Iodosorb* ointment is a sterile formulation of cadexomer iodine. When applied to the wound, Iodosorb cleans it by absorbing fluids, removing exudate, pus and debris and forming a gel over the wound surface. As the ointment swells, iodine is released, killing bacteria in the wound.
Benefits: - Helps promote wound healing - Effectively removes pus and debris - Helps promote a clean wound-healing environment - Non-adherent to wounds, reducing trauma at dressing changes and protecting delicate epithelium. - Cadexomer iodine absorbs 6 to 8 times its own weight in fluid, limiting the number of dressing changes required. - Helps reduce odour associated with heavily contaminated wounds.
