Hello all. I have made NSS and Dakins for my patients in the past. And I was wondering if anyone has the "formula" for acetic acid for cleansing a wound - it was ordered for cleansing 3x/week before applying a wound VAC. I have heard varying opinions, and have my own, about acetic acid. But the doc was adamant. The only thing I found was 1 part white vinegar to 10-40 parts water...a little vague I think. So does anyone have the proper ratio for me? Thanks
Acetic acid is available premade from the pharmacy. I would not be mixing my own. It's a .25% solution.
While it's use is a bit controversial, we've had great results in wounds that are colonized with pseudomonas.
Found it...made by Baxter
