Bed Sores

Evaluation of Septic Wound Care Dressings by GBN Analytics:
Dr. M. J. and der Meer (Ph.D.)

I was asked this year (1993) to evaluate a new patented wound dressing. The original trials conducted by my client over a period of years, and recorded in the form of photographs and affidavits by doctors, nursing sisters and patients, indicated that the product might have tremendous potential to alleviate a number of conditions which are normally clinically difficult to cure.
Bedsores, leg ulcers and necrosis due to snake bites were healed in a reasonably short time even though they had been "incurable" by current therapy for several years in some cases.

In order to satisfy myself that the product was indeed as good as the documentation indicated I embarked on a small pilot study under scientifically controlled conditions at Condradie Hospital in Cape Town.
A 72-year-old Quadriplegic patient (P. W.) had a bed sore at the base of his spine with severe tissue loss and sloughing.
Tissue loss was so severe that the vertebrae were visible.
Treatment at that stage consisted of saline and /or Eusol washing, together with the application of either Aserbine cream of Glycerin and Lethammol.
Despite this, the wound continued to enlarge and was about 5 x 3 cm in size (photo 

It was decided that this patient would be a good candidate for the new dressing and that this would be the only treatment applied.
Dressings were changed on a 6-hourly base and the patient was examined daily by the nursing staff and consulting Doctor.
I examined the patient on a weekly basis and took photographs periodically.
Within 24 hours the wound had taken on a healthier appearance and began to improve visibly by the end of the first week.
Four weeks later new tissue growth was apparent and by the 37th day the vertebrae were completely covered with new tissue 

The size had decreased to 4 x 3 cm.
The wound continued to improve and by the 57th day it was 3.5 x 2.5 cm (Photo 3) in size.

The final photograph taken on the 70th day shows the size to be 3 x 0.8 cm.
By this stage, the dressings had been discontinued for about 10 days.


Apply the Chemspunge Wound Dressing over the affected area of a superficial wound and secure it.
Dressing must be renewed when saturated.
Cavity wound: change plugs only, every 6 hours by lifting one corner of the dressing and inserting new plugs.
Continue till the wound starts bleeding then remove the plugs to allow granulation.
Continue with Chemspunge until the wound is healed.
