UrgoCell™ Ag is a sterile, non-occlusive antimicrobial absorbent dressing with semipermeable backing. Incorporates TLC™ Technology for virtually pain-free dressing removal.
• Semi-permeable backing allows for favorable moisture vapor transfer rate and helps preserve wound margins
• Exudate passes through contact layer into absorbent foam
• Releases silver as exudate is absorbed into the dressing
• Vertical absorption of exudate reduces maceration
• Antimicrobial action reduces risk of infection
• Non-adhesive with reduced pain removal
• May be used under compression bandages
• Minimizes damage to newly forming skin
The barrier functions of UrgoCell™ Ag and TLC™ Technology may help reduce infection in moderately to highly exuding partial- and full-thickness wounds including partial-thickness burns, pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, diabetic ulcers and graft and donor sites.
Contraindicated for use on individuals with a known sensitization to silver and/or other dressing components.
Concomitant use of other topical antimicrobial agents is not recommended.
Use in pregnant or breast-feeding women and newborns has not been studied.
Do not reuse the dressing.
Store flat and at room temperature.

Moderate/Highly Exudating Wounds
Clean the wound using sterile saline solution or an appropriate wound cleanser, such as Vashe® Wound Solution. Choose a dressing size which ensures that the dressing will cover the entire wound. Remove the protective tabs from the dressing. Apply the dressing directly to wound. Hold in place using a fixing bandage. Use a compression bandage when prescribed.
Change UrgoCell™ Ag with TLC™ Technology every one to three days, depending on the wound and the healing progression. Duration of treatment is determined by the physician and depends on wound type and conditions.
