Acceptance evaluation of an impregnated cleansing and debridement cloth – CleanWnd – Karen Staines

Background: Effective debridement is an essential component of the treatment of complex wounds (Frykberg and Banks, 2015). Removal of devitalised tissue is necessary for wound healing progression to occur (Atkin, 2016). Aims: This article will describe a product evaluation of the impregnated mechanical debridement cloth CleanWnd, with aim of evaluating efficacy, ease of use, reduction in pain level, ease of handling, reduction in time taken to complete wound debridement and the condition of the surrounding skin. Methods: The objectives were evaluated by nurses after a single use of CleanWnd in two separate cohorts of 10 and 11 participants. The experience of using CleanWnd cloths was compared subjectively with the nurse’s standard methods of debridement. Results: Overall, the debridement objective was achieved in the great majority of cases and pain levels reduced. Conclusion: All of the nurses using CleanWnd considered it clinically acceptable and easy to use. The outcome of the evaluation demonstrated the clinical acceptability of CleanWnd cloths for debriding wounds.

CONCLUSION All of the nurses using CleanWnd considered it clinically acceptable and easy to use. The debridement objective was achieved in the great majority of cases and pain levels reduced. CleanWnd will be a useful addition to the health professional’s options for wound management. Its ease of use will support consistent and effective debridement, enabling wound bed preparation and periwound skin toiletry.
