How do Polymem Max Dressing Work?

  • Keeps the wound clean: Non Adhesive Dressing has a gentle cleaner that helps get rid of yucky stuff like dead tissue and other debris, so the wound stays nice and clean.
  • Pulls away ouchie stuff: The special foam in the dressing is like a magnet for liquid and debris in the wound. It turns into a gel that doesn't stick, which is good because it helps prevent more problems.
  • Makes the wound comfy and helps it heal: There's something called glycerol in the dressing that stops it from sticking to the wound. This makes it easy to take off without hurting the wound. Glycerol also helps control bad smells and softens the dead tissue.
  • Protects against liquids and lets in the air: The dressing has a layer that stops liquids from getting in and lets air pass through. It's like a barrier that keeps things out but still lets the wound breathe.


So, PolyMem Foam Dressings basically do a bunch of helpful things to keep wounds clean, comfortable, and on their way to healing.

How to use PolyMem Max Non-Adhesive Dressings?

Putting on the Dressing:

  • Get the wound ready, as your doctor says.
  • Pick a PolyMem Max pad that's a bit bigger than the wound (about 1/4 to 2 inches).
  • Put the dressing on with the film side or printed side facing out.
  • It's normal for more liquid to show up in the first few days – that means the dressing is doing its job. You can draw the wound's shape on the outside of the dressing to know when to change it.
  • Keep the dressing dry and in place when you bathe. Change it if it gets wet.
  • Don't use other treatments with PolyMem dressings.

Changing the Dressing:

  • Change the dressing before the liquid you can see through it reaches the edge of the wound.
  • Peel off the dressing gently from the middle.
  • The special pad won't stick to the wound, so taking it off shouldn't hurt.
  • Don't mess with the wound. Don't clean it unless it's infected. The dressing has a cleaner, and you don't want to slow down healing. You can clean the skin around the wound, though.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Silver Dressings Work?

Silver dressings release a special silver that fights germs on the wound. It does this based on how much liquid and bacteria are in the wound. So, silver dressings are like smart helpers for healing wounds.

How Often to Change PolyMem?

Change PolyMem dressings before the liquid reaches the edge of the wound or after a maximum of seven days. Your doctor will decide when it's best to change.

Putting on PolyMem Max?

  • Take off the old dress.
  • Clean the wound, the doctor says. Don't mess with the wound.
  • Put the new dressing on the wound.
  • If there's an infection, treat it the right way.
