Suprasorb X+PHMB

A moist wound dressing for critically colonised and infected wounds

In detail

Suprasorb® X+PHMB aids wound healing or reduction of the wound area of wounds at risk of infection or infected wounds.

Its HydroBalance effect means it is able to absorb exudate and donate fluid at the same time, dependent on the condition in different areas of the wound bed. Providing a moist wound healing environment.

PMHB exerts antimicrobial action against a wide spectrum of pathogens*: fast and effective in killing bacteria, fungi and yeasts.

It selectively acts on bacteria without affecting healthy cells. Suprasorb X+PHMB releases PHMB to work within the wound not just in the dressing.

The moist environment and cooling effect of Suprasorb X+PHMB is perceived as pleasant and soothing. It is highly conformable and well tolerated.
