Medline Maxorb Extra Ag Silver Alginate Antimicrobial Flat Rope Wound Dressing is ideal for tunneling or undermining wounds. It is a highly absorbent wound dressing that provides an antibacterial barrier to fight the bacteria absorbed in the wound exudate. CMC fiber present in the dressing helps improve vertical wicking, fluid handling ability as well as wet strength. When wound exudate gets mixed with Maxorb Extra Ag, a gel is formed, which will not wick out laterally and will reduce the potential for damage to the peri wound skin.

Product Highlights:

  • Highly absorbent: Maxorb Extra Ag absorbs more than other alginate or absorbent silver dressings
  • Sustained antimicrobial protection: Maxorb Extra Ag Antimicrobial Dressing is effective for up to 21 days
  • Fluid will not wick laterally: When wound exudate mixes with the dressing, it forms a gel that will not wick out, reducing the potential for damage to the peri wound skin
  • Superior gelling and fluid handling: CMC fiber in Maxorb Extra Ag Dressing helps improve the vertical wicking, fluid handling and wet strength
  • Reduces odor: Odor in wounds is caused by bacteria and by providing an antibacterial barrier to combat bacteria absorbed in the wound exudates it can be reduced
  • One piece removal: High wet and dry integrity means easy one-piece removal

Key Benefits:

  • Up to 21-day antimicrobial protection
  • Helps manage bacterial burden with controlled-release ionic silver
  • Reduces odor
  • Easy dressing changes
  • Highly absorbent
  • No lateral wicking of fluid
  • Cost-effective

Continuous-Release Ionic Silver For Antimicrobial Protection:

Key factor in helping a wound to heal is reducing the bioburden in it. If too many body resources are devoted just to fight invaders, only fewer resources will be available to help the body heal itself.

Silver has been known as an antimicrobial, but it has two inherent weaknesses: it can be cytotoxic and body metabolizes it quickly. Maxorb Extra Ag Flat Rope Dressing releases silver in extremely small amounts that will not damage the healthy tissue. Yet it still acts as an extremely effective antimicrobial.

Maxorb Extra Ag Dressing is seeded with an ionic silver compound known as silver sodium hydrogen zirconium phosphate. Ionic silver compound is an unusual compound as it is activated by sodium and not by water. Continuous release of silver ions is stimulated by the exposure to the sodium in wound exudate, providing antimicrobial protection over a broad spectrum of bacteria and fungi, including VRE and MRSA. Maxorb Extra Ag is non-irritating, non-sensitizing, biocompatible and will not harm new granulation tissues.

CMC fibers For Extra Absorbency And Strength:

Superb Blend of non-woven alginate and carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) fiber is more absorbent than other alginate dressings. As wound fluid is absorbed by the alginate, it forms a gel and assists in maintaining an optimal moist wound healing environment. Added presence of CMC improves the gelling and fluid handling ability and adds up improved wet strength. It also allows intact, one-piece removal.

Indications:

  • Partial to full thickness wounds
  • Moderate to heavily exudating wounds
  • Diabetic ulcers
  • Trauma wounds
  • Post-operative wounds
  • Leg ulcers
  • Graft and donor sites
  • Pressure ulcers
  • 1st and 2nd degree burns

More On Maxorb Extra Ag Silver Alginate Dressing

Contraindications:

  • Dry or lightly exudating wounds
  • Individuals with a known sensitivity to alginates or silver
  • To control heavy bleeding
  • Surgical implantation

Change Frequency:

  • Dressing change frequency will depend on wound condition and the level of exudates
  • Initially it may be necessary to change the dressing every 24 hours
  • Maxorb Extra Ag may be left in place for up to 21 days

Recommended Secondary Dressings:


Modified Asepsis Index:

Asepsis index is a measure of 10 wound healing parameters. A lower score is preferable.

How does it reduce odor?

Odor in wounds is primarily caused by bacteria, and so by providing an antibacterial barrier to combat bacteria absorbed in the wound exudate, odor is reduced.

CMC fibers provide extra absorbency and strength. 

As wound fluid is absorbed by the alginate, it forms a gel, which assists in maintaining a moist environment for optimal wound healing. Plus, it allows intact, one-piece removal. 

The added presence of CMC improves the gelling and fluid handling ability as well as adding improved wet strength.

Maxorb Extra Ag is seeded with an ionic silver compound called silver sodium hydrogen zirconium phosphate. This ionic silver compound is unusual because it is activated by sodium and not by water. Exposure to the sodium in wound exudate stimulates the continuous release of silver ions. As more fluid is absorbed over time, more silver ions are released, creating a controlled-release antimicrobial effect. 

The silver ions protect from a broad spectrum of microorganisms, including MRSA and VRE. Plus Maxorb Extra Ag releases silver extremely small amounts that do not damage healthy tissue. 

Maxorb Extra Ag is biocompatible, non-irritating, non-sensitizing and will not harm new granulation tissue.
