BIOGUARD® is non-toxic, safe and effective on a broad-spectrum of bacterium. For wounds that are either critically colonized or infected, bacterial control – even at the expense of some good cells – is paramount. For antimicrobials such as silver dressings, this is standard course of action. These dressings are generally limited to critically colonized/infected situations for a maximum duration of 2 weeks.
For wounds that are sterile, contaminated, or colonized, the main goal is wound healing (while avoiding critical colonization or infection). For these wound types, only dressings that are non-toxic to healthy cells, such as BIOGUARD®, should be considered.
