What is RTD® ?
RTD® is a patented wound dressing that is effective in all stages of healing by combining all four ingredients and creating singlet oxygen effect. RTD® promotes healing by primary and secondary intention. Its anti-microbial effectiveness and moisture retentive properties make it an ideal dressing choice for optimal exudate management and healing.
How It Works
- Methylene Blue:
- Catalyst for singlet oxygenation
- Strong Cation: draws negatively charged bacteria
- Historically proven, safe anti-microbial
- Attacks gram (-) negative bacteria
- Gentian Violet
- Attacks gram(-) and gram(+) bacteria
- Antibacterial and Antifungal
- Silver Ion
- Silver ions (Ag+) are slowly, continuously released in the presence of exudate
- Amount of Silver ions released are proportionate to the amount of exudate
- Silver ion (Ag+) binds to bacterial cells
- Penetrates and kills gram (-) and gram (+) bacteria
- Medical Grade Polyurethane Foam
- Capillary suction therapy (CST): pulls liquefied biofilm and bacteria from wound bed
- Bio-burden sequestration: strips toxins and debris and sequesters into foam matrix for disposal, preventing antimicrobial resistance
- Autolytic debridement
The result is a synergistic interaction of all four ingredients creating singlet oxygenation. This dressing that is versatile, ready to use and requires no hydration prior to placing onto a wound.
- SINGLET OXYGEN
- A high energy form of oxygen which is highly reactive with bacteria
- Co-combine into O2 which locally encourages healing
- Natural antimicrobial defense
- No known antimicrobial resistance to singlet oxygen
- Derived from methylene blue
- Green technology
- Antibacterial, antifungal, and analgesic.
- Easy to use.
- Comfortable, pliable, and surface conforming.
- Patented foam dressing keeps wound clean, moist, and highly absorbent
- Removes exudate and promotes optimal wound healing
- Allows for easy removal
- Cost effective – Minimal staff time. Can be changed as infrequently as every 3 day.
- Proven efficacy with difficult cases
