Removal of bacteria is a central tenet of wound hygiene, but how to ensure
our efforts are most successful and tailored to the patient? This session will discuss:
- How fluorescence imaging (MolecuLight i:X) for detection of elevated bacterial burden is used alongside various bacterial removal strategies to evaluate effectiveness at point-ofcare and inform where to focus our efforts
- Lessons learned from imaging on how to support more thorough wound hygiene, and why we need to be changing out our gauze!
