AQUACEL® Ag+ dressings are antimicrobial primary dressings for use in wounds that are infected or at risk of infection. By incorporating Hydrofiber™ Technology and Ag+ Technology, they are designed to manage the 3 key local barriers to healing: Exudate, Infection and Biofilm.
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.
Mode of Action
AQUACEL®AG+ Extra™ 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, anti-biofilm formulation that: - Disrupts and beaks down biofilm slime to expose bacteria - Kills a broad spectrum of bacteria with its reservoir of silver - Prevents Biofilm formation
Hydrofiber™ Technology helps create an ideal environment for healing and for Ag+ Technology to work. - Transforms into a cohesive gel on contact with wound fluid, the gelling action creates an optimal environment for wound healing. - Locks in excess exudate, bacteria and biofilm to help minimise cross infection and prevent maceration - 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
Wounds where there is an infection or an increased risk of infection
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
Wounds where bacteria are a suspected cause of (or a factor in) chronicity /non-progression.
