In times when the empiric use of antibiotics is being restricted due to the spread of antimicrobial resistance, the following supplement addresses how topical antiseptics, such as octenidine dihydrochloride (OCT), are less likely to induce resistance. An analysis on how wound cleansers can be used to debride the wound surface without damaging healthy cells is also detailed. This is followed by a series of 18 case studies showing the use of Octenilin Wound Gel and Octenilin Wound Irrigation Solution on non-healing and/or infected or critically colonised non-healing wounds of different wound types including: diabetic foot ulcers, venous leg ulcers and pressure ulcers, among others.
