COMPARATIVE STUDY BETWEEN EUSOL AND NORMAL SALINE IN WOUND HEALING

Arnab Adak, Shibshankar Raychaudhury

Abstract


We encountered many patients with cellulitis and necrotising fascitis in the emergency ward regularly. Patients requireed
regular dressing. Eusol or normal saline may be used during dressing of the wound.
Here we made a comparative study between the two agents. Eusol has a overall better result-granulation tissue developed early,wound swab
became free from slough and bacterial growth earlier. Eusol is not harmful for surface wounds when used in diluted form.
