Moderate/Highly Exudating Wounds
Cleanse the wound using an appropriate wound cleanser. Remove Maxorb® ES Ag+ from the package and fill the wound with the dressing, leaving at least 1" outside of the wound for easy retrieval. Cover with an appropriate absorbent secondary dressing. Note: Maxorb® ES Ag+ may be cut if necessary. Discard unused product.
Maxorb® ES Ag+ may be left in place for up to 21 days, depending on wound condition and amount of drainage. Change when secondary dressing becomes saturated or begins to leak.
May be used with most secondary or cover dressings, such as Optifoam® Gentle silicone faced foam dressings.
