AQUACEL Ag dressings are antimicrobial primary dressings for use in wounds that are infected or at risk of infection. They are designed to manage the 3 key local barriers to healing – exudate, infection and biofilm. AQUACEL Ag+ dressings incorporate proven Hydrofiber Technology and Ag+ Technology – a unique ionic silver-containing, antibiofilm formulation. AQUACEL Ag+ dressings are available as AQUACEL Ag+ Extra and AQUACEL Ag+ Ribbon dressings.
AQUACEL Ag+ Extra dressing is comprised of 2 layers of Hydrofiber Technology stitch bonded together making it 9x stronger and 50% more absorbent than standard AQUACEL Ag dressing.
AQUACEL Ag+ Extra dressing my be used for the management of:
wounds as a barrier to bacterial penetration of the dressing as this may help reduce infection;
wounds where there is an infection or an increased risk of infection (Extra only);
diabetic foot ulcers, leg ulcers, (venous stasis ulcers, arterial ulcers and leg ulcers of mixed aetiology) and pressure ulcers/sores (partial & full thickness);
wounds that are prone to bleeding, such as wounds that have been mechanically or surgically debrided;
oncology wounds with exudate, such as fungoides-cutaneous tumors, fungating carcinoma, cutaneous metastasis, Kaposi’s sarcoma, and angiosarcoma;
wounds where bacteria are a suspected cause of (or a factor in) chronicity /non-progression.
AQUACEL Ag+ dressings comprise two powerful technologies working synergistically to manage the key local barriers to wound healing – exudate, infection and biofilm.
Ag+ Technology is a unique ionic silver-containing, antibiofilm formulation that:
Disrupts and beaks down biofilm slime to expose bacteria.
Kills a broad spectrum of bacteria, including antibiotic resistant superbugs, with its reservoir of silver.
prevents biofilm formation
Hydrofiber Technology helps create an ideal environment for healing – and for Ag+ Technology to work:
Locks in excess exudate, bacteria and biofilm to help minimise cross infection and prevent maceration
Micro contours to the wound bed, maintaining optimal moisture balance and eliminating dead spaces where bacteria and biofilm can grow
responds to wound conditions by forming a cohesive gel, while helping to minimise pain associated with dressing changes
