Silver Antimicrobial High Performance Dressing
Comprised of polysaccharide gelling fibers containing CMC* and ionic silver, this dressing is a highly absorbent, non-woven dressing which turns into a soft, cohesive sheet of gel when in contact with wound exudate. It promotes autolytic debridement and provides improved exudate management and healing to challenging cases.
Key Features and Benefits
It contains ionic silver and effectively manages and suppresses colonization and proliferation of bacteria and yeast within the dressing for up to 7 days.
Effective against a broad spectrum of microorganisms such as: Staphylococcus Epidermidis including MRSE, Streptococcus Pyogenes, Enterocuccus Faecalis (VRE), Staphylococcus Aureus including MRSA, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa, Escherichia Coli, Candida Albicans.
The unique design and fiber engineering allows the dressing to absorb exudate and transform into a cohesive sheet of gel.
Excellent absorption rate (36.4 g/100 cm2/24 hr) helps reduce the number of dressing changes, provides increase wear time (up to 7 days) and reduce the risk of maceration.
Exudate is absorbed vertically into the dressing and retained in a gel, whereby reducing the risk of maceration and damage to the periwound skin.
The unique quilting pattern supported by a hidden reinforcement layer aids with absorbency, tensile performance and intact removal of the dressing. The dressing is easily removed intact with minimal pain for the patient.
Allows for both effective and easy management of cavity wounds and supports moist wound environment which assists in the wound healing process.
Indicated for moderate to heavily exuding acute and chronic wounds. Suitable to use under compression bandaging. The dressing may be used throughout the healing process on:
- Pressure ulcers
- Venous leg ulcers
- Arterial leg ulcers
- Diabetic ulcers
- Graft and donor sites
- Post-operative surgical wounds
- Cavity wounds
- Superficial and partial thickness burns
