Q: Do I have to moisten the RTD™ Wound Dressing before treatment?
No, RTD™ Wound Dressing is ready for use and does not require any hydration prior to treatment. Please review the Instructions For Use prior to use.
Q: How often should I change the RTD™ Wound Dressing?
Under the supervision of a wound care professional, the wear time of any wound care dressing should always be based on the clinical presentation of the wound, level of exudate, and presence of infection.
Please refer to the Instructions For Use where it is suggested that RTD™ Wound Dressing may be left in place for up to 3 days or changed earlier if the dressing is saturated.
Q: Can the silver in RTD™ Wound Dressing cause cytotoxicity?
RTD™ Wound Dressing has been tested by independent labs and is shown to be non-cytotoxic. The silver complex in RTD™ Wound Dressing is tightly bound in the foam and the volume of silver ions produced is limited and in proportion to the amount of exudate absorbed.
Q: Does RTD™ Wound Dressing change colour?
The design of the dressing does not support a colour change as part of its intended use. Please consult with your wound care specialist if this is encountered.
Q: Does the RTD™ Wound Dressing help reduce odour?
Yes. Patient’s being treated with RTD™ Wound Dressing routinely state that there is a notable reduction in odour from their wound. Clinical case studies that are available to download from our website demonstrate the clinical efficacy of RTD™ Wound Dressing against commonly encountered bacteria that may be found in wounds.
