Overview

Non-Adherence

EASYLIFT™ Precision Film Technology non-adherent wound contact layer.

EASYLIFT-Precision-Film-Technology

Antimicrobial Action

SILVERCEL™ NON-ADHERENT Dressing provides a sustained release of silver ions in vitro for up to 7 days.1 This can provide an effective antimicrobial barrier protection for the entire wear time, depending on exudate levels.

High Absorbency

The highly absorbent hydro-alginate component allows for effective exudate management.

How it Works

  • ABOUT
  • SPECIFICATIONS

SILVERCEL™ NON-ADHERENT Dressing provides effective antimicrobial protection, combined with EASYLIFT™ Precision Film Technology, promoting a favorable moist wound-healing environment.

The highly absorbent hydro-alginate component in SILVERCEL™ NON-ADHERENT Dressing allows for effective exudate management and helps maintain a moist wound environment beneficial to wound healing.2

Non-Adherence

-  EASYLIFT™ Precision Film Technology allows for:
-  Easy and pain-free removal1
-  Exudate absorption while minimizing adherence to the wound2,3
-  Effective protection of the newly formed tissue1
-  Intact removal minimising the risks of fibres shedding2

 

Antimicrobial Action

SILVERCEL™ NON-ADHERENT Dressing:

- Provides a sustained release of silver ions in vitro for up to 7 days4
- Is effective against a broad spectrum of wound pathogens including MSRA, MRSE and VRE (in vitro)
- Is an effective barrier to bacterial penetration (in vitro)

 

Absorbency

- Able to deal with moderate-to-heavily exuding wounds6
- Allows for effective exudate management and helps to maintain a moist wound environment beneficial to wound healing2

 

High Wet Tensile Strength

- The dressing’s structural properties allow for intact removal; minimizing the risks of the dressing adhering to the wound bed7 and shedding fibers8

SILVERCEL™ NON-ADHERENT Antimicrobial Alginate Dressing is a sterile, non-woven pad composed of a high G (guluronic acid) alginate, carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) and silver coated nylon fibres, laminated to a perforated, non-adherent ethylene methyl acrylate (EMA) wound contact layer.

The unique composition of the dressing manages exudates in moderate to heavily exuding wounds, which creates a favourable moist wound healing environment for effective wound management, and allows intact removal. The fibres kill a broad spectrum of microorganisms associated with the bacterial colonization and infection of wounds. Odour reduction results from the antibacterial effect in the dressing. 

 

Indications & Applications

  • INDICATIONS
  • APPLICATIONS
Specific indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions and safety information exist for KCI products and therapies. Healthcare providers should review the product User Manual, Safety Information and/or Instructions for Use prior to application.

SILVERCEL™ NON-ADHERENT Dressing is intended for the use in the management of all moderate to heavily exuding partial and full-thickness chronic and acute wounds including:
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Venous ulcers
  • Diabetic ulcers
  • Donor sites
  • Traumatic and surgical wounds

As the product contains alginate it may assist in supporting the control of minor bleeding in superficial wounds. It is also suitable for use, under medical supervision, in the management of infected wounds, or wounds in which there is an increased risk of infection

 
Directions for Use
Site Preparation
  • Debride when necessary and irrigate the wound site in accordance with standard 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
1. Cut or fold the dressing to fit the wound.
2. Loosely pack deep wounds ensuring the dressing does not overlap the wound margins. As wound conditions improve and exudate levels decrease, moisten the dressing with normal saline solution prior to application. 
3. Cover and secure SILVERCEL™ NON-ADHERENT Dressing with a non-occlusive secondary dressing such as one of the TIELLE™ Dressing Family, as appropriate.
 
Dressing Change and Removal
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. Gently remove the secondary dressing.
4. 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.
5. Irrigate the wound site in accordance with standard protocols prior to application of a new dressing.
 
Dressing 
Store at ambient temperature (<25°C / 77°F).
