The advanced dressing for infected wounds!

Dextrosan® = Exudex® + Chitosan
Dextrosan®is indicated for the cleaning and removal of exudate from wet wounds, ulcers and burns which are exuding either clean or infected plasma and enhancing healing of the wound by the antibacterial activity of Chitosan.

Dextrosan® is comprised of half parts dextranomer and half parts chitosan. Greatly increasing the antimicrobial effects of dextranomer while minting strong absorptive properties and a moist wound bed environment essential to proper wound healing. With the addition of Chitosan’s electrostatic interaction and absorptive properties, infected heavily to moderately exuding wounds can be treated with better outcomes.

Description

Dextranomer beads (granules) provide the foundation for all three of our wound dressings. Dextranomer, in the form of microbeads having average diameter of 0.1 to 0.3 mm. Dextranomer is a cross-linked polysaccharide biopolymer having a three-dimensional structure. When placed on a wound, Dextranomer absorbs the exudate and plasma. Each bead has internal channels able to absorb liquids and smaller molecules (MW <1000). It also removes larger molecules (MW> 5000), such as microorganisms, plasma proteins, fibrinogen and related products from the exudates, by entrapping them in the space between the beads and transporting them away from the wound, (chromatographic effect). Each gram of Dextranomer absorbs about 4 ml of aqueous liquids and can generate suction force of 200mmHg. Typically, the speed of absorption is greater than the secretion by the wound. This action continues until both types of channels are saturated.

Chitosan, is an 80mesh, 90+% Deacetylation Degree (DA) type of fiber taken from crustacean shells. Chitosan has been proven to exert antibacterial activity by electrostatic interaction between its positively charged amino functionalities and microbial cell membranes. This activity causes changes in the bacterial wall permeability, resulting in forming internal osmotic imbalances. These imbalances lead to leakage of the intracellular components, as a result of its bacterial death.

    I turned to this product when I became aware of the discontinuation of other products such as Venelex and Proderm, but this product turned out to be a fantastic and better alternative. It goes on easily with a special applicator, and it stays on due to a thicker consistency. The skin responded quickly and noticeably, and the patient expressed a soothing feeling almost immediately. The product has lasted, and the wound has responded very well, appearing to “dry” around the edges, an indication of healing, and suppuration decreasing with the exudation. I will definitely continue to use this product over any others!!!
