Silver Dressings

Silver dressings are impregnated dressings with a solution of silver. Silver is proven to be anti-bacterial in nature and thus helps prevent the growth of bacteria. It breaks down the bacteria. The silver wound dressings or anti-bacterial dressings have been used since ages in some or the other form. They can either be coated in silver, incorporated with silver, or both. A combination of both coated and incorporated silver is recommended as it helps prevent bacteria from entering the wound as well as eliminate the bacteria that might have contaminated the wound site. The silver is impregnated in such a way that it is not absorbed by the body in any form. Minute amounts may be left inside the wound bed as residue but it is not harmful to the body in any way. At Shop Wound Care, we have a wide range of anti-bacterial silver dressings from top selling brands such as Medline, Smith & Nephew, Ferris Mfg, etc.
