Siltape

Soft silicone perforated tape

Siltape

Product Description

Siltape is made from soft silicone which is gentle on the skin, this is particularly useful in patients with very thin, friable skin which is vulnerable to damage. Silicone does not cell strip in the same way that other adhesives may damage tissue.

Use

Siltape can be used in any situation where a regular adhesive tape would be used where friable or sensitive skin is an issue.

Siltape is a perfect solution to taping down eyelids for theatre. Glue based tapes are often used, these can be painful to remove and in some cases cause tissue damage or pull out eyelashes.

Siltape is ideal for protecting friable tissue from pressure damage or sores from tubing; this is especially useful on the face and tops of ears. Siltape can be applied directly to the skin and tubing placed on top. Siltape can also be used for scar management.

FAQ

1. Advadraw or Advadraw Spiral?
Rapid capillary action technology is indicated for most exuding necrotic or sloughy wounds including pressure ulcers, leg ulcers, dehisced surgical wounds and diabetic foot ulcers. Advadraw and Advadraw Spiral can be used on the same wounds, select Advadraw Spiral if the increased conformability of the shape is desirable but is especially indicated for sinus cavities.
2. When should I change the Advadraw dressings?
The dressing must be changed at least every seven days but this will depend on a number of factors e.g. the level of exudates and interstitial fluid, number of dressings that are layered, level of necrotic and sloughy tissue to be removed from the wound bed. Advadraw must either be changed or additional layers applied when exudate has reached the outer edges of the dressing.
3. When should I use Advadraw?
Use on any exuding wound, especially where there is some necrotic or sloughy tissue present. It is particularly useful where the wound is an irregular shape as Advadraw can be easily cut to the shape of the wound. As it draws fluid into the dressing an exact wound profile is not essential, it may be beneficial to overlap the peri-wound area with Advadraw. Fluid is drawn vertically into the dressing and there is no lateral movement of fluid at the wound interface which could cause maceration.
