Silvermed is a ready for use sterile island dressing with a central absorbent and non-adherent pad with silver ions. The pad has an antibacterial effect that uses silver advanced technology to promote healing in a moist controlled environment.
Silver is hydro-activated in a controlled manner by exudate. Silver ions are released in proportion to the amount of exudate and bacterial burden directly into the wound bed.
It creates a moist environment ideal for a rapid healing and acts as a barrier to bacterial penetration, preventing infection to the wound; Thanks to its metallic silver micronized and non-adherent layer it does not stick to the wound, making dressing change atraumatic.
Silvermed does not release silver residues.Controindications:
- There are no absolute contraindications for using Silvermed.
- Do not use for individuals with known sensitivity to any of the dressing components.
- Due to presence of antimicrobial silver ions, the experience with neonates/small babies is limited.
- Do not use on patients who are undergoing MRI.
