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.
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.
