Choose a Silverlon® dressing that covers the wound bed and up to 1cm-2cm (1/2"-1") of normal skin around the wound. Moisten Silverlon® with clean water or saline and wring out excess. Place silver side down onto the wound. The effectiveness of the dressing is increased by wetting Silverlon®.
Remove and dispose of the outer absorbent cover dressings as necessary. Gently remove Silverlon®. If wound or dressing appears dry, add water or saline to the dressing. The dressing may be left in place for up to seven days.
For exudating wounds, cover with an appropriate absorbent dressing. For dry wounds, use with a moisture donating dressing, such as a hydrogel, pre-moistened foam or gauze, or other moisture control dressing.
