To combat the growing global threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), clinicians have adopted alternatives to antimicrobial prescriptions in wound care. Although silver is one of the most commonly used alternative options, numerous pathogens have developed resistance to its antimicrobial effects.

This Essity-sponsored white paper discusses the dilemma of AMR as it relates to silver products used in wound care and offers evidence of the antimicrobial effectiveness of dialkylcarbamoyl chloride (DACC)–coated dressings.

AMR and antimicrobial stewardship are key issues in health care today and are of vital importance to wound care professionals on the frontlines of infection control.

This white paper contains information on the following topics:

AMR and the need for antimicrobial stewardship
Increasing AMR to silver products
Bioburden and wound healing
Integrated approach to wound care
Mechanism of action of DACC
Cutimed® Sorbact® DACC-coated dressing
