      I rate it high for MRSA control on an older or young man's or woman's compromised lower leg or any other limb to allow movement.. It can be left on minor lesions for up to three days.. Larger areas of involvement require more frequent changing as the esker and slough tend to grow in to the open foam and stick to the wound .. We are currently using ABD pads as an absorbent over AMD foamPHMB dressing held in place by cling gauze to absorb fluid discharge due to the lower cost. But Optiloc did work better when it was available . The AMD replaced silver when silver seemed to lose efficiency and caused allergic reaction. Since there has not been any unfavorable reaction to the AMD, PHMB. that has been used for years with success on surface skin lesions I'm comfortable using it on minor burns on any abrasive wounds I have treated. I would like to see a thicker pad to contain more medication and effluent to cut down on repetitive changing . Or the PHMB in a Liquid form that I seem to remember from my early Army days would be a good product for controlling the spread of various tropical infections yeasts molds, pathogens and parasites drawn to any moist wet open deeper surface wound to protect it with a moist PHMB gauze packing until proper debridement could be attended to without the risk of open wound infection by multiple organisms found with normal saline packing in DPC. wounds waiting full debridement. After all necrotic tissue and detritus is removed, the PHMB could be used in liquid form on any available dressing at the proper strength to ward of infection until final wound closure could be obtained in safe hospital surroundings .. For surface lesions. abrasions and burns the Foam pads cannot be surpassed for ease of use when all else fails to stop a MRSA infection from setting in.. It also kills flies and mosquitoes stopping on a used foam pad looking for a rest and easy effluent meal.. Nothing that works that well can be faulted in any way.. F.R.
