Choose a Silverlon® dressing that covers the wound bed and up to 1cm-2cm (1/2"-1") of normal skin around the wound. Moisten Silverlon® with clean water or Saline and wring out excess. Place silver side down onto the wound. The effectiveness of the dressing is increased by wetting Silverlon®.
Remove and dispose of the outer absorbent cover dressings as necessary. Gently remove Silverlon®. If wound or dressing appears dry, add water or saline to the dressing. The dressing may be left in place for up to 7 days.
For exudating wounds, cover with an appropriate absorbent dressing. For dry wounds, use with a moisture donating dressing, such as a hydrogel, pre-moistened foam or gauze, or other moisture control dressing.
