Details
  • Activated charcoal traps odour in the dressing1
  • Activated charcoal binds bacteria and toxins that impair the healing process1
  • Silver kills the bacteria in the dressing5

This dressing is an activated charcoal dressing with silver, enclosed in a non-adherent nylon sleeve that not only masks odor but because of the activated charcoal, binds bacteria and bacterial toxins in the dressing.1

Actisorb Silver 220 Dressing is effective in vitro against 150 microorganisms associated with wound infection, including MRSA and VRE.2 An in vitro study shows the dressing provides effective antimicrobial activity without causing any harm to host cells nor preventing fibroblast proliferation.3 Actisorb Silver 220 Dressing eliminates malodour thereby improving the patient’s quality of life.4 As malodor might be accompanied by wound fluids, Actisorb Silver 220 Dressing also manages exudate while helping to maintain a moist wound healing environment.5
