 What makes Sorbact® so special?
Sorbact uses the same binding process that bacteria and fungus use to bind to surfaces, hydrophobic interaction. Sorbact applied directly on the wound surface. Pathogenic microorganisms bind to the Sorbact surface and become inactivated. With Sorbact we don’t add anything that kills the bacteria, we just use their natural method of binding to surfaces, hydrophobic interaction. Hydrophobic interaction occurs when two hydrophobic (water-repellent) particles bind to each other with the help of surrounding water molecules. Thus, bacteria and fungus bind to the Sorbact dressing, where they stop multiplying, and are removed from the wound surface when the dressing is changed. The bound microorganisms are removed when the dressing is changed.

10 Bacteria and fungus bound to Sorbact® surface
Bacteria and fungus effectively bind to the Sorbact fabric in great numbers. This electro microscopic image of the Sorbact fabric show for example Staph. aureus, Pseudomonas and Candida albicance bound to Sorbact

11 Microbiological balance
Wound healing Sorbact Wound healing Creates microbiological balance by not binding all microorganisms only the pathogenic – Creates conditions for the natural wound healing process Sorbact creates a microbiological balance in the wound binding and inactivating pathogenic microorganisms but leave the non pathogenic microorganisms that have positive effect in wound healing

12 Fungal infection in skin fold
Sorbact area of use Infected Wounds Critically colonized Hard to heal wound Wounds Prevention Fungal infection in skin fold Athletes foot This slide illustrate different wound conditions

13 Features and Benefits of the Sorbact®-method
Selective binding of microorganisms Only bind pathogenic microorganisms Instant action Binds bacteria and fungus within seconds High binding capacity Continues to bind, does not become saturated. Natural process No risk of resistance No known side effects No negative environmental effects General features and benefits for ALL Sorbact products, the detail, product specific F&B come with each product presentation later on in this presentation

14 Assortment Classic New New Gel dressing Filmdressing

15 Area of use The Sorbact product line covers all wound conditions from dry unclean, unclean and clean exudating wounds to dry clean wounds

16 Important! Direct contact with wound surface.
Green side facing the wound. Moist-wet environment needed (Classic) In low to dry wounds use the Sorbact gel Not together with greasy ointments/products.

17 Assortment for all wounds

18 Sorbact® Classic

19 Areas of Use; Sorbact® Absorbent dressing: Primary dressing for exuding superficial wounds. Compress: Primary dressing for exuding superficial and cavity wounds. Ribbon gauze: Primary dressing for exuding fistulas and cavity wounds Swab: Primary dressing for exuding small cavity wounds

20 Sorbact Weave binds and inactivate microorganisms
Surgical Dressing Sorbact Weave binds and inactivate microorganisms Transparent semi-permeable film. Protect against contamination. Easy to inspect surrounding skin. Allows transportation of water vapor and oxygen Water repellent Absorbent wound pad Hypo-allergenic adhesive.

21 Areas of Use Sorbact® surgical dressing
Suture lines Secondary healing Superficial acute wounds

22 Gel Dressing Sorbact fabric binds and inactivates microorganisms
Hydrogel Ensure hydrophobic binding. Create moist wound healing environment No harm to new fragile granulation tissue. Debriding effect. Easy to apply Comfortable to the patient Decrease pain at dressing changes

23 Areas of Use; Sorbact Gel
Primary dressing on dry to low exuding wounds. Can be used for prevention and treatment of all types of colonised to infected wounds. Can be combined with all Sorbact products.

24 Frequency of dressing changes
Recommended frequency of dressing changes - Infected wounds: Initially once daily - Collonized/Critically colonized wounds: According to exudate level every 2 – days The frequency will be decreased according to wound status improvement - ”Clean” wounds: 2 times/week or when needed The frequency of dressing changes are depending on exudate level and wound condition

25 Practical information Fungal infections
Easy to use Apply directly on the infected area Daily application until no signs of infection (Continue a few days after symptoms disappear) If fixation is needed use: bra, panties, socks, hypoallergenic tape. Safe dual action Binds and inactivates fungus Prevents skin to skin contact .
