ACTISORB Silver 220 Dressing is a sterile primary dressing, comprised of activated charcoal cloth, impregnated with silver, within a spun bonded nylon envelope. Within the dressing, there is 220 mg silver per 100 g activated charcoal cloth equating to 33 µg of silver per square centimeter of cloth.
Combining broad-spectrum antimicrobial action with bacterial toxin management and odor control, ACTISORB Silver 220 Dressing may help reduce infection in partial and full-thickness wounds such as pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, diabetic ulcers, first- and second-degree burns, donor sites and surgical wounds. ACTISORB Silver 220 Dressing should not be used on third-degree burns.
ACTISORB Silver 220 wound dressing has embedded silver particles to kill bacteria and fungi, while a highly porous activated charcoal layer binds toxins and odor-causing molecules. Exudate is allowed to flow freely through to a secondary absorbent dressing. The outer nylon sleeve of the ACTISORB Silver 220 wound dressing facilitates removal with minimal adherence to the wound.
ACTISORB Silver 220 Dressing is suitable for use under compression bandaging.
ACTISORB Silver 220 should not be cut, otherwise particles of activated charcoal may get into the wound and cause discoloration. The dressing performance may be impaired by excess use of petrolatum based ointments.
