This online webinar recording focuses on the practical applications of using hypochlorous acid (HOCl) to treat chronic and acute wounds. HOCl is a non-cytotoxic, anti-pathogen and anti-inflammatory solution used as wound irrigation and dressing. Random Clinical Trial results in peer-reviewed journals demonstrate that hypochlorous acid is not only less expensive than current wound treatment methods, but also heals wounds more than 50% faster than when current antiseptics (iodine, peroxide) are used. Wound healing principles are discussed and through images, you will be taught how to recognise clinical signs that indicate why a wound is not healing, and how to reverse the reasons for non-healing. The webinar uses different clinical scenarios to educate on how to overcome difficult-to-treat scenarios and thereby benefit patients through this new treatment method that is gaining popularity worldwide.
