Site Preparation
Debride when necessary and irrigate the wound site in accordance with standard pro-tocols.
Remove excess solution from surrounding skin.

Dressing Application
Cut (using sterile scissors) or fold the dressing to fit the wound. 
Apply to wound bed directly. Loosely fill deep wounds, ensuring the dressing does not overlap the wound margins.
Cover and secure Melgisorb Ag with a non-occlusive secondary dressing.
 
Dressing Change and Removal
Melgisorb Ag can remain in situ up to 7 days. Dressing change frequency will depend on wound condition and the level of exudate. Initially it may be necessary to change the dressing every 24 hours.

Reapply Melgisorb Ag when the secondary dressing has reached its absorbent capacity or whenever good wound care practice dictates that the dressing should be changed.
To reapply, gently remove the secondary dressing.
If the wound appears dry, saturate the dressing with normal sterile saline solution prior to removal.

Gently remove the dressing from the wound bed and discard.
If required, irrigate the wound site in accordance with standard protocols prior to application of a new dressing.
