CATEGORY

BIOTRONIX HEALTHCARE, Silver Alginate Dressing is composed of calcium alginate which is derived from seaweed through a series of special process and silver particles. It is designed to be fast absorbing. The dressing absorbs exudates and forms a gel-like covering over the wound, maintaining a moist environment for wound healing and keeps the dressing from adhering to the wound.

 

The most fascinating aspect of the dressing is restraining the bacteria growth and reducing infection.

 

Indications

• Infected chronic wounds

• Moderate to heavily draining wounds

• Cavity wounds

• Pressure ulcers

• Diabetic ulcers

• Venous / arterial leg ulcers

• Graft and donor sites

• Post-surgical wounds

Tips for using Sliver Dressing

 

• Conduct a comprehensive assessment of the patient, wound and environment before deciding whether a silver dressing is appropriate;

• Document the rationale for using a silver dressing in the patient’s healthcare records;

• Choose the silver dressing on the basis of patient and wound needs, ie exudate level, wound depth, need for conformability, odour control, ease of removal and safety;

• For infected wounds, initial use should be for a two week challenge;

• Continued use of silver dressings should include regular review;

• Use silver dressings in the context of a wound management protocol that includes wound bed preparation as appropriate for the wound type;

• Follow manufacturer’s instructions regarding indications, contraindications, method of application, wound cleansing procedures, need for dressing moistening before application, and use in patients undergoing MRI or radiotherapy;

• Use silver dressings with caution in children and very large wounds;
