Aquacel Ag Silver Hydrofiber Wound Dressings

Aquacel Ag dressing can kill a broad spectrum of wound pathogens in the dressing that can cause infection including MRSA, VRE and Pseudomonas aeruginosa and aids in reducing the wound bioburden

Bacteria and other harmful wound exudate components are locked within the gelled AQUACEL Ag dressing fibres, where the ionic silver contained within the dressing kills them

Application:

- Before applying, carefully cleanse the wound with saline and dry surrounding skin
- Apply directly onto the wound leaving an adequate overlap onto the surrounding skin of at least 1cm.
- When using AQUACEL Ag dressing ribbon in cavity wounds, loosely pack wound to about 80% capacity 
- Leaving at least 2.5cm outside the wound for easy retrieval
- The Aquacel Ag dressing should then be covered with an appropriate secondary wound care dressing.
 
Clinical Benefits:

- Supports moist wound healing environment
- Contains ionic silver which can kill a broad spectrum of wound pathogens that can cause infection ? including MRSA, VRE and Pseudomonas aeruginosa
- Absorbs and retains higher levels of exudate than most alginates and gauze
- Reduces maceration by locking exudate into its fibres and away from the skin
- Cohesive gel allows easy, atraumatic removal
- Soft and conformable allowing intimate contact with the wound surface. This reduces ?dead space? where bacteria may reside

Indications:

Aquacel Ag dressing is indicated as a primary dressing for moderately to heavily exuding wounds where there is an infection or an increased risk of infection

Chronic wounds: leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers and fungating lesions
Acute wounds: post-surgical wounds, abrasions, lacerations and partial thickness burns
