B. Braun Prontosan

braun-37

When you think of wound treatment, you likely consider irrigation, a sterile dressing and a bandage as the norm. But EMTs and paramedics working in remote locations and extended deployments, such as mid-ocean oil rigs and combat zones, often have to manage a patientÌs wound through the entire healing process. Prontosan from B. Braun is an FDA 510(k) approved wound irrigation solution that speeds healing. Prontosan contains polyhexanide and betaine. Polyhexanide is a preservative that prevents bacterial growth, ensuring the solution remains sterile for up to eight weeks. Betaine is a surface active solution that penetrates difficult coatings and removes debris, bacteria and biofilm. Prontosan has shown impressive results in chronic wound management since it was introduced to the European market in 2003.Ü
