Removal & Change Frequency

Dressing change frequency will depend on wound condition and the level of exudate. Initially it may be necessary to change the dressing every 24 hours. Reapply Biatain® Alginate Ag Dressing with Silver when the secondary dressing has reached its absorbent capacity or whenever good wound care practice dictates the dressing should be changed.
