• sulfonamides
  • Silver sulfadiazine belongs to sulfonamides ( according to its chemical structure ) and these compounds are associated with an increased risk of kernicterus in unborn babies and infants, because their liver is not able to metabolize the drug, which causes increased levels of bilirubin in the blood and the occurrence of kernicterus.

  • nitrate
  • The picture may be clouded even further if caustic agents have been used to clean the stump or if silver nitrate has been used to cauterize granulomata of the umbilical stump. (wikipedia.org)
  • Silver compounds have been used in external preparations as antiseptics, including both silver nitrate and silver proteinate, which can be used in dilute solution as eyedrops to prevent conjunctivitis in newborn babies. (wikipedia.org)
  • Silver nitrate is also sometimes used in dermatology in solid stick form as a caustic ("lunar caustic") to treat certain skin conditions, such as corns and warts. (wikipedia.org)
  • dressings
  • A 2012 Cochrane review found that silver-containing hydrocolloid dressings were no better than standard alginate dressings in treating diabetic foot ulcers. (wikipedia.org)
  • A 2010 Cochrane review found insufficient evidence to determine if dressings containing silver increase or decrease infection or affect healing rates. (wikipedia.org)
  • The lead author of this paper is a speaker for one of the manufacturers of one of the silver dressings under study. (wikipedia.org)
  • A 2009 systematic review found that silver dressings improve both wound healing and quality of life when managing chronic non-healing wounds. (wikipedia.org)
  • Another 2009 review concluded that the evidence for silver-containing foam in chronic infected wounds is not clear, but found that silver-containing foam resulted in a greater reduction in wound size and more effective control of leakage and odor than non-silver dressings. (wikipedia.org)
  • Another systematic review concluded that the evidence shows an overall positive effect of silver-releasing dressings in the management of infected chronic wounds, but expressed concern that the quality of the underlying trials was limited and potentially biased. (wikipedia.org)
  • A number of wound dressings containing silver as an anti-bacterial have been cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). (wikipedia.org)
  • outcomes
  • Randomized and pseudorandomized controlled trials were selected if central venous catheters coated with chlorhexidine and silver sulfadiazine were compared with nonimpregnated catheters and if outcomes of catheter-related bloodstream infection or catheter colonization were measured. (acpjc.org)
  • Cochrane
  • A Cochrane review from 2013 found that most of the trials that met inclusion criteria for the review had methodological shortcomings and thus are of little use in assessing the efficacy of silver sulfadiazine in the healing of burn injuries. (wikipedia.org)
  • treatment
  • An earlier version of the review had raised concerns about delays in time to wound healing and an increased number of dressing applications when silver sulfadiazine (SSD) is used for the full duration of the treatment. (wikipedia.org)
  • available
  • Silver x-ray film remains popular for its accuracy, and cost effectiveness, particularly in developing countries, where digital X-ray technology is usually not available. (wikipedia.org)
  • bandage
  • III)- maceration after long usage and (IV)- soaking to clothing, bandage and so on (4, 5) in this study silver sulfadiazine spray has been designed and formulated for compensating these defects. (ac.ir)

  • reduce
  • There is tentative evidence that silver coatings on endotracheal breathing tubes may reduce the incidence of ventilator-associated pneumonia. (wikipedia.org)
  • Limited evidence suggests that endotracheal breathing tubes coated with silver may reduce the incidence of ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP) and delay its onset, although no benefit is seen in the duration of intubation, the duration of stay in intensive care or the mortality rate. (wikipedia.org)
  • The U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2007 cleared an endotracheal tube with a fine coat of silver to reduce the risk of ventilator-associated pneumonia. (wikipedia.org)
  • form
  • Also the periodic stability study of silver sulfadiazine in spray form, which was carried out using TLC, HPLC and particle size analyser methods, showed no significant degradation and crystal growth of active ingredient in the spray formulation after one year. (ac.ir)
