The film backing helps prevent wound exudate strikethrough and acts as a barrier to outside contamination.

Mode of Action - The foam absorbs exudate and allows evaporation through the backing of the dressing.

Indications - Low (Advazorb Silfix Lite) to heavily exuding wounds (Advazorb Silfix) such as presure ulcers, skin tears, leg ulcers and abrasions, can be used as a secondary dressing.
For use in patients with fragile skin

Method of Use - Primary or secondary layer. Dressing should overlap the wound by 2 to 3 cm.

Frequency of Use - Dressing can be left in place for up to 7 days. Highly exuding wounds need changing when strikethrough appears and the exudate spreads to the edge of the dressing.

Contra-Indications - Arterial bleeds, heavily bleeding wounds and vascular fungating wounds.
