  2. Molnlycke Melgisorb Ag Silver Alginate Dressing 10x10cm

Product Description:

Melgisorb Ag is a highly absorbent, sterile, non woven, antimicrobial pad composed of a high G (guluronic acid) calcium alginate, carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), and an ionic silver complex (Silver Sodium Hydrogen Zirconium Phosphate) which releases silver ions in the presence of wound exudate. As wound exudate is absorbed the alginate forms a gel, which aids autolytic debridement, whilst maintaining a moist environment for optimal wound healing. The gel ensures intact removal, without damage to healing tissue. The silver ions released in the presence of wound exudate are an effective antimicrobial agent against a broad spectrum of microorganisms frequently associated with the bacterial colonisation and infection of wounds, for up to twenty-one (21) days, based on in-vitro testing. Melgisorb Ag can also reduce the odour of infected wounds as a result of its effective antimicrobial properties. Melgisorb Ag is an effective barrier to penetration by microorganisms.

 

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 ulcers
  • Diabetic ulcers
  • Graft and donor sites
  • Cavity wounds
  • Superficial and partial thickness burns

As the Melgisorb Ag contains alginate, it may assist in supporting the control of minor bleeding in superficial wounds. This product can also be used under compression bandages. 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. Melgisorb Ag is indicated for external use only.
