Antimicrobial stewardship of antiseptics that are pertinent to wounds


Authored by Jean-Yves Maillard, Günter Kampf, Rose Cooper, this review highlights these difficulties and in particular the efficacy of current non-antibiotic antimicrobials used in dressings, their efficacy, and the challenges of translating in vitro efficacy data to the efficacy of dressings in patients. This review calls for a unified approach to developing standardized methods of evaluating antimicrobial dressings that will provide an improved basis for practitioners to make informed choices in wound care.
