Ferris PolyMem WIC Silver Cavity Wound Filler is specially designed for cavity wounds with the addition of small particle silver to protect from microbial contamination. It expands within the wound cavity to fill dead space, keeping the wound bed clean and moisturized while absorbing excess fluid. As this is a wound filler, to be used only as a primary dressing, this configuration comes without the thin film backing.

PolyMem WIC Silver Cavity Filler Key Points:

  • Hydrophilic polymeric membrane matrix with pre-slit, perforated design
  • Easily separates into three 1" wide strips to accommodate wound size
  • Expands about one-third within the wound cavity to fill dead space
  • Effectively cleanses, fills, absorbs and moistens wounds
  • Used on wounds with shallow depths

PolyMem WIC Silver Cavity Wound Filler Features

  • Fast Super Absorbent Wicking:
    - Quickly absorbs and holds up to 10 times weight
    - Facilitates management of cavity wounds
    - Expands up to one-third as wound fluid is absorbed
    - Should be cut one-third smaller than the wound, because it will expand when it absorbs wound exudates
    - Soft and pliable, conforming to wound shape
  • Non-Adherent:
    - Will not stick to the wound bed while maintaining the integrity of healing tissue
    - Will not dehydrate wound bed
    - Easy, pain-free application and removal
    - Use any of the other appropriate PolyMem or Shapes by PolyMem configurations as a secondary dressing to cover the wound filler
  • Continuous Cleansing:
    - Reduces the need to cleanse wound bed during dressing changes
    - Minimizes pain and disruption of newly forming tissues often associated with wound bed cleansing
  • Moisture Balancing:
    - Polymeric membrane establishes and maintains a clean and moisturized wound bed
    - Moisture-balancing actions of the PolyMem WIC Silver cavity wound filler are able to absorb impressive amounts of moisture and deliver moisture as demanded by the exposed tissues in the wound
  • Wide Range of Application:
    - Can be cut to size
    - Will donate moisture or absorb exudate, depending on the condition of the wound bed and fluid level in the dressing
    - Relieves wound pain and reduces the spread of inflammation into surrounding uninjured tissues without interfering with the robust localized inflammatory response required for healing
    - Clinician can add sterile water or saline to make the dressing a faster moisture donor or can allow the dressing to draw fluid to the site as it absorbs fluid into it
    - Used on wounds with shallow depths in combination with other secondary dressings in order to increase absorption
    - Helps relieve wound pain and improve comfort
    - Small particle silver provides an antimicrobial reservoir in the dressing
  • Cost Effective:
    - Saves time and supplies by usually eliminating the need to cleanse the wound bed during dressing changes
    - Dressing changes are easy - remove old PolyMem WIC Silver cavity filler dressing and apply new
    - Removes intact - no flushing or rinsing of debris is usually necessary
    - Saves time and money by often reducing the number of dressing changes while extending the time between changes
  • PolyMem dressings can effectively replace common categories of cavity dressings, which include:
    - Alginates
    - Hydrogels
    - Foams
    - Gauze

What to buy with Ferris WIC Silver Cavity Wound Filler


How do PolyMem WIC Wound Fillers work?

  • Provide antimicrobial protection: When the PolyMem Silver formulation is used on a wound, moisture and fluids in the wound bed are absorbed into the dressing, releasing silver ions, which protect the dressing from microbial contamination. It helps reduce the risk of damaging healthy cells within the wound. In tests for antimicrobial effectiveness using in vitro testing methods, PolyMem Silver formulation dressings killed at least 99.9% of the entire population of each organism tested.
  • Provide continuous wound bed cleansing: The membrane incorporates a mild, nonionic, nontoxic, tissue-friendly cleansing agent that helps maintain a clean wound bed by loosening necrotic tissue, slough, bioburden and other debris.
  • Offer impressive wound wicking power: The hydrophilic polymeric membrane matrix, which includes a superabsorbent starch copolymer, draws fluid and debris from the wound bed and swells into a non-adherent gel encapsulated inside the dressing. As the exudate is being absorbed, the membrane matrix expands about one-third to fill the wound cavity.
  • Encourage wound comfort and improved healing: Additionally, glycerol (also known as glycerin) helps assure non-adherence to the wound bed so that the dressing can be removed without disturbing the wound bed or causing pain. Glycerol also controls odor while supporting autolytic debridement.

PolyMem WIC Silver Dressing Indications:

PolyMem WIC Silver cavity wound fillers work on the following types of wounds:
  • Pressure ulcers (Stages III-IV)
  • Vascular ulcers
  • Diabetic ulcers
  • Acute wounds
