"Silvasorb sheets and cavity absorb up to five times their weight in wound fluid and can donate moisture to dry wounds. Effective for up to seven days. Reduces change frequency and staff time."

"SilvaSorb harnesses the power of ionic silver, releasing silver at a controlled level for broad spectrum antimicrobial action, without harming tissue cells. The ionic silver is suspended in the hydrogel to control its release over a period of up to seven days. It offers antimicrobial protection over a broad spectrum of bacteria and fungi, including MRSA and VRE. SilvaSorb kills microbes, but is completely biocompatible with the tissue cells of healing."

"Silver can be found in gels, creams, powders or emulsions and, especially in dressings. Applied to serious wounds such as burns, these dressings differ in terms of composition, rate of release and mode of action of the active metabolite."
