In addition to controlling bioburden, another key factor in wound healing is managing moisture level. SilvaSorb dressings are made of a special polymer that absorbs more than five times its weight in fluid. That's not only more that all other silver dressings, it's several times more than calcium alginates or similar absorptive products. This allows SilvaSorb to be left in place for longer periods of time compared to other wound dressings, even on heavily draining wounds. If the wound is dry, SilvaSorb can help. The dressings are 20% water, giving then the unique ability to donate moisture when needed. Advanced fluid management helps provide a moist wound healing environment for the full spectrum of wounds. SilvaSorb will not dry out a wound and it will not macerate the surrounding skin.
These sheets are ideal for flat wounds with moderate to heavy exudate. The sheets can be easily cut to fit any size or shape wound, and is able to control bioburden up to seven days. The sheet is self-activating. Sold in boxes or cases.
