DURAFIBER* Ag is a highly absorbent, non-woven, silver containing antimicrobial gelling fiber dressing that absorbs excess fluid while providing a moist environment. The ionic silver in the dressing provides antimicrobial activity against a broad spectrum of common wound pathogens.
• Clean one piece removal
• Effective fluid management
• Comfortable gel matrix with minimal shrinkage
• Minimal nursing time for dressing changes
• Up to 7 day wear time
• Sustained antimicrobial activity (in vitro)
• May help reduce associated costs of infection
DURAFIBER* Ag Silver Gelling Fiber Dressings are indicated for chronic and acute, partial- or full-thickness or shallow granulating exuding wounds including: leg ulcers, pressure injuries, diabetic ulcers, surgical wounds, wounds left to heal by secondary intent, donor sites, tunneling and fistula wounds, partial-thickness burns, traumatic wounds, and wounds that are prone to bleeding, such as wounds that have been surgically or mechanically debrided.
Do not use on patients with a known sensitivity to silver. Do not use on non-exuding wounds.
While DURAFIBER* Ag assists in the management of wounds prone to bleeding, it is not intended to be used as a surgical sponge in heavily bleeding wounds. If reddening or sensitization occurs discontinue use. DURAFIBER* Ag is not compatible with oil-based products such as petrolatum. Avoid contact with electrodes or conductive gels during electronic measurements (eg, EEG and ECG). Ensure that packing in cavities, sinuses, etc has been removed. The dressing may not be compatible with topical antimicrobials. In the event of clinical infection, topical silver does not replace the need for systemic therapy or other adequate infection treatment. When DURAFIBER* Ag is used on a patient during MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) examination, some warming may be experienced. DURAFIBER* Ag may cause transient discoloration of the surrounding skin.
Cleanse the wound according to local clinical protocol. Select the appropriate dressing size. Remove the DURAFIBER* Ag Dressing from pack, using a clean technique. Cut to shape if necessary. Apply the dressing to the wound and allow for a 1cm ((1/3)") dressing overlap onto the skin surrounding the wound. When using DURAFIBER* Ag in deep cavity wounds, use whole dressing where possible and leave at least 2(1/2)cm (1") of each piece outside the wound for easy retrieval. Loosely pack deep wounds up to 80%, as the DURAFIBER* Ag Dressing will expand on contact with wound fluid. Secure DURAFIBER* Ag Dressings with a moisture retentive dressing such as ALLEVYN* LIFE or ALLEVYN* Gentle Border.
The dressing can be removed in one piece using sterile tweezers, forceps or a gloved hand. During the early stages of wound management, DURAFIBER* Ag Dressings should be inspected frequently. Dressings can be left undisturbed for up to 7 days or changed when clinically indicated, (eg, if leakage, excessive bleeding is present). Local clinical protocol should also be taken into consideration. The dressing may adhere if used on lightly exuding wounds. If the dressing is not easily removed, moisten or soak the dressing to assist removal and avoid disruption of the healing wound.
