Active dressing in the form of a hydrocolloid gel to be used for all kinds of wounds.
Polisept® Vet Wound Gel is a modern preparation used in the care and helping heal wounds in animals.
Polisept® Vet Wound Gel contains two synergistically acting active substances contained in the hydrocolloid gel:
Polisept® Vet Wound Gel is used in adjunctive treatment for:
Before using the gel, it is recommended to clean and decontaminate the wound using a fluid for irrigation of wounds Polisept® Vet Wound Irrigation (depending on the type and condition of the wound) (Fig. 1), or if necessary, apply surgical treatment of the wound.
Removal of mechanical and biological impurities and decontamination of wound including removal of bacterial Biofilm creates optimal conditions for further treatment. Sparging lacerations, bite wounds, recesses or pockets must ensure the drainage of fluid. The gel must be applied on the dried wound. Severe infection of the wound may require application of suitable antiseptic formulation.
By squeezing the tube, apply a thin layer (3-5 mm) directly on the wound (Fig. 2)
The gel can also be applied to a wound with a sterile spatula (Fig. 3, 3a)
In the case of deep wounds, fill the wound with gel to 2/3 of the depth so as not to leave it protruding above the surface of the skin surrounding the wound.
The wound should be covered with a secondary dressing (in the case of the daily exchange gel in the wound, you do not need to use secondary dressings however, it should be protected against licking by the animal).
All types of secondary dressings. Gauze, compresses or other easily absorbable dressings should also be soaked with the preparation (Fig. 4)
Change of dressing.
The frequency of dressing changes depends on the adopted procedure, nature and condition of the wound. The gel can be changed every day (Fig. 5) or left in the wound for 3 days. When changing the dressing, remove gently the gel residues or other residues (so as not to damage the wound) rinse the wound with irrigation fluid Polisept® Vet Wound Gel (Fig. 5, 6, 6a) based on the condition of the wound.
POLISEPT® VET WOUND GEL:
Speeds up and facilitates the process of wound healing
Provides optimum water balance within the wound
Cleans the wound from biological contamination arising during wound healing (waste products, toxins, etc.).
Protects the wound against external infection while ensuring optimal gas exchange
Prevents biofilm formation
Speeds up angiogenesis within the wound
Perfectly fits into the scheme of “TIME” for dealing with wounds
POLISEPT® VET WOUND GEL:
The unique properties of Polisept® Vet Wound Gel result from the synergistic action of the main active substance, antibacterial agent and tenside contained in the hydrocolloid gel.
Antibacterial agent Polyhexanide (PHMB)
The mechanism of PHMB.
Polyhexanide has affinity for cell membranes of microorganisms. Interacting with the membrane proteins it neutralizes their immune system and penetrates inside the bacterial cell. Then it combines with the cytoplasmic membrane proteins resulting in a loss of Mg and Ca ions, with consequent disruption of the cytoplasmic membrane of the bacterial cell. In this step of PHMB, the process is irreversible and leads to the death of the bacterial cell by loss of essential morphotic elements.
Because of its broad and specific properties, PHMB is recommended as a treatment of choice in the handling of slow healing chronic wounds.
The mechanism of action of Betaine.
Betaine is a mild surfactant, highly effective in wound irrigation. The mechanism of action of betaine involves the lowering of the surface tension of the liquid phase, which leads to the separation of organic substances from the base (micro-organisms, tissue necrosis, etc.), and inorganic substances. It also prevents re-merging of isolated elements into aggregates or re-attachment of microorganisms to the wound surface, thus effectively affects the flushing of any “contamination” from the wound. A special characteristic of betaine includes the ability to destroy the integrity of the bacterial BIOFILM within the wound, leading to the exposure of microbes to e.g. antibiotics. Bacterial biofilm is a major obstacle in the treatment of chronic wounds (observed in more than 60% of chronic wounds) and acute wounds in the early hours of treatment.
It provides the right conditions of wound humidity – maintains the optimum humidity within the wound
Polisept® Vet Wound Gel is a product that gives excellent results in the management of wounds, conducted within the scheme TIME, meeting the requirements set out in sections M and E
