Wound Monitoring Through MDS

If the Miracle Dressing Wound Care System stays on the wound for 21 to 28 days, how do caregivers gauge the health of the wound and care for the wound?

Because Miracle Dressing is an extremely thin, relatively transparent, non-woven regenerated cellulose fiber bandage, it hugs the wound and surrounding skin. This allows the length, width, and depth of the wound to be easily measured. In fact, these wound parameters can easily be marked with a narrow pointed surgical marker on the Miracle Dressing itself. Thus the healing speed and quality can be charted without removing the Miracle Dressing.

How can one measure the speed and quality of healing or the presence of infection, blood, or exudate? How do you apply medicinals like antibiotics or lubricants?

The three sizes and shapes of pores in the Miracle Dressing allow breathability, water permeability, and accentuated capillary forces to lift blood and exudate away from the wound and pull topical creams and lotions towards the wound. Cleaning the wound with hydrogen peroxide and/or water without removing the dressing is also accomplished directly through the Miracle Dressing. Often if a wound is heavily exudating, many caregivers confuse the yellow exudate for purulent discharge of infection, especially when the wound dressing is infrequently washed or soaked. Yet rarely does the Miracle Dressing need to be removed. Utilizing a slight massaging action over the wound part of the dressing while alternating warm water and hydrogen peroxide compresses in five minute rotations usually removes the heavy exudate and revitalizes a wound that looked infected.
