Product description

Usage

Biatain Silicone Ag can be used 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, second-degree burns, donor sites, postoperative wounds and skin abrasions. Can be used with compression therapy. 

Biatain Silicone Ag is a soft and conformable foam dressing with a patented silver complex and a soft silicone adhesive border. Can be used on wounds at-risk of infection.
 

Unique 3D foam structure for superior absorption

The unique foam structure conforms closely to wound bed for structure superior absorption and retention of exudate. Conformability to wound bed minimizes risk of bacteria growth in “dead space” and creates the optimal condition for delivery of silver ions.
 

Superior exudate management

The fluid handling properties of Biatain Silicone Ag ensures that the exudate is effectively locked away in the foam, still leaving the wound moist for optimal healing conditions, even under compression.
 

Patented silver complex with broad antimicrobial profile

Optimal concentration of silver ensures faster killing of bacteria such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus and ß-haemolytic Streptococcus. The patented silver complex provides a sustained release of silver during the entire wear time (up to 7 days)
 

Non-touch opening

Biatain Silicone Ag has 3-piece non-touch opening for aseptic, safe and easy application, reducing waste of dressings.
 

Mode of action

In the presence of exudate silver is continuously released into the wound bed for up to 7 days.
 

Product composition
