CDC: Antibiotic Overuse a Huge Threat to Patient Safety Deadly, drug-resistant bug spreading beyond hospitals Order SilvrSTAT®  

Prescription SilvrSTAT® from ABL Medical is a powerful new nano-molecular silver antimicrobial hydrogel that replaces old technology silvers and some traditional antibiotics. It kills bacteria immediately and continuously while healing wounds including ulcers, lacerations, and burns quickly and effectively with no side effects. SilvrSTAT® is considered an Rx Medical Device and can be stored for 3 years at room temperature.

Features and Benefits:

Features Benefits
Only Silver FDA indicated to inhibit MRSA & VRE Other silvers do not have FDA indication for MRSA
Nano-Silver based Hydrogel Inhibits the growth of microorganisms such as Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, MRSA, VRE and fungi
Catalytic- killing bacteria rapidly and continuously Other silvers are ionic
Multivalent - pulls multiple electrons from bacteria - but is not deactivated and keeps on killing Old technology silvers are univalent, which pull one electron from bacteria wall and are then deactivated and unable to kill any more bacteria
No known or expected adverse events Some antibacterials contain ingredients that can cause allergic reactions or bacterial resistance
Not deactivated by saline irrigation All other ionic silvers are deactivated by saline
Rapid & continuous bactericidal activity at low concentrations - only 32 parts per million (PPM) Regular use of old technology silver-based products can cause silver staining
Transparent gel - allows visualization of the wound bed or suture line Allows visualization of the wound bed or suture line
Water-based formulation Does not occlude
Does not contain alcohol, non-flammable Non Flammable and can be used around oxygen, electro cautery or hyperbaric chamber
Does not contain sulfa Sulfa-based products may cause allergic reactions
Does not contain alginate components Does not impact the surrounding tissue
FDA cleared as Prescription Medical Device Reimbursable under HCPC Code A6248

Most providers are prescribing SilvrSTAT where an OTC antibiotic would have previously been used to protect both their patients from acquiring MRSA or another hospital acquired infection, and to avoid incurring a facility chargeback for a readmission related to an infection.

FAQs:

1) Can I use normal saline or do I have to use sterile water to cleanse the wound?

2) What is the frequency for dressing change?

3) What type of dressing should I use?

4) What is the difference between ionic and molecular silver?

5) Can SilvrSTAT® be used in hyperbaric therapy?

6) Will SilvrSTAT® cause skin staining/argyria?

7) Are there any side effects associated with using SilvrSTAT®?

 

1) Can I use normal saline or do I have to use sterile water to cleanse the wound?

Answer: No. You may cleanse the wound with normal saline and then rinse with a neutral solution. (Chloride ions bind ionic silver)

2) What is the frequency for dressing change?

Answer: SilvrSTAT® gel should normally be changed every 24 to 72 hours, but the frequency will depend on the type and condition of the wound.

3) What type of dressing should I use?

Answer: Cover with the appropriate secondary dressing recommended at your institution.

4) What is the difference between ionic and molecular silver?

Answer: Ionic silver has a plus one charge. Once an electron is pulled into the ionic silver, it becomes bound and can no longer attract additional electrons. SilvrSTAT®'s molecular silver has a neutral charge and remains unbound stealing and expelling electrons as long as it remains in the wound bed making it much more powerful.

5) Can SilvrSTAT® be used in hyperbaric therapy?

Answer: Yes. SilvrSTAT® gel contains no alcohol and is non-flammable and is safe for use in HBOT.

6) Will SilvrSTAT® cause skin staining/argyria?

Answer: No. SilvrSTAT® gel contains only 32 ppm silver and will not stain skin like high ppm ionic silvers.

7) Are there any side effects associated with using SilvrSTAT®?

Answer: No. There are no known or reasonably suspected adverse events associated with the use of SilvrSTAT®.
