Wound Cleansing

Cleaning a wound before a dressing is applied ensures that any dust and dirt is removed from the wound and that the wound is cleansed of bacteria. Open wounds create a hole in the body's natural defence against bacteria, meaning they pose a high risk of infection. Bacterial infections have to potential to make a minor injury significantly more serious. It is therefore vitally important to clean the wound before dressing it in order to safe-guard the casualty's health.

Our wound cleansing selection includes first aid kit refills, as well as on-the-go options, such as wipes, antiseptic creams, and care packs.
