Hydrophilic foam dressing with soft silicone wound contact layer
Advazorb Silfix and Advazorb Silfix Lite combine the excellent fluid handling capabilities of Advazorb with a layer of atraumatic soft silicone adhesive.
The soft silicone ensures that the dressing does not stick to the wet surface of a wound bed or cause trauma to delicate new tissue upon dressing removal. This is particularly suited to those patients with friable or delicate skin.
Remove clear liners and apply pink side up to the wound ensuring the dressing covers the entire wound area and a minimum overlap of 2cm around the edges of the wound. Secure in place with tape, appropriate bandage or secondary dressing.
The silicone layer on Advazorb Silfix enables the dressing to be placed onto the patient whilst a secondary dressing or bandage is applied for retention. This allows the dressing to be applied by a single health care professional.
Suitable for acute and chronic wounds including: cuts and abrasions, superficial burns, surgical wounds, leg ulcers, pressure ulcers and diabetic ulcers
Arterial bleeds, heavily bleeding wounds and vascular fungating tumours
- Atraumatic soft silicone wound contact layer
