Silverlon Negative Pressure Dressings (NPD) are designed to be used with Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) systems. Applied in direct contact with the wound surface, the antimicrobial surface with flow ports allows exudate and wound debris to pass freely into the NPWT dressing placed above it.
INDICATION FOR USE:
The Silverlon Antimicrobial Wound Contact Negative Pressure Dressing and the Silverlon Antimicrobial Wound Contact Negative Pressure Dressings are used as the primary wound contact layer for NPWT dressing sets and is placed under reticulated foam, gauze, or other wound fillers.
Silverlon Antimicrobial Wound Contact Negative Pressure Dressing and the Silverlon Antimicrobial Wound Contact Negative Pressure Dressing are intended to provide moist wound environment and are used for the management of chronic, acute, surgical, traumatic, sub-acute and dehisced wounds, ulcers (such as pressure or diabetic), partial-thickness burns, flaps and grafts; when used in conjunction with an NPWT pump that is intended to be used for negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT), the NPWT system is indicated for patients who benefit from wound management therapy via the application of negative pressure wound therapy for removal of fluids and excess exudates, infectious material, and tissue debris which may promote wound healing. It provides a non-adherent, conformable, antimicrobial barrier and may help reduce infection when placed under reticulated foam, gauze, or other wound fillers. Silverlon® Fenestrated Wound Contact Dressings may be cut or overlapped to fit any wound size.
Silverlon Dressings should not be used on patients with 3rd degree burns or with known sensitivity to silver or nylon.
