In wound care, it is important to remember that ‘preparation is the key to success’.

Wound bed preparation has been defined as management of the wound, in order to accelerate healing and facilitate the effectiveness of other therapeutic measures. Cleansing has been proven to affect outcomes, improve healing rates and save the NHS money.1,2

The TIMES principles3 provide a useful framework for the foundations of wound bed preparation in practice:

  Moisture balance
  Edge of the wound/epithelial cell migration 
  Surrounding skin

As such, the components of a wound bed preparation regimen should be: wound cleansing, debridement, management of infection and inflammation, measures to facilitate moist wound healing.3

Combined system

"Use Prontosan® as a combined system"

“My main objectives in leg ulcer care are to free wounds from infection or biofilm, manage exudate and debride any slough or necrotic tissue from the wound bed.”

"I have found that using all three products in combination works particularly well… Together, all three stop biofilm reforming, reduce healing time and help to prevent wound infection“4
