Argentum Silverlon Antimicrobial Wound Contact Dressing is designed for placement directly on the wound surface in direct contact with the injured tissues. It provides a topical antimicrobial surface that reduces the bacteria and fungi counts on the wound surface. The wound dressing can be left in place for several days depending on the amount of wound drainage and necrotic (dead) tissue present.

How do Silverlon Antimicrobial Dressings work?

  • Antimicrobial dressings lower the potential toxicity to host cells by giving out a continuous and uniform release of antimicrobial agents to the wound bed and lowering the concentration of microbial agents.
  • These dressings use antimicrobial agents like silver, iodine, or polyhexamethylene biguanide (PHMB) that are known to reduce microbial activities.
  • Antimicrobial dressings can be left in place for several days depending upon the wound drainage and the number of dead cells present.

What to buy with Silverlon Dressings


How to use Silverlon Antimicrobial Wound Contact Layer Dressing?

  • Cleanse the wound with sterile water, distilled water, or normal saline removing necrotic debris or eschar as needed per local protocol.
  • Select the dressing size that overlaps the wound margins by 1-2 cm.
  • Activate Silverlon Wound Contact Dressing by thoroughly moistening with sterile, distilled, or normal saline.
  • Position the Silverlon dressing directly over the wound, with either silver side in contact with the skin; secure the dressing in place using a secondary dressing per local protocol.
    • For exudating wounds, use an absorbent secondary dressing of choice.
    • Use a moisture-donating secondary dressing such as hydrocolloid or premoistened foam or gauze for dry wounds.
  • Periodically check the edges of the Silverlon dressing to ensure that it is moist.
  • Silverlon Wound Contact Dressing may be used for 7 days but may require more frequent changing depending on wound condition and exudate build-up.
  • To remove Silverlon Wound Contact Dressing, remove the outer secondary dressing per the local protocol and gently depress the surrounding skin while lifting the dressing edges.
    • If the dressing is sticking to the wound, moisten it as needed with sterile water, distilled water, or normal saline until it can be easily removed by gently lifting the corners.

How to store Silverlon Antimicrobial Wound Dressing?

  • Store Silverlon Wound Contact Dressing in normal warehouse conditions.
  • Keep dry.
  • Avoid excessive heat or humidity.
