EBA 2015 in Hannover

Graphic showing how wound healing time decreases when using Mepilex AgThe 15th annual European Burns Association (EBA) event took place in Hannover, Germany between 16-19 September. Mölnlycke Health Care exhibited with a 12 square-metre booth. 

Our primary message surrounded the results of a recent study1, which showed that Mepilex® Ag outperformed Acticoat in terms of faster burn healing. The study compared three dressing regimes to determine which treatment would be most effective in terms of healing acute, partial thickness burns (≤10% total body surface area) and reducing pain and distress at dressing changes.
