Battling "Opportunistic" Pathogens and Infections? View BIOGUARD® Power Webinar
BIOGUARD® Power Webinar 1: Providing non-leaching, non-toxic, non-resistant barrier protection.
Infection rates are staggering, continue to challenge the health care system and have been shown to increase mortality, hospital readmission rates, length of stay (LOS) and overall healthcare expenditures.
During this educational webinar, Dr. Karen Zulkowski, DNS, RN, Montana State University will discuss the potential causes of opportunistic pathogens and how they can cause disruption to healthy wound healing.
- 40% of air samples and 50% of surface areas were found to be positive for bacteria1 after dressing changes.
- During a moderately dry traditional gauze dressing change approximately, 350CFU of Staphylococcus aurous were found to be aerosolized per liter of air at 2 minutes post dressing change1.
- For MRSA patients, 12-44% of the rooms were found to be contaminated.2
Use of BIOGUARD® Barrier Dressings, which have an advanced cationic biocide - polyDADMAC - bound to the dressing substrate, can help you guard against a broad spectrum of opportunistic pathogens, including MRSA, for your patients' care.
