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.
Silverlon® Dressings should not be used on patients with 3rd degree burns or with known sensitivity to silver or nylon.
