"All wounds should be irrigated/cleansed: initially and with each dressing change. With goals of removing debris, necrotic tissue, and purulent exudate, an important addition is removing biofilm, which delays proper healing. Normal saline (NS), 0.9%, is the optimal solution. It should be delivered at least at 8 psi to be efficacious, and no more than 15 psi to be safe. The NS should be sterile and warm, the delivery method easy to use, and also cost effective. "
