Description

Silverlon Wound Contact Dressings are designed for placement directly on the wound surface in direct contact with the injured tissues. The wound dressing can be left in place for several days depending on the amount of wound drainage and necrotic (dead) tissue present. The Silverlon Wound Contact Dressing provides an antimicrobial barrier to the entry of bacteria and fungi, thereby protecting the wound from outside bacteria and fungi contamination. The 2″ x 2″, 4″ x 4.5″, 4″ x 12″, and 10″ x 12″ Silverlon Silver Wound Contact Dressings are currently available for consumer purchase from this website.

How To Use

Supplies Needed

  1. A Silverlon Wound Contact Dressing sized to fit into the wound bed and up onto ½″ (one-half inch) of normal skin around the wound. You may use either side of the dressing on the wound. (The Silverlon Wound Contact Dressing should last for up to 7 days if properly cared for as described below).
  2. A secondary cover dressing of choice to be placed over the Silverlon dressing. If needed, tape, Tubular Stretch Knit Dressing or compressive wrap dressings to hold the cover dressing in place.
  3. Sterile water or saline for wetting or rinsing Silverlon dressing when needed. 

Note: When using Silverlon Wound Pad Dressings, place silver side down onto wound.


Daily Care

Your goal is to keep your wound and the Silverlon dressing clean, moist, and covered. Recommend washing hands with warm water and soap before and after dressing change. The Silverlon wound dressing may be worn while showering unless otherwise directed by your physician or nurse. Please check with physician or nurse for exact showering directions. Soaking in a bathtub is not recommended.

Dressing Change For Exudating (Draining) Wounds

  1. Remove and dispose of the outer absorbent cover dressings when saturated, and either:
    1. Apply fresh cover dressings directly over the Silverlon dressing for up to 7 days OR
    2. Remove the Silverlon dressing and rinse with sterile water or saline, being sure to rinse away any exudate that maybe on the Wound Contact Dressing (you may stretch the dressing by its corners to open up its weave to help loosen the exudate from the cloth), gently squeeze out excess water, and reapply to wound while moist and then apply fresh cover dressing over the rinsed Silverlon Wound Contact Dressing.

For Dry Wounds

Add moisture (sterile water or saline) to the Silverlon dressing when dry. Tip: Check in the morning or at night, if dry to the touch, add sterile water or saline to the top of the dressing. Moistened gauze, foam, or hydrogels may be placed over the Silverlon dressing to help maintain moisture.


Additional Instructions:

Do not remove the Silverlon Wound Contact Dressing while dry or if Silverlon dressing is sticking. If sticking occurs, rewet and saturate the Silverlon dressing with sterile water or saline, waiting until it can easily be removed. If problems occur, including swelling, severe redness or sharply increased pain, contact your physician.
