Kendall™ AMD Foam

Antimicrobial Foam Dressings

Kendall™ AMD Foam

Kendall™ AMD antimicrobial foam dressings are efficient, cost effective and compliant with most protocols. Kendall™ AMD antimicrobial foam dressings are impregnated with 0.5% PHMB (Polyhexamethylene Biguanide), with a high fluid capacity. Exudate is absorbed and retained to promote an optimised wound healing environment.

Key benefits

  • Highly effective with broad-spectrum activity[1,2,3]
  • Protects against the entry of bacteria and limits the risk of cross-infection[4]
  • Effective fluid retention even under compression[1]
  • Soft, conformable and comfortable for patients to wear[1]
  • Can remain in place for up to 7 days [2,3]
  • Available in non-adherent and bordered presentations
  • New gentle adhesion dressing now available to reduce pain on removal
  • No shedding of fibres or particles to minimise pain on removal

Applying Kendall™ AMD antimicrobial foam dressings*

  1. Cleanse the wound in accordance with normal procedures
  2. Dry the surrounding skin thoroughly
  3. Select the dressing which will provide a minimum of a 2 inch (5 cm) foam margin around the edges of the wound. If necessary cut the dressing to size to ensure a smooth, continuous fit with the skin surface.
  4. Kendall™ AMD antimicrobial foam dressings should be applied with the white side touching the dressing site or with the topsheet facing up
  5. Place Kendall™ AMD antimicrobial foam dressing onto the wound surface and hold in place by covering with adhesive tape or an appropriate secondary dressing
  6. The dressing should be changed when signs of saturation become visible along the edge of the dressing or whenever good nursing practise dictates
