 Overview

 
 
 ASSIST Silver Graft Cover Products


ASSIST Silver dressings were designed specifically for the management of skin and skin substitute graft applications where low adherence is paramount. A proprietary porous, non-adherent layer was added to the AFM layer to reduce the risk of dressing adherence at removal.  The proprietary Active Fluid Management® technology pumps fluid in one direction through the AFM layer away from the patient, while providing antimicrobial protection and a moist environment.

 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.
