CONTRAINDICATIONS. Silver salts stain tissue black due to deposition of reduced silver. The stain gradually disappears within period of two weeks. Prolonged ingestion or absorption of silver compounds leads to deposition of silver in connective tissues, producing slate-blue discoloration of the skin known as argyria. This discoloration may also appear on mucous membranes such as the margins of gums. The sclera of the eye is also stained.
DISPOSAL AND WASTE HANDLING.
DISPOSAL. Expired or unused applicators may be returned for disposal to: GF Health Products, Inc., 33 Plan Way, Bldg. 2, Warwick, RI 02886, or disposed of according to applicable federal, state and local regulations.
DOSAGE & ADMINISTRATION SECTION.
DOSAGE ADMINISTRATION. Moisten the applicator tip with distilled, deionized or purified water and apply the silver nitrate to the affected area by holding, rubbing, or rotating the tip along the affected tissue. The strength of the action is controlled by the dilution with distilled, deionized or purified water. One silver nitrate applicator is generally sufficient for each application. The action of the silver nitrate can be stopped by washing the area with saline solution (0.9% sodium chloride). Using saline solution to wet the applicator tips, or residual saline from wound flushing/washing will interfere with the action of silver nitrate resulting in cauterization failure. Only use distilled, deionized or purified water to wet applicator tips. Blot dry wounds that have been flushed/washed with saline prior to applying silver nitrate.
