Sorbsan Silver Ribbon
Sorbsan Silver’s properties make it ideal for managing cavity wounds; the fibres (1.5% silver alginate fibres) absorb exudate and form an antimicrobial gel which fully contours the wound bed for maximum effect, providing optimal conditions to support healing 1.
The gelled Sorbsan Silver fibres can be irrigated away from the wound with normal saline 0.9% for pain free removal 2,3 . Sorbsan Silver Ribbon dressings come with a plastic probe to help assess the wound before dressing.
When to use Sorbsan Silver Ribbon:
