Details

Allevyn Ag Adhesive Silver Dressings, by Smith and Nephew, are designed to help heal full-thickness wounds, or wounds that are severe enough to expose tissue under the skin layers. These wound dressings integrate the antimicrobial properties of silver to allow a quicker heal time while the dressing is in place. They also have a multi-layered foam center with tight sealing adhesive borders to keep germs from entering the wound. The Allevyn AG Adhesive Silver Wound Dressings are made in various sizes to fit the Wound Care needs of the patient. The Allevyn AG dressings are made for extended use and will keep a moist healing environment that is ideal for such severe skin openings and trauma. Typically the dressings are kept on for 5-7 days. They are waterproof, easy to apply, and the adhesive is gentle on sensitive skin types and will not stick to any portion of the wound. The top film of the dressing is designed to become breathable in the presence of fluid to work better in environments where clinicians need it most.

How Silver Kills Microbes

AG Silver contains silver nanoparticles - particles smaller than your hair. These nanoparticles interact with surrounding elements in the environment. During the interaction, the silver loses an electron and forms an ion.

When silver ions come into contact with microbes, they punch holes through the outer layers and enter the microbial cells. Once inside, the ions attach to vital structures, such as DNA and RNA, and the microbe dies. The dead cells then leak silver ions, infecting nearby micro-organisms.

Changing Frequency

  • Follow clinic regulations regarding checking of dressings and wounds
  • If Covering an infected wound, Check and treat according to local clinical procedures
  • Allevyn has a maximum of 7 days metween changes (5 for sacral usage)

Removal Procedures

  1. Peel up one corner
  2. Gently pull dressing away
