Kendall AMD Foam

PHMB antimicrobial foam dressing

Kendall™ AMD antimicrobial foam dressings contain 0.5% Polyhexamethylene Biguanide (PHMB), a bacteria-killing polymer. Highly effective and safe, PHMB attacks bacteria on and within the dressing, limiting cross-contamination and helping to provide a bacteria-free wound healing environment.

FEATURES

Product Benefits

  • A micro-structured, open-cell surface that absorbs exudate
  • Vertical wicking action that moves fluid into foam core
  • A dense core that maximises retention of exudate
  • Soft and comfortable
  • Contains PHMB
  • Supports a moist and bactericidal environment, providing a balanced environment
  • Resists bacterial colonisation within the dressing
  • Reduces bacterial penetration through the dressing
  • Unique mode of action; Foam absorbs wound fluid; PHMB binds to foam material and kills bacteria

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
