McKesson Collagen Dressings with Silver are advanced, topically applied wound dressings that transform into cool, soothing gel upon contact with exudate. Silver chloride serves as an effective antimicrobial solution intended to reduce and prevent bacterial colonization within the wound dressing.
• Transforms into a soft gel sheet when in contact with wound exudate
• Maintains a moist environment at the wound surface to aid in the formation of granulation tissue and epithelialization
• Facilitates natural wound healing - EDTA and collagen target and deactivate elevated MMP activity; EDTA in the dressing removes zinc to inhibit the activity of matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) to create a suitable environment for wound healing
• Silver chloride serves as an effective antimicrobial solution intended to reduce and prevent bacterial colonization within the wound dressing
• Dressing may be cut to fit the wound size or layered to manage deep wounds
McKesson Collagen Dressings with Silver are indicated for management of full- and partial-thickness wounds including pressure injuries, diabetic ulcers, ulcers caused by mixed vascular etiologies, venous ulcers, donor and graft sites, abrasions, traumatic wounds healing by secondary intention, dehisced surgical wounds, and first- and second-degree burns.

Debride and irrigate the wound bed with an appropriate wound cleanser or distilled water before application. The use of saline may affect the efficacy of the silver.
Cut the dressing to fit the exact wound size. For heavily exuding wounds, apply the dressing directly to the wound bed. For dry wounds with very little exudate, moisten the wound bed with distilled water to begin the gelling process.
Cover the McKesson Collagen Dressings with Silver with an appropriate secondary dressing.
Change dressings daily or as good nursing practice dictates.
Cover with an appropriate secondary dressing depending on the amount of exudate and frequency of dressing change.
