See the results clinicians have been achieving with Debrisoft on a wide range of skin conditions and wound types.
The photos are taken 30 days apart. The nurse and patient were "astounded" by how effectively and painlessly slough was removed.
Debrisoft took only one minute to achieve the results in the second photo. The patient felt no pain.
Hyperkeratosis was causing "considerable irritation" to the patient. The photos, taken 2 weeks apart, show how effective weekly use of Debrisoft is at improving skin quality. The patient applied an emollient after each use.
Debrisoft removed the dead tissue which was causing an offensive odour, the patients legs weep less and remain infection free.
The patient was very anxious at first having had her ulcer for over 2 years. Pain was felt at each dressing change and now in addition she has cellulitis. Debrisoft achieved these results in 5 minutes and no pain was felt.
Unclear why wound would not heal. Debrisoft was used to investigate further and under the slough this toe nail was found!
Debrisoft was used to remove hyperkeratosis and soften edges of eschar. This facilitated eschar removal by sharp debridement. Debrisoft was used again to remove offensive smelling slough revealing pink granulating tissue.
Debrisoft painlessly removed slough from the wound in 1 minute.
It took a minute to reveal a clean wound bed.
With a 10 minute Practice Nurse slot, Debrisoft speeds up wound assessment, cleansing and the absorbtion of emollients.
The slough in this very wet wound was easily removed by Debrisoft.
A single use of Debrisoft achieved these results.
Injury from barbed wire and dirt was cleansed with Debrisoft and saline for 4 minutes.
Patient presented in A&E and Debrisoft used. The wound could be clearly assessed and seen to be not infected.
2 uses of Debrisoft a week apart removed non viable tissue.
This patient was admitted into hospital for an unrelated medical problem and the wound was noticed on admission. The tissue type was a soft yellow slough and it took less than 2 minutes to achieve this result with Debrisoft.
Debrisoft was used on these ulcers and varicose eczema 5 times over a 2 week period. Treatment time between 2 and 10 minutes. Images are taken 2 weeks apart.
Day 1.Debrisoft used for about 30 seconds and then Suprasorb X+PHMB applied to prevent infection and 'Before' photo taken Day 2.Debrisoft used and Suprasorb X+PHMB. Day 3. Debrisoft used and Suprasorb X+PHMB and the 'after' photo taken
Patient’s can see an improvement in the wound and it actually improves their quality of life.
I’ve seen some impressive results using Debrisoft in our specialist leg ulcer clinic. Before we started using Debrisoft we would tend to use dressings for debridement such as a hydrogel or hydrocolloid dressing, and in some instances, some sharp debridement as well. The problem with these methods of debridement is the length of time they take and also the fact that they were sometimes painful for the patient.
Debrisoft has been really good. It debrides wounds really quickly and patients like it. They can see an improvement in the wound and it actually improves their quality of life. Also, it’s reduced the amount of dressing changes we’ve had to do.
I have a gentleman who attends our specialist leg ulcer clinic and he has quite a sloughy venous leg ulcer and I use Debrisoft to aid debridement of his wound. Not only did I see the instant results using the Debrisoft but also this improvement of his wound continued through until his following dressing change a week later.
