Description

AQUACEL® Ag dressing does more than just provide antimicrobial activity.
Because it is the only antimicrobial dressing that incorporates Hydrofiber® Technology, it:
• Releases ionic silver in a controlleda manner as wound exudate is absorbed into the dressing

• May help protect periwound skin by helping reduce the risk of maceration

• May help minimise cross-infection during dressing removal

• Is soft and conformable

• Supports wound healing by providing a moist wound healing environment7

• AQUACEL® Ag Hydrofiber® Dressing provides rapid and sustained antimicrobial activity in vitro.

• As demonstrated in in vitro testing, AQUACEL® Ag Hydrofiber® Dressing provides sustained antimicrobial activity for up to 7 days.

Advantages of AQUACEL® Dressings:
• supports wound healing by providing a moist wound environment

• protects the periwound skin

• helps reduce pain in situ and on dressing removal

• provides rapid and sustained antimicrobial activity against P. aeruginosa and S. aureus, in vitro

Plus the added advantages of:
• increased strength to help prevent breakage

• reduced shrinkage

The technology:
AQUACEL® Ag dressing with Strengthening Fibre contains the unique ConvaTec Hydrofiber® Technology, which gels upon contact with wound exudate. This gelling action allows AQUACEL®Ag Dressings with Strengthening Fibre to:
• lock in exudate and microorganisms that are contained within the exudate

• contour to the wound bed

• respond to the wound environment
- absorbs wound fluid and creates a soft gel
- silver version releases ionic silver in a controlled manner as wound exudate is absorbed.

One of the many potential applications:
The added strength of AQUACEL® Ag Dressings with Strengthening Fibre makes it an ideal partner in the management of:
• excised abscesses
- MRSA infection is found in approximately 61% of abscesses

• excised pilonidal cysts

• cavity wounds
- absorbs exudate and microorganisms

Ither potential applications include:
• sinus tracts (post-procedure)

• suture lines

• fingers and toes of paediatric patients (burns, abrasions)

• pin (ortho) and tube (g-tube, PEG) sites

• finger or toe degloving

• circumcision sites
