Product description

Superior absorption due to unique 3D foam

When in contact with exudate the 3D foam structure of Biatain® Silicone Ag conforms closely to the wound bed for superior absorption - even under compression (2,3). The unique 3D foam structure absorbs the exudate vertically and locks the fluid away within its structure, still leaving the wound moist for optimal wound healing conditions. The close contact to the wound bed reduces dead space and minimises exudate pooling which can lead to infection (4).

Sustained silver release

Silver complex with documented effect on bacteria commonly found in infected non-healing wounds, including MRSA, VR-E, ESBL-producing bacteria and Pseudomonas (2,3). The silver profile provides a sustained release of silver during the entire wear time (up to 7 days) (1).

Gentle and secure fit

The silicone adhesive layer provides a secure fit to keep the dressing in place while ensuring minimal pain upon removal. The soft and flexible design of Biatain® Silicone Ag ensures a close fit to wound and body, and the foam pad at skin level makes Biatain® Silicone Ag suitable to wear under compression.

Intuitive to use

Biatain® Silicone Ag has 3-piece non-touch opening for an easy and aseptic application.

Product composition

Biatain® Silicone Ag is a soft and conformable polyurethane foam dressing that contains an ionic silver complex homogeneously dispersed throughout the foam matrix. The dressing has a semi-permeable, bacteria- and waterproof top film and a soft silicone adhesive layer.

Usage

Biatain® Silicone Ag is indicated for a wide range of exuding wounds with delayed healing due to bacteria, or where there is a risk for infection, including leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, second degree burns, donor sites, postoperative wounds and traumatic wounds (e.g. skin abrasions, skin tears, cuts). Can be used with compression therapy.
