Polymem Max Overview
PolyMem Max Dressings are made with hydrophilic polyurethane foam that's impregnated with silver to manage wound exudate. With a non-adhesive border, these wound dressings are designed to target the wound area for optimal healing without causing any secondary trauma. These non-adhesive wound dressings are ideal for various wound types and can be worn with secondary dressings. PolyMem Silver Dressings are sterile, latex-free, and available in 4 by 4 inch and 8 by 8 inch. PolyMem Shapes Silver Dressings are a great option for more difficult wound locations.
Silver Wound Dressing
These wound dressings are impregnated with ionic silver. The hydrophilic polyurethane foam releases the silver to the wound, providing antimicrobial and antibacterial effects. The silver activates intermittently based on the exudate and bacteria in the wound. With more bacteria and exudate comes more silver to manage the wound and optimize wound healing. This reactive technology makes PolyMem Max a great choice for exudate wound management. For non-silver options, feel free to look at Farris Manufacturing's wide range of PolyMem products.
PolyMem Max Silver Dressings uses hydrophilic polyurethane foam and impregnated silver to effectively manage exudate to reduce healing time and exudate-related problems such as periwound skin damage and infections. This method aims to achieve a wound bed that is sufficiently moist for self-healing and can be used on a wide range of wounds, including pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, acute wounds, and first- and second-degree burns, among others.
PolyMem Max Dressings feature a non-adhesive border that allows the exudate management foam and silver to do their job without further damaging the local area. Many wound management products create secondary wounds while managing the original area. These dressings avoid that problem by focusing solely on the wound management. PolyMem Dressings can be paired with a wide range of secondary bandages for additional support.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: How do silver wound dressings work?
A: Silver dressings release a steady amount of ionic silver to the wound and provide antimicrobial, antibacterial effects. The silver activates based on the amount of exudate and bacteria in the wound. Because of this reactive technology, a silver dressing is a smart solution to exudate wound healing.
Q: How often should PolyMem be changed?
A: These dressings should be changed before the exudate reaches the wound margin, when it is clinically appropriate, or after no more than seven days.
Q: How is PolyMem Max applied?
A: Remove the old dressing. Clean the wound per the facility's protocol. Do not disturb the wound bed. Place the new dressing on the wound. If an infection is present, treat properly.
