Extra Silver Gelling Fiber Dressing
LUOFUCON® Extra Silver Gelling Fiber Dressing is a soft, conformable, non-woven pad or ribbon dressing composed of carboxymethyl cellulose fibers, enhanced fibers and ionic silver. Based on in vitro testing, the silver in the dressing inhibits bacterial growth in the dressing and provides a barrier against bacterial penetration through the dressing for up to seven days. This conformable and highly absorbent dressing absorbs wound fluid and creates a soft gel, providing an ideal moist balanced environment for wound healing.
Place and remove in one piece. High wet-strength gelling fiber dressing with great anti-bacterial effect makes dressing change easily.

Longer wearing time and cost effective.
Broad-spectrum Antibacterial & Rapid Effectiveness
Effectiveness against MRSA and PA
Fig 1 shows that LUOFUCON® Extra Silver Gelling Fiber Dressing has anti-bacterial effect on both Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. The anti-bacterial effect on Gram-negative bacteria can reach to 99.99% in one hour. It is also effective against drug-resistant bacteria, MRSA for example. And the anti-bacterial rate can reach to 99.99% in 16 hours.
Fig 2 and Fig 3 show that LUOFUCON® Extra Silver Gelling Fiber Dressing and the control sample both have anti-bacterial effects on Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. For Gram-negative bacteria, the anti-bacterial effect of LUOFUCON® Extra Silver Gelling Fiber Dressing is equivalent to that of the control sample. For Gram-positive bacteria, the anti-bacterial effect of LUOFUCON® Extra Silver Gelling Fiber Dressing is better than that of the control sample.
Fig 4, 5 and 6 show that LUOFUCON® Extra Silver Gelling Fiber Dressing releases silver ions stably every day for 8 consecutive days like the control sample. The dose is sufficient to maintain the optimal anti-bacterial effect, while the releasing rate was roughly the same as that of the control product. The statistics show that the cumulative silver releasing amount of LUOFUCON® Extra Silver Gelling Fiber Dressing is far below 3800mg which is the toxic dose of silver for human in a number of clinical and academic studies. For single use or multiple use, the releasing of silver ion is much lower than the toxic dose of silver. Therefore, LUOFUCON® Extra Silver Gelling Fiber Dressing is a safe and effective anti-bacterial dressing, and achieves better anti-bacterial effect with a relatively small dose of silver.
The topical anti-microbial agent silver has been used for hundreds of years in wound care. Silver ions are highly reactive and affect multiple sites within bacterial cells, ultimately causing bacterial cell death. They bind to bacterial cell membranes, causing disruption of the bacterial cell wall and cell leakage. Silver ions transported into the cell disrupt cell function by binding to proteins and interfering with energy production, enzyme function and cell replication. Silver ions are active against a broad range of bacteria, fungi and viruses, including many anti-bioticresistant bacteria, such as Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE)*.
Bacteria are absorbed into LUOFUCON® Extra Silver Gelling Fiber Dressing along with the wound exudate.
The silver ions in the dressing are very attractive to various types of bacteria.
Silver ions bind to bacterial cell membranes, affect multiple sites within bacterial cells.
Bacterial cell walls are disrupted and cellular components leak out, affecting cell function and leading to bacterial death.
Bacteria will be removed along with the dressing during dressing change.
By effectively managing the bioburden, the condition of the wound will be improved.

Under the supervision of a healthcare professional:
LUOFUCON® Extra Silver Gelling Fiber Dressing may be used for the management of moderate to heavily exuding chronic and acute wounds as an effective barrier to prevent bacterial penetration through the dressing, including:
LUOFUCON® Silver Antibacterial Gelling Fiber Dressing may be used for:
Partial thickness burns (second degree);
Diabetic foot ulcers;
Leg ulcers (venous stasis ulcers, arterial ulcers and leg ulcers of mixed etiology);
Pressure ulcers (partial and full thickness);
Diabetic foot ulcers;
Minor scalds and burns.
LUOFUCON® Extra Silver Gelling Fiber Dressing should not be used on individuals who are sensitive to or who have had an allergic reaction to the dressing or its components.
Conduct a comprehensive assessment of the patient, wound and environment before deciding whether a silver dressing is appropriate；
Document the rationale for using a silver dressing in the patient's healthcare records；
Choose the silver dressing on the basis of patient and wound needs, ie exudate level, wound depth, need for conformability, odour control, ease of removal and safety；
For infected wounds, initial use should be for a two week challenge；
Continued use of silver dressings should include regular review；
Use silver dressings in the context of a wound management protocol that includes wound bed preparation as appropriate for the wound type；
Follow manufacturer's instructions regarding indications, contraindications, method of application, wound cleansing procedures, need for dressing moistening before application, and use in patients undergoing MRI or radiotherapy；
Use silver dressings with caution in children and very large wounds.
