Aquacel AG+ Extra Silver Hydrofiber Wound Dressing

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 ro expose bateria
  • 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

AQUACEL Ag+ Extra dressing may 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);
  • surgical wounds;
  • traumatic wounds;
  • 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, Kaposis sarcoma, and angiosarcoma;
  • wounds where bacteria are a suspected cause of (or a factor in) chronicity /non-progression.

In addition, AQUACEL Ag+ Ribbon dressing may be used for cavity and deep wounds including sinus, undermining and tracking wounds.
