Melgisorb Ag

Superior absorbency for tougher conditions1

When the risk of infection is high, Melgisorb® Ag is the choice. It absorbs up to 45% more exudate than the leading silver dressing and provides a sustained antimicrobial effect2. Releasing silver ions in the presence of wound fluid, Melgisorb Ag is also effective against a broad spectrum of microorganisms.

Excellent absorption for deep, heavily exuding wounds

Provides sustained antimicrobial effect2

Protects the wound and aids autolytic debridement, thereby facilitating wound healing

High fiber strength allows removal in one piece

Areas of use

Melgisorb Ag is indicated for use in the management of all moderate to heavily exuding partial to full thickness wounds including: post-operative wounds, trauma wounds (dermal lesions, trauma injuries or incisions) leg ulcers, pressure injuries, diabetic ulcers, graft and donor sites, cavity wounds, superficial and partial thickness burns.

Melgisorb Ag may be used in the management of infected wounds or wounds in which there is an increased risk of infection under the medical supervision of a healthcare professional.

Data on file

Site Preparation
Debride when necessary and irrigate the wound site in accordance with standard pro-tocols.
Remove excess solution from surrounding skin.

Dressing Application
Cut (using sterile scissors) or fold the dressing to fit the wound. 
Apply to wound bed directly. Loosely fill deep wounds, ensuring the dressing does not overlap the wound margins.
Cover and secure Melgisorb Ag with a non-occlusive secondary dressing.
 
Dressing Change and Removal
Melgisorb Ag can remain in situ up to 7 days. Dressing change frequency will depend on wound condition and the level of exudate. Initially it may be necessary to change the dressing every 24 hours.

Reapply Melgisorb Ag when the secondary dressing has reached its absorbent capacity or whenever good wound care practice dictates that the dressing should be changed.
To reapply, gently remove the secondary dressing.
If the wound appears dry, saturate the dressing with normal sterile saline solution prior to removal.

Gently remove the dressing from the wound bed and discard.
If required, irrigate the wound site in accordance with standard protocols prior to application of a new dressing.
