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.
Iodine is a highly effective topical antimicrobial that has been used clinically in the treatment of wounds for more than 170 years. It has a broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity with efficacy against bacteria, microbacteria, fungi, protozoa and viruses.
How does it work?
The Povidone Iodine molecule has a broad spectrum antimicrobial action and has been proven to be effective against MRSA.
INADINE minimises adherence to the wound bed, therefore reducing the risk of damage to the granulation tissue at dressing removal, and in clinical practice has been shown to reduce pain for patients.
