Silver Bordered Foam Dressings are made of a polyurethane foam, polyvinyl alcohol, silver sulfate and silver chloride. The dressings are highly absorbent and contain 0.40mg/cm of ionic silver as the active component.
The dressing provides an optimal moist healing environment combining an effective antibacterial activity in the dressing with exudate management and physical protection from pressure injury.
The dressing has broad spectrum antibacterial effects covering for both Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria. It has been shown to have 4 log reduction of bacterial load, which is equivalent to a 99.99% reduction for up to 7 days in vitro against the following bacteria: Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes, Enterococcus faecalis, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

- Silver Foam Dressings can stay in place for up to 7 days, frequency of dressing changes will depend on the amount of wound drainage/exudate.

What is a Foam Dressing?
Foam dressings are absorbent, non-adherent padded wound dressings that absorb moisture and provide a barrier from environmental contaminants while protecting intact skin from damage related to pressure and friction.
Foam dressings are made up of fibers with small open cells that form an absorbent, sponge-like material. These open cells draw up drainage and debris from the wound bed, promoting a moist healing environment for natural healing.
Foam dressings are non-adherent and provide thermal insulation while acting as a protective cushion over the healing wound bed. These dressings allow water vapor across the surface of the wound, but block fluids, bacteria, and other contaminants from entering.
