Silvercel Non Adherent Features

Easylift Precision Film Technology allows for:
  • Easy and pain-free removal 
  • Exudate absorption while minimizing adherence to the wound 
  • Effective protection of the newly formed tissue

Antimicrobial Action 
  • Provides a sustained release of silver ions in vitro for up to 7 days 
  • Effective against a broad spectrum of wound pathogens (in vitro)
  • Effective barrier to bacterial penetration (in vitro)

  • Able to deal with moderate-to-heavily exuding wounds 
  • Allows for effective exudate management and helps to maintain a moist wound environment beneficial to wound healing

High Wet Tensile Strength
  • The dressing’s structural properties allow for intact removal; minimizing the risks of the dressing adhering to the wound bed and shedding fibers

Indications Of Using Silvercel Non Adherent Dressing:

Silvercel Dressing is an effective barrier to bacterial penetration. The barrier functions of the systagenix dressing may help reduce infection in moderate to heavily exuding partial and full-thickness wounds including:
  • Pressure injuries 
  • Venous ulcers 
  • Diabetic ulcers 
  • Donor sites 
  • Traumatic and surgical wounds

How To Use Silvercel Alginate Dressing?

Directions for Use:
Site Preparation
  • Debride when necessary and irrigate the wound site in accordance withstandard protocols.
  • Remove excess solution from surrounding skin

Dressing Selection:
  • Select a size of Silvercel Non-Adherent Dressing that is slightly larger than the wound.

Dressing Application:
  • Cut or fold the dressing to fit the wound. 
  • Loosely pack deep wounds ensuring the dressing does not overlap the wound margins. 
  • For heavily exuding wounds, apply to wound bed directly. For wounds with minimal exudate, apply to saline moistened wound bed. Cover and secure Silvercel Alginate Dressing with a non-occlusive secondary dressing.

Dressing Change and Removal:
  • Dressing change frequency will depend on wound condition and the level of exudate. Initially it may be necessary to change the dressing every 24 hours. 
  • Reapply Silvercel Non- adherent dressing when the secondary dressing has reached its absorbent capacity or whenever good wound care practice dictates that the dressing should be changed. 
  • Gently remove the secondary dressing. 
  • Gently remove the dressing from the wound bed and discard. If the wound appears dry, saturate the dressing with sterile saline solution prior to removal. 
  • Irrigate the wound site in accordance with standard protocols prior to application of a new dressing.

  • Store at ambient temperature (<25°C / 77°F).

Silvercel Dressing is not indicated for use on the following:
  • Third-degree burns
  • Patients with a known sensitivity to alginates, ethylene methyl acrylate (EMA) or silver
  • Surgical implantation 
  • To control heavy bleeding.

As wound conditions improve and exudate levels decrease, it may be preferable to switch to a more appropriate dressing, or apply to saline moistened wound bed. The dressing performance may be impaired by excess use of petrolatum-based ointments.
  • Avoid contact with electrodes or conductive gels during electronic measurements, e.g. electrocardiograms (ECG) and electroencephalograms (EEG).  
  • Do not use dressing on patients undergoing Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).  
  • Do not use dressing on pregnant or lactating women due to the absence of specific information. 
  • Clinicians/Healthcare Professionals should be aware that there are very limited data on prolonged and repeated use of silver containing dressings, particularly in children and neonates.
