More Information

  • Contraindications:
    Tegaderm Ag Mesh Dressing with Silver should not be used on individuals that have a known hypersensitivity to silver or cotton. This product is not indicated for use as a surgical sponge or for use on third-degree burns. This product should not be used with enzymatic debriding agents that are contraindicated for use with silver products
  • Directions for Use:
    Follow facility guidelines for infection control.Before using the dressing: - Clip excess hair from around the wound if an adhesive cover dressing is to be used
    - Clean the wound and surrounding skin
    Note: If the skin around the wound is easily damaged or drainage is expected to go beyond the wound edge, a skin barrier film such as 3M Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film may be applied. Allow the barrier film to dry
    - Evaluate the wound and select the dressing size that will fit into the wound margins without overlap onto the surrounding skin. Tegaderm Ag Mesh Dressing with Silver may be cut or may be folded to fit within the wound margins. Discard any excess dressing not used at the time of dressing change
  • Precautions:
    Tegaderm Ag Mesh Dressing with Silver must be moist to release ionic silver and minimize adherence to the wound. When used on dry or minimally draining wounds, the dressing should be moistened prior to application
    - It is possible that the amount of drainage could decrease rapidly during dressing use. Non-woven material may adhere to the wound or site if allowed to dry, this may result in disruption of the wound or site upon removal. When using the dressing, the health care professional may want to change the dressing more frequently to maintain moisture of the dressing and observe the condition of the wound or site
    - If the dressing has dried and is adhered to the wound surface, saturate with sterile normal saline or sterile water, allow the dressing to soften, and gently remove
    - Consult a health care professional if any signs of infection are noted. Signs of infection may include: pain, redness, swelling, unusual odor or drainage, absent or delayed healing, or fever. This dressing may be used on infected wounds only under the care of a health care professional
    - If the wound does not begin to show signs of healing or if any other unexpected symptoms occur, consult a health care professional
    - For external use
    - Remove the dressing prior to MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) procedures
    - Avoid cutting the dressing into narrow strips; the dressing may be rolled for use in tunneled wounds which helps retain the tensile strength of the dressing
    - Clinicians/Healthcare Professionals should be aware that there are very limited data on prolonged and repeated use of silver-containing dressings, particularly in children and neonates
    - Do not reuse. Reuse may result in compromising product integrity and lead to device failure
  • Warning:
    Avoid use with iodophor containing products which may reduce the effectiveness of ionic silver
