PolyMem Silver WIC
PolyMem Silver WIC dressing’s anti-inflammatory effect helps reduce wound pain.
Its non-adherent design minimises trauma at dressing changes, promoting comfort and concordance.
This PolyMem formulation is especially designed for cavity wounds. PolyMem Silver WIC contains antimicrobial, small particle (nano-crystalline) silver (2000PPM/0.2%) to help manage wound bioburden and expands within the wound cavity to fill space, keeping the wound bed clean and moisturised while absorbing excess fluid. PolyMem Silver WIC is indicated for as a primary dressing for cavity wounds and therefore comes without the PolyMem thin film backing to allow absorption from all sides. Other PolyMem dressings such as PolyMem Adhesive can be used as a secondary dressing.
When to use PolyMem Silver WIC:
PolyMem Silver WIC is indicated for cavity wounds, superficial and partial thickness burns, traumatic wounds, skin tears, radiotherapy skin reactions, donor and graft sites.
