Quick Overview

Product Description
Exudate Management – For moderately to heavily exuding wounds
AQUACEL Ag Hydrofiber dressing is Sodium Carboxymethylcellulose with 1.2% ionic silver. It offers the unique gelling properties of Hydrofiber technology with the power of ionic silver. The dressing fibres of AQUACEL Ag gel on contact with wound fluid by hydrophilic action. The fibres swell as they lock bacterial exudate away from the wound by vertical wicking, creating a large fluid
absorption capacity.

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.
*Please refer to pack insert for full instructions prior to use.

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
*AQUACEL Ag dressing is of the same construction as AQUACEL dressing with the addition of ionic silver

Indications
AQUACEL Ag dressing is indicated as a primary dressing for moderately to heavilyexuding 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
