Partial- and Full-Thickness Wounds
Choose a Silverlon® dressing that covers the wound bed and up to 1cm-2cm (1/2"-1") of normal skin around the wound. Place silver side down onto the wound.
Remove and dispose of secondary dressings. 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 seven days.
For exudating wounds, cover with an absorbent dressing of choice. For dry wounds, cover with a moisture donating dressing, such as but not limited to: hydrogel, pre-moistened foam or gauze, or another moisture control dressing.
