Background and Purpose: One of the micro-vascular complications in patients with diabetes mellitus is a diabetic ulcer. One of he goals of care in diabetic ulcers is to reduce infection in the wound area by doing a cleansing method particularly utilizing irrigation techniques. Irrigation technique aims to reduce the number of bacteria in the wound, so that the inflammatory process is expected to be more quickly achieved. Many diabetic ulcer care-related research but researches on irrigation tools on diabetic ulcers are very minimal. This study aims to determine the effect of Modern Wound Irrigation Device (MWID) to decrease the amount of bacteria on patients with diabetic ulcers. Method: This study was utilized quasi-experimental post test only with control group design. A total of 20 respondents in this study were divided into 10 respondents for intervention group that was given wound care using MWID. 10 respondents as control group that was given manual irrigation wound care. Results: The average number of bacteria in intervention group is 30,4x109 colonies/ml, while the average number of bacteria for control group is 59x109 colonies/ml. Analysis with independent t test was found that there is no significant difference between the average number of bacteria on the intervention and control groups with p value of (0.001 < 0.005). Conclusion and recommendation: the use of MWID for current wound irrigation is proven can reduce the amount of bacteria on diabetic ulcers as compared with manual irrigation technique. Further developmental researches utilize MWID tool is to modify the output of irrigation to reduce anaerobic bacteria for gangrene wound.

Key words: Diabetic Ulcer, Wound irrigation, amount of bacteria
