Incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD)

Pages: 46 - 51

Article topics: Cost effectiveness, Patient quality of life

Incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD) relates to skin breakdown from exposure to urine or faeces, and its management involves implementation of structured skin care regimens incorporating appropriate use of skin barrier products to protect the skin from exposure to moisture and irritants. Medi Derma-PRO Skin Protectant Ointment and Medi Derma-PRO Foam & Spray Incontinence Cleanser are part of the Total Barrier Protection™ (Medicareplus International) range indicated for management of moderate-to-severe IAD and other moisture-associated skin damage (MASD). This article summarises the findings of multi-centred patient evaluations of Medi Derma-PRO Skin Protectant Ointment and Medi Derma-PRO Foam & Spray Incontinence Cleanser, and aims to demonstrate the clinical and cost benefits of using these products for the prevention and management of MASD.
