Advancements in infection prevention have greatly increased the surgeon’s ability to give their patients the best possible care. SurgiClear from Covalon Technologies integrates two well-known antimicrobials (chlorhexidine and silver) into the film dressing’s soft silicone adhesive. The dual antimicrobial silicone adhesive kills 99.99 percent of bacteria and suppresses re-growth of microbes on the patient’s skin, maintaining a preferred environment for wound healing. The patented technology allows the film dressing to remain transparent for site assessment, while being breathable and waterproof, and the soft silicone adhesive makes this dressing ideal for the most compromised or sensitive of skin types.
