New Technology to Prevent Hospital Infections

A new technology uses silver to stop some common hospital infections.

Acrymed recently received FDA clearance for the use of its Silvagard technology. A solution of silver nano-particles is applied to catheters, stents or implantable devices. The silver coating slowly dissolves in body fluid and kills any microbes that might try to attach to the implant.

And there's more...the antimicrobial silver solution does not alter devices and it doesn't interact with any drugs the patient might be taking.
