Your excellent information, response time and gracious help with RTD samples is deeply appreciated. The gentleman I am working with has a deep ulcerated area on the side of his neck due to radiation and lancing of a squamous cell carcinoma. He was tending his own wound with only 1/4″ packing tape, sterile saline and some large Band-Aids impregnated with Neosporin. When he asked me if I could help him clean out and re-pack his wound. I could not believe what we had to work with. I started researching options for the best way to help heal his skin and the wound. From my previous experience working in a dermatology practice years ago, I knew his fragile, radiated skin needed to be kept moist, yet free of serum and exudate. There is still so much fibrous slough to clean out, but in one day using a cut piece of the 1/4′ RDT placed to fit just on top of the packed tape, like a lid (the raw edge of the wound opening and the surrounding neck skin are just too delicate right now to be touched or taped). The next day, I found the sponge soaked up all the fluids, kept the wound moist, but did adhere to one very tiny edge of the wound. Today, I cut an even smaller piece to place just inside the wound like a cork. I am amazed that no infection spread, no slough reproduced, no serum leaked outside the sponge, and the wound edge was viable and pink and moist. Without this excellently engineered sponge, I have no doubt it would have only taken 24 hours for the bacteria in the wound to spiral out of control, and would most likely have ended up requiring a visit to the ER, and an escalated wound situation that could jeopardize his opportunity for surgery and skin graft in the near future. You have brought new hope to this situation.
I will share your awesome product and information with the physicians and veterinarians I know. M. Deluca, Texas
“I want to say how amazing RTD Wound Dressing is. We have used the samples you sent on different wounds. Recently we used it on a venous ulcer for a client, and now the wound is healed.
I am working with our office manager to order more RTD dressings.”

“70 y/o patient with a 6 months old Venous Leg Ulcer, we have been treating for last 4 1/2 weeks . 1st week with Manuka honey. Last 3 1/2 weeks with standard of care plus RTD™ Wound Dressing changed 2 x per week. Awesome results. DNA sequencing results showed high levels of polymicrobial infection at start of therapy. Will swab next week for new results. Love the RTD™ !!!” Cesar Lozano Sued, Managing Partner Wound Consultants Of South Texas LLC
“I had the chance to try out the RTD™ Wound Dressing on a patient and it did make a difference in the overall size of the wound. The patient has a heel ulcer that has been going on for months and in one 3-week trial of your RTD™ dressing the wound decreased in size from 15 x 15 x 5mm to 7 x 4 x 3mm.” Dr. Brian Doerr, DPM, PA, Ft.

“Hi, this is XXX, Unit Manager at XXX. We got some samples from you. We LOVE RTD™ dressing. We’ve had amazing results with it. I’m sending you a picture. 11 Days in between.”
The wound is a venous ulcer on the right shin of 56-year-old male with severe venous disease and type II DM.The first picture is from 11/13/15 when the wound was first discovered. The wound was about 3 cm in diameter, with necrotic tissue. Minimal purulent drainage, no odor. Leg was edematous from toes to mid-thigh and painful. Patient was started on IV and oral antibiotic. Wound was mechanically debried, RTD™ foam applied directly into the wound bed and 2 layer compression wrap was applied from toes to mid-thigh. Dressing remained intact until 11/17/15. Second picture is from 11/17/15. Wound was approx. 2 cm in diameter, well profused bed. Minimal serous drainage, no odor. Wound was cleaned, RTD™ reapplied and leg re-wrapped. IV and oral antibiotics continued.Last picture is from 11/24/15. Wound was completely healed up with scar tissue. Small area still open to the side where RTD™ was not originally applied.
As one of the busiest home care agencies in The Villages, FL, RTD™ is our go-to dressing. It is cost-effective, easy to use, highly absorptive, and incorporates the 3 ingredients we all have used for healing wounds: methylene blue, gentian violet, and silver. Our patients love that it not only promotes quick healing, but also decreases their pain. — Cathy Martin, RN, Oasis Coding Specialist/Nurse Educator, Greystone Home Healthcare
I have utilized RTD™ foam wound dressing for homebound patients and found it very effective in treating diabetic foot ulcers and other wounds with bacterial colonization. The combined action of silver, gentian violet, and methylene blue seems ideal in managing all types of wounds in different care environment. RTD™ foam is easy to use, clinically effective, and offers much more than using silicone based foam dressings. — James McLean, BSN, RN, CWOCN, Wound and Ostomy Specialist, Klarus Homecare, Fort Worth, TX; and Alex Khan, APRN, ACNS-BC, MSN, CWCN, CFCN, WCN-C, Advanced Practice Nurse/Adult Clinical Nurse Specialist
I have found the RTD™ wound dressing easy to apply, well tolerated by the animals, and cost effective for owners. Wounds dressed with the RTD™ sponge have minimal to no proliferative granulation tissue, minimal discharge, and have improved wound contracture and epithalial advancement. In the short time I have used this dressing, I have been pleased with the outcome of the variety of wounds I have used the dressing on. Dr. M.K., UC Davis Large animal school
