What to buy with Ferris PolyMem Silver Cavity Wound Filler

How do PolyMem WIC Wound Fillers Work?

  • Provide antimicrobial protection:When the PolyMem Silver formulation 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. It helps reduce the risk of damaging healthy cells within the wound. In tests for antimicrobial effectiveness using in vitro testing methods, PolyMem Silver formulation dressings killed at least 99.9% of the entire population of each organism tested.
  • Provide continuous wound bed cleansing: The membrane incorporates a mild, nonionic, nontoxic, tissue-friendly cleansing agent that helps maintain a clean wound bed by loosening necrotic tissue, slough, bioburden and other debris.
  • Offer impressive wound wicking power: The hydrophilic polymeric membrane matrix, which includes a superabsorbent starch copolymer, draws fluid and debris from the wound bed and swells into a non-adherent gel encapsulated inside the dressing. As the exudate is being absorbed, the membrane matrix expands about one-third to fill the wound cavity.
  • Encourage wound comfort and improved healing: Additionally, glycerol (also known as glycerin) helps assure non-adherence to the wound bed so that the dressing can be removed without disturbing the wound bed or causing pain. Glycerol also controls odor while supporting autolytic debridement.
