About Accelerex Impregnated Wound Dressing and Accelerex Wound Cream

For use as a wound dressing to manage pressure ulcers (bed-sores stages I-IV), stasis ulcers, diabetic skin ulcers, surgical wounds, post-traumatic wounds, skin irritations, cuts, and abrasions.

Chronic wounds are a significant, expensive, and difficult-to-solve medical problem common among diabetics and the elderly — particularly nursing home patients. Untreated, these ulcers can lead to infections and, in more severe cases, necessitate an amputation. With the Baby Boomer generation entering retirement and medical advances extending life longer than ever, there is an emerging demand for a product that can effectively address — and heal — pressure ulcers.

Accelerex dressings is a revolutionary impregnated wound dressing that helps to close non-healing and slow-healing wounds. In clinical studies, Accelerex dressings was able to completely close over 92% of wounds and ulcers (see clinical studies). In multiple clinical studies, Accelerex demonstrated an ability to successfully close a wide variety of chronic wounds. In fact, Accelerex demonstrated an ability to close wounds that had previously failed to respond to treatments by other leading wound care products and therapies. Several of these patients had their wounds for over a year and might have required an amputation.

Patients that participated in these clinicals were highly pleased with the results and would recommend the product to other people suffering from topical skin ulcerations.

Accelerex® is an easy-to-use wound dressing that only needs to be changed once per day. Accelerex dressings can be used in combination with existing wound healing dressings or pharmaceuticals.

Side Effects

Some people may initially experience a stinging sensation once Accelerex is applied and the active ingredient is released into the wound. This sensation will typically pass in a few minutes. If the wound is particularly sensitive, use a topical anesthetic prior to applying the Accelerex dressing.

Applying Accelerex Wound Care Dressing

Accelerex dressing is designed to be simple and easy to use—almost as easy as applying a regular bandage.

Step one:

Gently cleanse the wound with normal saline or clean water, as you normally would.

Step two:

Using latex gloves, remove a Accelerex dressing from its sterile package.

If the package is torn, discard the dressing. It is no longer sterile.

Step three:

Place the Accelerex dressing over the wound. Make sure the entire wound is covered.

Open wounds are often very sensitive to pain, and some people may experience a stinging sensation once Accelerex is applied. This sensation may last for a minute or two as the active ingredient is initially introduced into the wound, but seldom persists longer.

If your wound is particularly sensitive to pain, you may wish to use a topical anesthetic prior to applying Accelerex. Talk with your doctor about what topical anestheric is best for you.

Step four:

Cover the Accelerex dressing with a bandage or gauze. Use adhesive tape to secure the dressing in place.

Changing the dressing

Step one:

Gently remove the bandage or gauze covering the wound and discard it.

Step two:

Gently remove the Accelerex wound dressing and discard it.

Step three:

Clean and inspect the wound.

Step four:

Reapply Accelerex until the wound has completely healed. Wound improvement is typically noticable within two weeks. Most chronic wounds will be fully closed in less than 10 weeks.
