Cover with an appropriate absorbent secondary dressing. Note: Maxorb® ES Ag+ may be cut if necessary. Discard unused product.

Removal & Change Frequency

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.
