MELGISORB AG SILVER WOUND DRESSING
A product that inactivates wound pathogens with silver.
It can be in a foam, gel or an alginate. Depending of the amount of exudate different levels of absorbent are needed medium or high.The product can be without a border or with a border with the Safetac technology.
ANTIMICROBIAL / ALGINATE DRESSING – MELGISORB® AG
Superior absorbency for tougher conditions
When the risk of infection is high, Melgisorb® Ag is the choice. It absorbs up to 45% more exudate than the leading silver dressing and provides a sustained antimicrobial effect. Releasing silver ions in the presence of wound fluid, Melgisorb® Ag is also effective against a broad spectrum of microorganisms.
– Excellent absorption for deep, heavily exuding wounds
– Provides sustained antimicrobial effect
– Protects the wound and aids autolytic debridement, thereby facilitating wound healing
– High fiber strength allows removal in one piece
Areas of use
Melgisorb Ag is indicated for use in the management of all moderate to heavily exuding partial to full thickness wounds including: post-operative wounds, trauma wounds (dermal lesions, trauma injuries or incisions) leg ulcers, pressure injuries, diabetic ulcers, graft and donor sites, cavity wounds, superficial and partial thickness burns.
Melgisorb Ag may be used in the management of infected wounds or wounds in which there is an increased risk of infection under the medical supervision of a healthcare professional.
How to use
– Site Preparation
– Debride when necessary and irrigate the wound site in accordance with standard pro-tocols.
– Remove excess solution from surrounding skin.
– Dressing Application
– Cut (using sterile scissors) or fold the dressing to fit the wound.
– Apply to wound bed directly. Loosely fill deep wounds, ensuring the dressing does not overlap the wound margins.
– Cover and secure Melgisorb Ag with a non-occlusive secondary dressing.
Dressing Change and Removal
– Melgisorb Ag can remain in situ up to 7 days. 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 Melgisorb Ag when the secondary dressing has reached its absorbent capacity or whenever good wound care practice dictates that the dressing should be changed.
– To reapply, gently remove the secondary dressing.
– If the wound appears dry, saturate the dressing with normal sterile saline solution prior to removal.
– Gently remove the dressing from the wound bed and discard.
– If required, irrigate the wound site in accordance with standard protocols prior to application of a new dressing.
