PolyMem WIC Silver Cavity Wound Filler
3" x 3"
This PolyMem formulation is especially designed for cavity wounds. PolyMem Wic expands within the wound cavity to fill dead space, keeping the wound bed clean and moisturized while absorbing excess fluid. As this is a wound filler, to be used only as a primary dressing, this configuration comes without the PolyMem thin film backing. Use any other of the appropriate PolyMem configurations as a secondary dressing.
PolyMem Wic wound filler products belong to an innovative class of adaptable wound care dressings called QuadraFoam. QuadraFoam dressings effectively cleanse, fill, absorb, and moisten wounds throughout the healing continuum. No other single wound dressing combines these four key wound healing capabilities like the PolyMem formulation dressings.
As PolyMem Wic Silver wound filler absorbs fluid, it expands about one-third within the wound tunnel or cavity to fill dead space. The QuadraFoam membrane establishes and maintains a clean and moisturized wound bed. The moisture-balancing actions of the dressings are able to absorb impressive amounts of moisture and deliver moisture as demanded by the exposed tissues in the wound.
PolyMem and Pain Relief
The family of PolyMem QuadraFoam dressings help relieve wound pain and reduce the spread of inflammation into surrounding uninjured tissues without interfering with the robust localized inflammatory response required for healing.
PolyMem Silver Formulation
PolyMem Wic Silver and PolyMem Wic Silver Rope have small particle silver added to the PolyMem formulation. When you use the PolyMem QuadraFoam Silver formulation on a wound, moisture and fluids in the wound bed are absorbed into the dressing, releasing silver ions, which protect the dressing from microbial contamination. PolyMem Silver dressings are the most absorptive of the silver containing dressings while also helping to reduce the risk of damaging healthy cells within the wound. In tests for antimicrobial effectiveness using invitro testing methods, PolyMem QuadraFoam Silver formulation dressings killed at least 99.9% of the entire population of each organism tested.* The bacteria and fungi tested are representative of organisms found in clinical settings.
