Stabilized hypochlorous acid has been reported to have a rapid kill rate on all pathogens, including MDR pathogens associated with chronic and acute wound infections. It destroys biofilm on contact, is not cytotoxic, reduces inflammation and stimulates wound healing. We report on our experience with a new treatment method using hypochlorous acid for wound irrigation and a dressing adjuvant for septic non-healing wounds, using a simplified approach to wound care that is not only more effective but cheaper to perform.

Accredited for 3 Clinical CPD on Level 1 (2021)
