How to use Systagenix Silvercel Non Adherent Alginate Dressings?

Dressing preparation
  • Cut (using clean scissors) non-adherent Dressing or fold the dressing to fit the wound
  • Ensure dressing does not overlap the wound margins

Dressing application
  • Gently apply dressing to the wound
  • Loosely pack deep wounds. As wound conditions improve and exudate levels decrease, moisten the dressing with normal saline solution prior to application

Secondary dressing application
  • Cover Dressing with a secondary dressing. Choose the secondary dressing based on the level of exudate.

Dressing change and removal
  • Gently remove the dressing from the wound bed and discard. If the wound appears dry, saturate the dressing with sterile saline solution prior to removal.
  • Dressing change frequency will depend on wound condition and the level of exudate. Reapply dressing when the secondary dressing has reached its absorbent capacity or according to good wound care practice.

As wound conditions improve and exudate levels decrease, it may be preferable to switch to a more appropriate dressing, or apply to saline moistened wound bed. The dressing performance may be impaired by excess use of petrolatum-based ointments.
  • Avoid contact with electrodes or conductive gels during electronic measurements, e.g. electrocardiograms (ECG) and electroencephalograms (EEG).
  • Do not use dressing on patients undergoing Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
  • Do not use dressing on pregnant or lactating women due to the absence of specific information.
  • 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.

Contraindications: Silvercel Dressing is not indicated for use on the following:
