Melgisorb® Ag is an absorbent calcium alginate dressing with silver. Effective against a broad spectrum of microorganisms.
• High absorption for deep, heavily exuding wounds
• Provides sustained antimicrobial effect
• Protects the wound and promotes autolytic debridement
• High fiber strength allows one-piece removal
Melgisorb® Ag is indicated for use in the management of all moderately to heavily exuding partial- to full-thickness wounds, including post-operative wounds, trauma wounds (dermal lesions, trauma injuries or incisions), leg ulcers, pressure injuries, diabetic ulcers, graft and donor sites, cavity wounds and superficial and partial-thickness burns.
Burns (Superficial and Partial-Thickness)
Moderate/Highly Exudating Wounds
Non/Minimally Exudating Wounds
Skin Grafts and Donor Sites
Debride when necessary and irrigate the wound site in accordance with standard protocols. Remove excess solution from surrounding skin. Cut (using sterile scissors) or fold the dressing to fit the wound. Apply to wound bed directly. Loosely fill deep wounds, ensuring the dressing does not overlap the wound margins. Cover and secure Melgisorb® Ag with a non-occlusive secondary dressing.
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 Melgisorb® Ag when the secondary dressing has reached its absorbent capacity or whenever good wound care practice dictates that the dressing be changed.
To reapply, gently remove the secondary dressing. If the wound appears dry, saturate the dressing with normal sterile saline solution prior to removal. Gently remove the dressing from the wound bed and discard. If required, irrigate the wound site in accordance with standard protocols prior to application of a new dressing.
