PolyMem polymeric membrane dressings are made of moisture-loving polyurethane matrix that contains (1) safe wound cleanser, (2) glycerin moisturizer, and (3) superabsorbents. Dressings have a thin polyurethane backing which breathes and helps keep out contamination. Dressings may be used as a primary, secondary, or combined primary and secondary dressing. PolyMem Silicone Adhesive Dressings have an adhesive border that is gentle to the skin and repositionable. Drug-free PolyMem dressings help to:
• effectively manage and heal wounds
• absorb fluid and provide a moist healing environment
• minimize and relieve persistent and procedural wound pain
• reduce edema, bruising, and the spread of inflammation into surrounding undamaged tissues
The silver helps manage infected wounds and wounds in patients prone to infection. It also helps jump-start healing in stalled wounds.
