Often dressing changes can be reduced from several times a day to once a day or even once every 2 or 3 days. Many chronic wounds are highly exudating and the large amount of exudate is attributable to a high bioburden in the wound site, which has resulted from the patient’s compromised immune system.By absorbing the exudate into the polymer matrix the nutrient supply and the environment for the bacterial growth is concentrated in the polymer matrix and not as much in the tissue.The healing in turn reduces the amount of fluid produced, which reduces the amount of contamination, etc. Cover the wound with a non-adherent dressing and secure with tape or elastic bandage.and if the nutrition is sufficient, wound closure occurs. The absorption of the fluid also reduces the rate of reproduction of the microorganisms by reducing their ability to move freely and reduces the nutrient transport to the organism.This absorption of the fluid effectively reduces the irritation to the tissue and allows the healing process to proceed.Therefore, it may not be necessary to use the entire contents of this package.
Gold Dust™ may be used as dry granules on highly exudating wounds, but the wounds must be monitored for the potential of over-drying the tissue.Sprinkle a layer of Gold Dust™ to generously cover the wound area. Mix packet contents (3g) into 30cc of water, mix rapidly. Note: Product will absorb 100 times its own water weight. Please provide your email address below and tick to consent.Gold Dust™ is a high absorbent hydrophilic polymer capable of absorbing large amounts of exudate and retaining the exudate in the matrix even under high pressures.
The aqueous fluids remain trapped in the polymer matrix and can only be removed by evaporative drying or solvent extraction.
