Silverlon dressings provide a sustained release of silver ions within the dressing, capable of eradicating MRSA in four hours and Pseudomonas in less than two.

When activated by moisture, silver ions are released in the dressing, providing the immediate antimicrobial activity as well as a protective barrier against a broad spectrum of pathogens including MRSA and Pseudomonas. And, the antimicrobial activity remains effective for up to seven days.
Silverlon uses a unique silver plating process that employs more pure metallic silver in the dressing than any other silver-based dressing. Typically up to 100 times more than the leading impregnated dressings and 5 times more than crystalline silver dressings.
This high concentration of pure silver provides a large reservoir of deliverable silver ions within the dressing, when activated and applied to the wound.
Silverlon Island Wound Dressings and Silverlon Wound Pad Dressings are multi-layer, sterile, non-adherent, antimicrobial barrier wound dressings.
Local management of superficial wounds, minor burns, abrasions and lacerations.
Under the supervision of a healthcare professional Silverlon Island Wound Dressings and Silverlon Wound Pad Dressings are intended for up to 7 day use for wounds such as vascular access or peripheral IV sites, orthopedic external pin sites, wound drain sites, surgical wounds (donor and graft sites, incisions), and partial to full thickness dermal ulcers (stage I-IV pressure sores, venous stasis ulcers, arterial ulcers, diabetic ulcers).
Silverlon Island Wound Dressings and Silverlon Wound Pad Dressings are indicated for the management of infected wounds, as the silver in the dressing provides an antimicrobial barrier that may be helpful in managing these wounds. In addition the moist wound healing environment and control of wound bacteria within the Silverlon Island Wound Dressing and Silverlon Wound Pad Dressing may help reduce the risk of wound infection and support the body’s healing process.
Silverlon Island Wound Dressings and Silverlon Wound Pad Dressings may be used for the management of painful wounds, Silverlon Island Wound Dressings and Silverlon Wound Pad Dressing’s non-adherent wound contact layer reduces pain during dressing changes and evaporation of moisture in the dressing may soothe the wound.
