More Information

  • Contra-Indications:
    - Silverlon should not be used on patients with known sensitivity to nylon or silver
  • General Guidelines for Use:
    - All Silverlon Wound and Burn Dressings are designed for up to 7 day use. Where protocols dictate more frequent wound inspection, the dressings may be taken down daily and Silverlon reapplied by rinsing the surface of the dressing with sterile water to remove excess exudate and cellular debris.
    - Wet dressing with sterile or clean water.
    - Apply directly to the wound bed overlapping the wound margins by 1cm to 2cm. Avoid use of petroleum based ointments or creams under the Silverlon dressing.
    - Optimal silver ion release rates from the surface of the Silverlon dressing is achieved by keeping the Silverlon dressing moist and free from excessive exudate buildup. Periodically check the edges of the dressing to insure that proper moisture levels are being maintained. Add water when necessary.
    - Cover the Silverlon burn dressing with a secondary dressing of choice.
    - When removing the Silverlon burn dressing, check to see if it is dry or is sticking to the wound bed. If sticking occurs, saturate the dressing with water and wait until it can be easily removed by gently lifting the corners.
