SilverlonŽ antimicrobial silver-plated dressings provide 50-100xs more silver than other silver-based antimicrobial dressings, and Silverlon's efficacy is supported by multiple independent, peer-reviewed and published clinical studies. These studies suggest SilverlonŽ Dressings can be an important element in wound care and that control of wound bacteria within the dressing may help reduce the risk of infection.
About SilverlonŽ SilverlonŽ wound dressings have a permanently plated metallic surface, which provides the antimicrobial benefits of silver in the dressing without staining the skin and without increasing bioburden. Silverlon was originally developed for the U.S. military, where it is still extensively used for management of burn and blast injuries. SilverlonŽ dressings are used today by surgeons and other healthcare professionals around the world on surgical wounds, in negative pressure wound therapy, on chronic wounds, burns, skin grafts, and IV and catheter-related wounds.
SilverlonŽ Island Wound Dressings and SilverlonŽ Wound Pad Dressings are indicated for the management of infected wounds, as the silver in the dressing provides an antimicrobial barrier that may be helpful in managing these wounds. In addition, the moist wound healing environment and control of wound bacteria within the SilverlonŽ Island Wound Dressing and SilverlonŽ Wound Pad Dressing may help reduce the risk of wound infection and support the body's healing process. SilverlonŽ Island Wound Dressings and SilverlonŽ Wound Pad Dressing's non-adherent wound contact layer reduces pain during dressing changes and evaporation of moisture in the dressing may soothe the wound.
