The surface of every Silverlon dressing is plated with pure silver that is in direct contact with the patient. Containing up to 100 times the silver of some silver impregnated dressings, Silverlon holds a large reservoir of silver ions for antimicrobial action. Yet Silverlon will never stain the skin. And clinical professionals can be confident that they are choosing a dressing backed by multiple clinical studies, making Silverlon the evidence-based choice.
Silverlon Island Wound Dressings and Silverlon Wound Pad Dressings are multi-layer, sterile, non-adherent, antimicrobial barrier wound dressings.
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.
