ASSIST Silver Burn Dressings




 ASSIST Silver Graft Cover Products
Every Milliken ASSIST Silver dressing utilizes Active Fluid Management® Technology created by Milliken Healthcare Products, LLC.  This three-part design combines two layers of high-performance fabric using a micro-knit process, creating a moisture transfer mechanism that pulls away and traps excess exudate.  

ASSIST Silver combines the moisture management benefits of AFM’s three-part design with a proprietary ceramic silver ion technology.  This 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 with antimicrobial activity for up to seven days.

The patented low adherent layer in ASSIST Silver eliminates the need for a separate non-adherent layer, which saves O.R. and nursing time during application and maintenance.  Furthermore, the dressings’ low profile and flexibility allow for improved range of motion and patient comfort.

 Application Guide

Initial Application
1. Apply ASSIST Silver directly to the graft site:

   a. Overlap the graft cover approximately 3 - 4 inches onto intact skin
   b. For large areas either overlap or place ASSIST Silver edge to edge

 Note: a non-adherent layer is not required between ASSIST Silver and the graft site

2.  Secure with roll gauze, burn netting or other appropriate secondary dressing 

Day 2-7

1. ASSIST Silver is usually replaced every 2-3 days in the first week post-grafting.
2. Between dressing changes, inspect secondary dressings for proper positioning and amount of drainage.
3. The secondary dressing can be replaced as needed without disturbing ASSIST Silver.

Days 8-Graft Healing

1. ASSIST Silver should be used until the graft is completely healed.
2. Apply and maintain secondary dressings as indicated above.
3. After the first week post-grafting, ASSIST Silver can be left in place for up to 7 days but should be changed per clinician preference.
