The Silverlon® Advantage Silverlon® is the most cost effective silver product on the market and is the most versatile. Silverlon® can be rinsed to remove excess exudate and reapplied for up to 7 day use.
Silverlon® Negative Pressure Dressings Award Winning Innovation Combine Silverlon® NPD with NPWT Accelerates Healing Potential. Proven in over 300 patient trials to enhance and accelerate granulation and wound closure by 20% to 40% vs. Conventional protocols. Reduces Overall Cost of NPWT. Wounds heal quicker, saving rental charges, kit costs, and nursing time. Lowers Infection. Proven in over 300 patient trials to lower the risk of the media re-infecting the wound bed.
Silverlon® Negative Pressure Dressings Award Winning Innovation Combine Silverlon® NPD with NPWT: (Continued ) Reduces Foam Sticking to the Wound. Silverlon® not only reduces the incidence of foam adhering to the granulation bed, but it also eliminates the need to pick the foam out of the wound. Safe and Easy to Use. Silverlon® is not known to interact with any drug and is bactericidal to all clinically relevant pathogens. It will not shed metallic silver into tissue, nor will it tattoo or stain the skin.
Silverlon® Negative Pressure Dressings Sustained Strength & Easy to Use
Silverlon® Negative Pressure Dressings Simple Technique Means Easy to Use
Silverlon® Negative Pressure Dressings Professional Guidelines For Use Moisten dressing with sterile or clean water. Saline may be used for irrigation, but should be avoided as the primary wetting agent. Apply either side of dressing in direct contact with wound bed and walls, and overlap wound edges onto healthy skin. Cover Silverlon® NPD with negative pressure foam or fill media ( if using Versatile 1) and drape per manufacturers instructions. Change Silverlon® NPD when you change foam or fill media. Silverlon® NPD may be used for up to 7 days.
Silverlon® Negative Pressure Dressings Frequently Asked Questions Can these dressings handle highly exudative wounds ? The unique dual flow ports allow for rapid fluid passage into the media, making it an ideal dressing over highly exudative wounds, with or without the use of NPWT. Can these dressings be rinsed and reused ? Based on professional discretion, all these dressings may be rinsed and reused, provided they are substantially free of debris and exudate. Can these dressings also be used without negative pressure therapy ? Absolutely, simply follow Silverlon® wound contact protocol. See dressing package for Indications and Caution.
