Aquacel Ag Hydrofiber Dressing 5cm x 5cm
(S7505AG)

Aquacel Ag Hydrofiber Dressings
are ideal for wounds that are infected or at high risk from infections such as MRSA. This versatile primary dressing combines the unique gelling action of Hydrofiber Technology with the broad-spectrum antimicrobial properties of ionic silver (1.2% w/w) for moderately and highly exuding chronic and acute wounds such as:
  • Partial thickness (second-degree) burns.
  • Diabetic foot ulcers, leg ulcers and pressure ulcers.
  • Surgical wounds.
  • Traumatic wounds.
  • Wounds that are prone to bleeding.
  • Oncology wounds.
  • Donor and recipient graft sites.
The dressing fibres of Aquacel Ag gel on contact with wound fluid, swelling as they lock exudate away from the wound, where the ionic silver kills the pathogens that can cause infection, including MRSA, VRE and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

Aquacel Ag Hydrofiber Dressings are free from latex. Each pack contains 10 dressings that are 5cm x 5cm in size.

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.
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. The Aquacel Ag dressing should then be covered with an appropriate secondary wound care dressing.
