Inadine® PVP-I, Non-Adherent Dressing
INADINE™ PVP-I Non-Adherent Dressing consists of a low adherent knitted viscose fabric impregnated with a polyethylene glycol (PEG) base containing 10% Povidone Iodine; equivalent to 1.0% available iodine.
Effective Against Bacteria
Iodine is a highly effective topical antimicrobial that has been used clinically in the treatment of wounds for more than 170 years.1
It has a broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity with efficacy against bacteria, microbacteria, fungi, protozoa & viruses.1
No Pain at Dressing Change
In a clinical evaluation study 90% of patients reported non-adherence to the wound bed and no pain at dressing change.5
How does it work?
The Povidone Iodine molecule has a broad spectrum antimicrobial action1,2and has been proven to be effective against MRSA3-5.
Reliable and Efficient
INADINE™ Dressing is a reliable, efficient and non-adherent dressing designed to manage bacterial contamination and prevent infection in both chronic and acute wounds.
INADINE™ Dressing minimises adherence to the wound bed, therefore reducing the risk of damage to the granulation tissue at dressing removal2, and in clinical practice has been shown to reduce pain for patients6,7.
As PVP–I is released the INADINE™ Dressing the dressing will change colour from orange to white. The colour change provides an indicator of how frequently dressings should be changed preventing unnecessary dressing changes, when compared to other dressings1. This could improve cost effectiveness in treatment.
INADINE™ Dressing is indicated to manage ulcerative wounds and may also be used for the prevention of infection in:
- Minor burns
- Minor traumatic skin loss injuries
- Clinical studies suggest that INADINE™ Dressing may also be an appropriate dressing choice in the management of chronic wounds, including:
- Ulcers deriving from different aetiologies7,9
- Diabetic foot ulcers7,10
- Pressure ulcers1,9
