Pain-Free Dressing Removal

   Removing wound dressings may cause discomfort for the patient, not to mention possible trauma to the wound.

   However, the Silvercel Non-Adherent antimicrobial dressing features a non-adherent layer that enables the dressing to control infection and minimize trauma with dressing changes, according to the product’s manufacturer Systagenix Wound Management.

   The company notes that the unique, non-adherent outer layer of the dressing provides gentle protection of the wound while allowing the unimpeded flow of exudate into the dressing. While the dressing conforms to the wound bed to ensure complete coverage when moist, the company says the dressings can be easily removed in one piece even as exudate levels reduce.

   Systagenix Wound Management says the Silvercel Non-Adherent dressing is effective against viruses, fungi and over 150 strains of clinically relevant microorganisms in vitro, including MRSA, MRSE and VRE.
