MORE ABOUT THIS ITEM

 

  • Sustained antimicrobial protection
    Releases silver ions, in the presence of wound fluid, for up to 21 days.
  • Highly absorbent
    Maxorb Extra Ag+ absorbs more than other alginate or absorbent silver dressings.
  • Fluid will not wick laterally
    Wound exudate mixes with dressing to form a gel that will not wick out, reducing the potential for damage to periwound skin.
  • Superior gelling and fluid handling
    The CMC fiber improves the vertical wicking and fluid handling as well as the wet strength.
  • Reduces odor
    By providing an antibacterial barrier to combat bacteria absorbed in the wound exudate, odor is reduced.
