Product Description

 

Bactigras Dressings 10cm x 10cm (10)

Description

Bactigras consists of a cotton leno-weave fabric, impregnated with Soft Paraffin BP, containing 0.5% w/w Chlorhexidine Acetate BP.

Chlorhexidine is an antimicrobial agent that is active against a wide range of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria but inactive against spores, fungi and viruses; it is more effective against Gram-positive than Gram-negative organisms, and some species of Pseudomonas and Proteus are of limited sensitivity.

Indications

Bactigras is used as a wound dressing for the prevention of infection in minor skin loss injuries and ulcerative wounds. It is not the product of choice for the treatment of existing wound infections as the amount of chlorhexidine that is released from the dressing is limited, but Bactigras may be used as an adjunct to systemic antibiotic therapy where appropriate.

Contra-indications

Bactigras is contra-indicated in patients who are known to be hypersensitive to chlorhexidine.

Method of use

Prior to the application of the dressing, the wound should be cleansed with a sterile solution of normal saline. A single layer of Bactigras is then applied and covered with an absorbent pad, held in place with tape or a bandage, as appropriate.

Frequency of Change

The frequency of dressing changes will depend entirely upon the nature of the wound, but wounds considered at risk of infection should be dressed daily.

Presentation

Bactigras is presented individually wrapped in peel pouches, sterilised by gamma radiation.

Storage

Bactigras should be stored in a cool place below 25 °C.

Indications

BACTIGRAS is a wound contact layer for wounds such as:

  • Minor burns and scalds
  • Lacerations, abrasions and other skin loss wounds
  • Donor and recipient graft sites
  • Where the wound is no more than 10% of the body area, where there is a risk of infection, or on already infected wounds in conjunction with systemic antibiotics.

Contraindications / Precautions

It should not be used in known cases of sensitivity or allergy to chlorhexidine.
