• Perforated mylar film with absorbent core allows it to be used as primary dressing
• Contains PHMB (polyhexamethylene biguanide), a gentle but effective antiseptic
• PHMB destroys the cell wall, making resistance very unlikely
• Limits cross-contamination and reduces risk of infection
• Non-adherent for less painful dressing changes
• Resists bacterial penetration and colonization
• Highly effective against most organisms


Telfa® AMD™ Antimicrobial Dressings can be used as a primary dressing to minimize bacterial log counts in the wound bed, or as a secondary dressing to eliminate growth within the gauze and protect against bacterial proliferation through the gauze.

Warnings and Precautions

Dakin's Solution cleanser may inactivate PHMB. This will impact dressing efficacy but should not be dangerous to patient health.
