1Wound and Burn Treatment Wond-r-FulWound and Burn TreatmentWond-r-Ful is an authorized trade name for distribution of the AquaMed formulation combined with Aloe Vera.
2What does it contain? Ultra pure water Aloe Vera Sodium Silicate Sulfate of Ester of Oil of EuphorbiaceaeMagnesiumCalciumChloride
3What are its properties? Silica – acts as anti-yeast, anti-fungalMembrane stabilizer – but not a steroid – no coal tarSoothing – alkaline (8.0)Pain relieving – through depolarization of nerve pain cell junctionKills certain bacteria – Staph, Strep, E-coli, Pseudomonas (SA Institute for Medical Research #CGM )Skin absorption to depth of 2mm – ideal for burnsNon-carcinogenic, non-mutagenic and non-irritating to the skin and eyes (WARF INSTITUTE, INC. Madison, WI No )
4Primary Use - Burn & Wound Treatment Bacteriocidal – swabs showed ‘no growth’ of Staph. A., Pseudo-monis, Streptococcus – keeping the sight free of infectionRelieves pain quickly flooding the calcium channels and depolarizing nerve junctionsRapid promotion of the healing process by driving magnesium and sodium to the cell levelRapid healing should reduce long term scarringPatient comfort is increased due to ease of application - spraying Wond-r-Ful vs coating burn or wound area with Silvadene Cream or Betadene.
5How else is it used? Babies in diapers (diaper rash) (burns, skin infections)(umbilical cord site not healing)Children (anti-septic wound dressing)(scrapes, cuts, burns)(little girl’s vaginitus)(itching and infected eyes)Adults (burns, sunburn)(diabetic leg sores)(anti-septic healing agent)(psoriasis treatment)(vaginal itch)(intertrigo fungal treatment)(athlete’s foot)Nursing Homes (decubitous bed sores)Restaurants (burns, scrapes, cuts)Industrial (burns, scrapes, cuts)(anti-septic cleansing)Professionals (cleansing hands before touching patients)
6As with discovering that taking Aspirin helps prevent heart attacks, new uses for Wond-r-Ful are still being discoveredWe've had reports back from missionaries that they spray it in puss-filled ears of children with AIDS in East Africa and in their infected eyes and all sorts of sores and wounds. My daughter uses it for diaper rash. A friend in China used it for athlete's foot (he called it "stinky feet"). I use it for my itchy eyes often found in Florida.LH, RN
7Quoting an RN …It's great stuff and my wife, who is an RN, used it in a Camp Health Service in NH last summer. She sprayed it on so many kids she stopped counting - even for pink eye! Imagine kids sliding into home base, all sorts of scrapes from falls and kicks from soccer games, sunburn, a stubbornly infected toe, but mostly from infected lesions (like pimples or from scratching mosquito bites) – you get the picture!JH, Retired Hospital Administrator, FL
8And another… From a Type II Diabetic: I often get sinus problems and infections/irritations in my eyes, along with "dry eye", and so on. My brother said that he knew a natural product which might be just the thing for me: Wond-r-Ful. He said that he had an extra bottle that he'd give me, which he dropped by the next day. I put some of it into a smaller spray bottle for ease of use for my eyes and just spray it on when I'm having any problem; and I've been thanking the Lord for it -- it's great! I find it so gentle and soothing in my eyes whenever they are irritated and wonderful on any facial skin problems.Another problem I suffer with (literally) is called Intertrigo. Well, nothing has been of any lasting, deep help in treating and relieving that problem until now. Wond-r-Ful really does help.CG, PA
9Wonderful for Diaper Rash “Wond-r-Ful also has silica in it. Silica acts as an anti-yeast, or anti-fungal ingredient. I have had a number of women talk to me about its use in the bassinette area with their baby where their infant has had a bad case of diarrhea and has developed severe diaper rash. I had a patient come to me recently who had a child who was about a year old, but had a chronic diarrhea condition and with it chronic diaper rash. She used Wond-r-Ful, and six hours later I got a call from her. She said, “you won’t believe it.” “This rash is almost all gone.” All within four to six hours.”“A study was also done with Wond-r-Ful at a nursing home. The nursing staff loved it because instead of having to apply hand creams to the diaper rash area of the patients, they could just clean the area and spray. All the problems with diaper rash were gone.”Testimonial from an Emergency Room Physician
10Soothing for burns Patients say it relieves burn pain quickly. Wond-r-Ful’s mechanism of action in pain relief is two-fold:Firstly, as the solution is alkaline (pH 8.0), it tends to neutralize the acid environment in a burn.Secondly, the calcium, along with the magnesium, is driven into the cell through the calcium channels, flooding them so that when depolarization occurs in a nerve pain cell at the junction, further diffusion into the nerve terminals is inhibited.
11Pediatric Study – Pain experienced by burn patients at dressing changes Pain Control in Pediatric Burn PatientsRed Cross Children's' HospitalUniversity of CapetownCapetown, SAResearcher: Dr. H. Scheinfeld, MD - Trauma SurgeonRene Albertyn, RN - Pain SpecialistOne of the most distressing problems with burn patients is the pain they experience with dressing changes. A study was undertaken at the Red Cross Children's Hospital in Capetown, South Africa, the teaching hospital of the University of Capetown, to see if a solution called Wond-r-Ful could reduce the pain children experience with dressing changes.Wond-r-Ful is a solution of Ultra-Pure water, magnesium, sodium, sulfated ester oil of euphoribiacae and trace elements. It is non-carcinogenic, non-mutagenic, and non-irritating to skin and eyes. Its LD50 is greater than 20 grams per kilogram. The solution is also bactericidal to Staph, Strept, E. Coli, and Pseudomonas.A study with twenty-one (21) children, all over three years old, was undertaken to look at the solution's effect on pain control during dressing changes. The study was double blinded. At each dressing change the patient had his / her dressings soaked in either Normal Saline (which was the hospital solution used to remove adherent burn dressings) or Wond-r-Ful. The bottles were not labeled as to content, only with a code. The only person who knew the code for each bottle was never involved in patient care.At each dressing change the RN soaked the dressings in either one or the other solution depending on which patient was enlisted to receive which coded solution. The RN noted the amount of pain described by the patient.RESULTOver half the cases of those whose dressings were soaked in Wond-r-Ful described no pain at dressing changes, compared to the control group which continued to complain of pain with dressing changes. There was also no increase in the incidences of infection.CONCLUSIONWe found that Wond-r-Ful is a safe, non-toxic solution which does not promote infection, but which reduces or eliminates the pain patients experience with the changing of burn dressings.

22VIETNAM BURN STUDY October 25, 1997 through November 9, 1997 This presentation is a pictorial summary of a pilot burn study done in Hanoi, Vietnam. Comments from participating doctors are included. The study is part of a test program, the results of which were submitted and accepted by the Vietnam Ministry of Health May-June 1998.Dr. Phan Van Hanh, MD - Coordinator
23VIETNAM BURN STUDY October 25, 1997 through November 9, 1997 The pilot study was undertaken to determine if a sprayed-on solution called Wond-r-Ful, which is bactericidal to Staph, Strept, E.Coli, Pseudomonas, and Salmonella, would be effective in the treatment of second and third degree burns. The doctors in this study have since expanded it to other hospital burn centers.
