The Aquacel ribbon dressing from ConvaTec has a combination of hydrofiber technology with ionic silver which makes the dressing highly absorbent, along with favorable gelling characteristics and broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity.
The Optifoam silver sacral foam dressing is conformable and can manage repeated bacteria introduction. Its waterproof outer layer protects wound and keeps bacteria out and moisture vapor transmission rate (MVTR) adjusts to fluid level. The Allevyn dressing from Smith & Nephew prevents healing tissue from growing into the dressing thus reducing pain on removal and maintaining a moist wound interface. It promotes rapid wound closure, reduced risk of maceration and provides an effective barrier to bacteria penetration.
Health Products for You offers a huge range of antimicrobial silver alginate dressing that helps promote wound healing by generating and promoting a moist environment. These products are from top-selling manufactures like Medline Industries, Ferris, Smith & Nephew, and many more.

Silver is utilized in dressings because of its antibacterial properties. It is very effective in healing infected wounds. Silver dressings are used in the treatment of burns and chronic wounds, particularly over wounds where the infection has set in leading to delayed healing. Silver counters the increase in issues of antibiotic resistance and acts as an effective agent for treating colonized and infected wounds.
Silver dressings are recommended:
Silver dressings are potent antimicrobials. The active silver ions in the dressing kill microbes immediately by blocking the respiratory enzymes but remaining non-toxic to human tissues. Silver dressings reduce a wound’s bio-burden, treat local infection and prevent systematic spread. It inhibits the bacterial DNA procedure of replication and the molecular make-up of silver stops most bacteria from creating chemical bonds. Working at a molecular level, silver is able to stop several superbugs and bacterial strains.
Silver foam dressing is a non-adhesive dressing with an antimicrobial barrier that uses advanced moist wound technology for healing with silver as the most crucial ingredient. The silver technology combines sustained antibacterial activity for preventing infection as well as providing a moist wound healing environment.
