Tritec Silver Dressing
Every Milliken Tritec Silver dressing utilizes a controlled release silver ion coupled with the benefits of Active Fluid Management technology created by Milliken Healthcare
Products. This three part design combines two layers of high performance fabric using a micro-knit process. This creates a powerful moisture transfer mechanism that pulls away and traps excess exudate. The combination of these fabrics keeps the periwound skin dry, the wound bed moist, and harmful exudate away from a healing wound.
Tritec™ Silver combines the moisture management benefits of AFM™’s three-part design with a proprietary ceramic silver ion technology. This powerful, controlled release of ionic silver inhibits a broad-spectrum of infection-causing microbes
including antibiotic-resistant strains such as MRSA. The release of silver into the dressing is activated by the body’s own sodium and begins inactivating pathogens within one hour of dressing application. Antimicrobial activity lasts up to 7 days.
Directions for Use:
Tritec Silver dressings can be used throughout the healing process. Prepare the wound bed according to clinical protocol such as debridement and/or cleaning and rinsing with sterile saline or water. Remove the dressing from the package and apply to the wound with the printed side of the dressing away from the wound. Optimal performance of Tritec Silver dressings requires direct contact with the wound. If required, Tritec
Silver dressings can be cut to various shapes and sizes. Tritec Silver dressings can be secured with an appropriate dressing such as roll gauze, adhesive border gauze, composite island dressing, transparent film or tape. Tritec Silver dressings can be used under compression.
Directions for Removal:
Tritec Silver dressings should be changed when clinically indicated or as prescribed by a healthcare professional. Care fully remove the fixative and the dressing from the wound. Normally the dressing does not adhere to the wound. If adherence is observed, the dressing can be moistened with sterile saline or water to ease removal.
Tritec Silver dressings provide an antimicrobial barrier to microbial colonization in the dressing and reduce microbial penetration through the dressing. Tritec Silver dressings are indicated for the management of acute and chronic wounds: partial thickness burns, incisions, skin grafts, donor sites, lacerations, abrasions, and Stage I-IV dermal ulcers (vascular, venous, pressure and diabetic).
The Tritec Silver dressings should not be used on patients with a known sensitivity to silver. In case of suspected allergic reaction, discontinue use immediately and contact your healthcare provider.
