When do I use it?
- Silvercel minimizes the risk of maceration and leakage and has been proven to absorb and retain fluid even under compression
- In vitro studies show that the level of silver released from Silvercel is maintained beyond 7 days
- Designed not to break up in the wound
- Silvercel maintains its strength within a moist wound environment
How do I use it?:
Preparation: Debride with wound is necesary and irrigate in accordance with standard wound management protocol.
Application: Fold or cut to the size of the wound and apply directly to the wound. Loosely pack deep wounds ensuring that the dressing does not overlap the edges of the wound. Secure in position with a non-occlusive secondary dressing like Tielle Hydropolymer Dressing.
Changing the Dressing: Dressing change frequency will depend on wound condition and the level of exudate. Initially it may be necessary to change the dressing every 24 hours.
Reapply Silvercel Hydro-Alginate Dressing when the secondary dressing has reached its absorbent capacity or whenever good wound care practice dictates that the dressing should be changed. Gently remove the secondary dressing. If the wound appears dry, saturate the dressing with normal saline solution prior to removal.
