Biatain Silicone Ag

Biatain Silicone Ag

Coloplast

Description

A soft, conformable, absorbent polyurethane foam pad with a vapour-permeable film backing and a gentle silicone adhesive border impregnated with silver. The dressing has 3DFit technology, which means the foam conforms to the wound bed to fill the gap and reduce pooling of exudate. 

Indications

Moderately to highly exuding wounds including leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, second-degree burns, donor sites, postoperative wounds and skin abrasions. Can be used under compression therapy. Sustained silver release for up to 7 days.

Contraindications

Known sensitivity to silver. Should not be used on individuals who are sensitive to or have had an allergic reaction to the dressing or its compounds. Do not use with oxidising solutions such as hypochlorite and hydrogen peroxide solutions. Ensure that any other evaporating solution is completely dried off before dressing application. Use by children, pregnant or nursing women and patients with severe hepatic or renal impairment has not been investigated.
