PolyMem Dressings - More Healing, Less Pain!
PolyMem Finger and Toe Dressing User Guide

How does PolyMem Silver Dressing Work?

  • Offers antimicrobial protection: High purity small silver particles are uniformly distributed throughout and bound into the PolyMem formulated membrane for maximum surface area and effectiveness. When PolyMem Silver finger and toe dressing is used on a wound, moisture and fluids in the wound bed are absorbed into the dressing, releasing silver ions, which protect the dressing from microbial contamination.
  • Provides continuous wound bed cleansing: In addition to silver, the PolyMem Silver membrane contains a clinically proven non-ionic, non-toxic, tissue-friendly cleansing agent that helps loosen necrotic tissue, slough, and other debris. 
  • Offers impressive wound wicking power: The hydrophilic polyurethane membrane matrix, containing a starch co-polymer, draws fluid and debris from the wound bed and swells into a non-adherent gel while providing super absorbance of fluids. As the exudate is being absorbed, the membrane matrix expands to fill and conform to wounds.
  • Encourages wound comfort and improved healing: Additionally, glycerol (also known as glycerin) help ensure non-adherence to the wound bed so that the dressing or filler can be removed without disturbing the wound bed. Glycerol also helps control odor while softening the non-viable tissue.
  • Provides both a liquid barrier and gas exchange: Except for the cavity filler, the membrane is also covered by a semi-permeable continuous film backing which is optimized for oxygen and moisture vapor permeability and as a barrier to liquids.

How To Use PolyMem Silver Finger/Toe Dressing?

Application Instructions:
  • Measure to determine the length of dressing needed, cut off the excess.
  • Remove the insert from the rolled end and discard.
  • Insert the finger into the rolled end of the PolyMem Silver finger and toe dressing.
  • Push the finger into the dressing and begin rolling.
  • Roll the dressing on the finger.
  • The dressing should fit securely on finger or toe.
  • Topical treatments are not recommended in conjunction with PolyMem dressings.

Dressing Change:
  • Change dressings before the wound fluid, visible through the dressing, reaches the wound margin. Change the dressing immediately if the wound fluid reaches the edge of the membrane pad. For mildly exudating wounds in otherwise healthy patients, dressing can be left on for a recommended maximum of seven days. As with other dressings, more frequent changes may be indicated if the patient has a compromised immune system, diabetes, or infection at the wound site.
  • Remove the dressing from the wound site. The PolyMem formulated pad will not adhere to the wound bed, usually assuring pain-free dressing changes.
  • Do not disturb the wound bed. Do not clean the wound bed or flush with saline or water unless the wound is infected or contaminated. PolyMem Silver finger and toe dressings contain a wound cleanser and leave no residue. Additional cleaning of the wound may injure regenerating tissue and delay wound healing. The intact skin around the wound may be cleansed while leaving the wound bed undisturbed.
  • Apply a new dressing.
