- Dual-purpose antimicrobial dressing absorbs with the power of ionic silver
- It kills a broad spectrum of wound pathogens in the dressing that can cause infection – including MRSA and VRE
- Indicated for partial-thickness burns, skin graft and donor sites, postoperative wounds, diabetic foot ulcers, leg ulcers and pressure ulcers.
Antimicrobial Wound Dressing
Aquacel Silver (Ag) Antimicrobial Wound Dressing is an absorbent, antimicrobial barrier dressing that features all the benefits of Aquacel dressing plus ionic silver. Aquacel Silver (Ag) Dressing is a sterile, white, fibrous dressing derived from 100% pure sodium carboxymethylcellulose (NaCMC). Aquacel dressing is soft, nonwoven, conformable and highly absorbent. Dry Aquacel (Ag) fibers gel on contact with the wound fluid. As fibers swell, they wick wound exudate, including bacteria, away from the wound. The ionic silver within Aquacel (Ag) provides an immediate and sustained antimicrobial activity to kill a broad spectrum of wound pathogens. The silver ions are evenly distributed throughout the dressing making them readily available throughout the wear time of the dressing.
